The competition is part of a programme of events to help decide if new social or affordable housing is needed in the Lurganare area. Sinead Collins, the Housing Executive’s Rural Unit Co-ordinator, explained, “We are encouraging anyone in housing need to register with us. Often in rural areas people do not register as they feel they will have little chance of being housed in their local area. “However, this leads to a situation where no new homes are ever provided because there is no apparent need. As well as a drawing sheet, each child was given a leaflet for their parent or guardian encouraging anyone in genuine housing need to come forward. “The standard of drawings was very high. While we might not be able to provide all of the great features designed by the children like swimming pools, slides and game rooms, identifying that there is a need is the first step on the road to providing decent homes where they are needed,” Sinead added. The Housing Executive would encourage anyone in housing need in the Lurganare area to contact it before 17 April by calling 028 9031 8524 or e-mail Eoin.Mckinney@nihe.gov.uk quoting “LD Lurganare” for further information and to register an interest. The Housing Executive would like to thank the pupils, and their teachers, for helping to organise the competition. The winner from St Mary’s Primary School, Barr was Morrigan McEvoy who is in P6.
