DOWNSHIRE TENNIS CLUB
|The Club, one of the foremost in the Province outside
Belfast, was formed in 1939. The grounds which include two red sand
courts, pavilion and car parking facilities are situated at Park Street,
During the past season the membership reached a record 160, comprising 80
Seniors, 30 Juniors (under 18) and 50 Juveniles (under 14). Play begins
each year in early April and ends late September. Juveniles are entitled
to play on Weekdays (except Saturday) until 6 p.m. while Juniors and
Seniors can play at any time (except Sunday).
Teams compete in the Belfast and District Leagues and also in the
Mid-Ulster League and for some time past have had considerable success.
There are eight major trophies to be competed for within the club each
year and coaching classes are organized for juveniles and juniors.
The club hope in the near future to build a new pavilion and two years ago
started a Building Fund. Money raising efforts to date have proved most
successful and as these schemes will be necessary for a
considerable time the members will be most grateful to friends and people
of the district for their continuing support.
New members (and it is not necessary to have played tennis before) will be
H. A. COULTER
|My aircraft had just parked, after a few satisfactory
circuits. As the chief flying instructor opened his door and unbuckled the
safety harness, I mused on the day's perfection. We landed directly into a
gentle wind and
I felt contented with my performance. The touch of an encouraging hand or.
the shoulder however awakened me to the reality of the situation. "Now
you'll be quite fine" came the words from my right. "Just taxi out, do one
circuit, about 20 degrees of flap; and I'll be at the other end of the R/T
A little extra throttle freed my wheels from the clutches of the grass;
and I gently rolled towards the building point of runway 22. For an
instant many thoughts flashed through my mind. Not far from here, Ferguson
flew, a long time ago. Did Amy Johnson, Lindberg, Cobham, and all the
others in the Pantheon of flight, have such feelings? Then the months of
training had effect; and there was a strange sensation of perfect rapport
between man and machine. Thus I reached the holding point, watching the
approach for other aircraft.
Now there was little hesitation. I gave full throttle, with a rapidly
increasing right rudder pressure as speed mounted. Must keep my heading. I
was watching many things simultaneously, speed, oil temperature
and pressure. My calmness surprised me, as the speed passed 60; and I
gently eased back the control column. Now she was airborne; but I must
maintain 70. I cannot stall on my first solo! Bend an aircraft! Wreck
The altimeter passed 300 feet; and I could take my hand from the throttle
to trim for the climb out. At 700 feet I commenced a gentle climbing turn
to the left, on the crosswind leg. And so I arrived at 1,000
feet, to level off, throttle back to 2200 revs, from the 2700 of full
power, and retrim.
It seemed almost the blink of an eyelid before I was turning downwind and
calling "Golf Bravo Hotel, downwind for landing over." And there was great
reassurance in the reply. "Roger, Golf Bravo Hotel, call final." A quick
acknowledgement and I was doing my downwind checks, all the while holding
height and direction. "Brakes off, undercarriage down and locked, mixture
rich, carburettor air hot, flaps up, fuel on and sufficient for overshoot,
harnesses tight, hatches secure." For a fleeting instant I spoke aloud.
"What am I doing up here?" But this was a brief prelude to the turn on to
base leg; and it was time to reduce power, lower flaps and trim for an
approach speed of 70.
Movilla graveyard, ominous symbol, had now passed below, on my left; and I
turned on to final approach at 700 feet. A quick snatch of the mike, the
R/T call, "Golf Bravo Hotel on final approach", and a queer tingle at nape
of neck as I read a height of 550 feet. "Quick John! More throttle!" I
told myself. Then over the hill at a safe height of 600 feet, with a
slight throttle closure to keep the runway numbers correctly in my
windscreen. Everything was fine, airspeed 70, 200 feet over Portaferry
Road, clear airspace and runway.
Already I was crossing the threshold and looking ahead the prescribed
distance. A gentle rounding off brought level flight, followed by a
gradual pulling back of the control column, right into the stomach. All
this time my right hand had been on the throttle, slowly reducing power;
and now the crucial moment for landing had arrived, with throttle
completely closed and control column hard back. Thus did my wheels touch
the runway; and with fall of speed the nosewheel lightly kissed the
ground. The rest was a matter of gentle braking towards the far end of the
airfield, to terminate the most exhilarating experience of my life.
|"One of the more exhilarating experiences of flying is
described above. The author is the Honorary Secretary of the Ulster Flying
Club, which had its beginnings in the mid 1920's, during the golden age of
aviation, and due in large measure to great local pioneers such as the
late Lord Londonderry and Wing Commander Preston. In its present form the
Club has a flying membership of around 250, and a social membership of
100. A new clubhouse has been recently built; and there is always a warm
welcome for new members."

