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 people.

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 Cafe.

"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."
