Commenting on the energy booklet launch, Neil Coleman from Power NI said “The Drumarg Community have shown great initiative by hitting the streets to deliver some excellent advice with a personal touch on how to save energy and money in their homes.” Group leader Stephen McCleary said: “The booklets are a superb way of getting our message out to the homes in the area, we are working to help the local community and our next stage will be to improve our community house.”
