Alex Easton MLA has today called on Ards and North Down Council to make repairs to the Maypole in Holywood as quickly as possible.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“It was reported to me that the Maypole was damaged due to the recent bad weather, and having seen pictures of the damage I have reported this to Council. The Maypole is an iconic image for the people of Holywood and its history dates back to the 1700s, it is too important to the people of Holywood to be left in a state of disrepair. I have urged the Council to do repairs as quickly as possible, and ensure the Maypole is safe for generations to come.
