LISBURN District Policing Partnership has
awarded funding to The Logic Cafe in Moira to allow it to
purchase an LCD Projector.
The cafe was set up in 2001 to build bridges
between the church and the community in Moira.
It is located at The Old School, Main Street
(opposite the Police Station) and offers young people between
the ages of 10 and 18 a safe environment to socialise, develop
personal identity and have fun.
It is run by a team of committed staff whose
aim is to provide young people with an opportunity to meet and
interact while encouraging their personal and social development
in a non-threatening environment and helping them to reach their
full potential as young adults.
The new projector will be used to view slide
shows, play videos and as part of games played by the young
Matt Peach, The Logic Cafe Development
Officer said: "The LCD projector has significantly added to our
existing facilities enabling us to show music videos, slide show
presentations from various trips the young people attend and we
can also link it to our new X-Box and Nintendo Wii.
"By updating and improving our facilities we
have increased our appeal to more young people providing them
with an alternative to congregating on the streets or getting
involved in anti-social behaviour."
Councillor Thomas Beckett, Chairman of
Lisburn DPP added: "The provision of this projector will provide
hours of entertainment to the young people who visit The Logic
"This facility provides a focal point for
teenagers to meet up and hang out together, whilst at the same
time detracting them from engaging in any unwanted activity in
the local area. The District Policing Partnership is pleased to
support this initiative in Moira."
