Alex Easton MLA today praised the Orange Order, the Bands and all those involved in organizing the 12th celebrations in Newtownards

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said.

“This has been a very successful 12th of July celebration which saw the day start of in Bangor and then onto the main demonstration in Newtownards, with the PSNI confirming to me that thousands of spectators lined the streets of Newtownards to watch the four Orange Order Districts and bands walk through Newtownards.”

“It was a great privilege to take part in this family day out, and with all the family entertainment that was laid on, food stalls and play facility’s for the children at the field in Newtownards made it an even better day out for all. I would pay tribute to Newtownards District and to all those involved in all the organization on the day and for the way the 6 minute protest was held both in Newtownards and Bangor in a peaceful and dignified manner.”
