Jews and World War 2

Superb exhibition running in North Down Museum highlighting how Northern Ireland was a place of refuge for those fleeing from Nazi Germany.

The accompanying leaflet states :- “During the war, members of the Belfast Hebrew Congregation, now known as the Belfast Jewish Community, answered the call to defend our freedoms and many of their powerful testimonies are relived in the exhibition. “

It is a superb and for us unusual exhibition which is well worth a visit. Certainly bring the children along in order that the effects of tyranny are not forgotten through the generations.

Runs Tuesday 8 January to Sunday 3 February.

Bangor Hospital

Bangor hospital is inadequate for a town this size. Even it’s car park is not fit for purpose.

There was a campaign a few years ago asking it be replaced.

At the time two of our MLA’s had a role in the health remit at Stormont. They were found lacking.

Perhaps it’s time to revisit the provision of a hospital in Bangor, we deserve it.

Graffiti in Bangor

Shameful increase in graffiti around the town.

It seems Council can’t keep up with the very expensive task of removal.

Nonetheless it is a task that must be treated with urgency.
