A GROUP of young people in Maghera recently took part in a drama project that was performed at the Lurach Centre in December.

The drama ‘When you got to go, you got to go’ was written by George Shiels and performed by young people from two community organisations, Maghera Youth Connect and Curragh Young Farmers.

The drama project, was funded through the EU’s Programme for PEACE andReconciliation (PEACE III) managed by the Special EU Programmes Body. The funding was administered through the SW Cluster PEACE III Partnership. The project was another step towards bridging relations between young peoplein the town and giving them the opportunity to build relations through common interests.

The young group rehearsed together for the project for twelve weeks before performing for the Maghera community at Christmas.

Heather Boyd, Youth Leader with Maghera Youth Connect, who managed the

delivery of the project, said “We were glad to receive the opportunity to deliver this project with funding assistance.

“We have been working hard to encourage young people to get involved in these types of projects and the young people in these two groups are keen to get involved in more projects that will engage more and more young people in the town and give them the opportunity to socialise with their neighbours and peers.”