LISBURN RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB
|Although Rugby was played in Lisburn in the late 19th and
early 20th Centuries there was a long gap until 1948 when Wallace High
School Old Boys formed a club. This later became Lisburn Academicals who
played in Wallace Park and about 8 or 9 years ago changed its name to
Lisburn Rugby Football Club.
About 4 or 5 years ago the club bought ground on the Eglantine Road
completed and opened at the new grounds and the club now provides one at
Blaris and laid out 2 pitches. In September 1974 a new pavilion was of the
best playing and clubhouse complexes in Ireland.
Currently there are six teams representing the club. The 1st XV in the
Junior League, 2nd XV in the Minor League, 3A XV in the Fourth Division
League and 3C XV and 3D XV who at the moment only play friendly matches.
The lst XV this season reached the quarter final of the Town's Cup.
Overall the Club has more than 300 members and is growing rapidly. There
are over 130 playing members and the rest are non-playing or associate
members. Two ex-members have played for Ireland in the past ten years and
a number of others for Ulster whilst six or seven have joined Senior Clubs
and play in the Senior League. One ex-member Ray Hunter toured South
Africa with the British Lions in 1962.
THE ALPHA BADMINTON CLUB
|The Club started in 1932 when some members of the Lisburn
Cricket club decided to form a club to maintain contact with each other
during the winter months. They used the Temperance Institute Hall at the
end of Railway Street in Lisburn and after a couple of years moved to the
British Legion Hall in Sackville Street, opposite Brownlee Primary School.
In 1957 they moved to the R.B.Y. Hall on the Hillhall Road. The club then
expanded from being a one night a week club with 20-25 members to a four
night a week club with a Juvenile Section on Saturday Afternoon
-membership rose to over a hundred.
About 1966 the Alpha joined with Hilden Lawn Tennis Club in serious fund
raising for joint premises at the bottom of Lewellyn Avenue. Their hopes
were fulfilled when the new hall was opened in November 1971. There are
three badminton courts in the hall and the club is organized to suit all
standards and all ages. The Senior Club plays on a Tuesday and this caters
for high standard players. Current members include Ken Carlisle and Danny
Blair who between them have over 60 Irish Cups.
The Minor Club is an adult club catering for all standards from beginners
upwards. They play on Monday and Thursday nights. The Ladies' Club plays
on Wednesday mornings giving play for many young mothers who bring their
children along. There are three sections for younger members. The Junior
Juvenile Club covers the 7 to 10 year olds and plays from 10 to 12 every
Saturday morning. On Saturday afternoons the Juvenile Club meets from 2 to
5, the ages ranging from 10 to 14. On Friday and Saturday nights (7 to
10.30) the Intermediate Club plays, the ages being between 12 and 16.
The Club has 300 members now and there are waiting lists for most sections
of the club. Subscriptions range from £2 to £5.

THE TRUE STORY BEHIND OPERATION MOBILIZATION
|An elderly lady, a Gospel of John, and a schoolboy. These
are the instruments which God used to reach millions with the Gospel of
Christ and bring a new dimension into the experience of many Christians
all over the world. For although the vision for Operation Mobilization (O.M.)
was born in Spain in the hearts of a group of young people in 1961, the
seed had been sown some years previously, when an elderly American lady
began praying for the local school students. For 18 years she prayed that
God would do something in that school, that young people would not only
come to receive Christ but that they would be witnesses for him to the
uttermost parts of the world.
As she prayed she sent a Gospel of John to one of the boys who surrendered
his life to Jesus Christ and several hundred in the school came to know
Christ through his witness. After entering University he began to meet
with several others each day in prayer, claiming the same promises from
God's Word which had inspired this lady. At the same time, they were doing
evangelistic work together, but they found few people who did not have at
least some portion of the Scriptures.
As they looked across to Mexico and read about other countries in
different parts of the world God showed them that there were literally
millions of people who had never recieved a Gospel Tract, let alone read
a portion of Scripture or heard the Gospel preached. Yet what could they
do? They were only young. They had to finish their education. But as they
prayed together, they were given a strategy from God, to us their holidays
for intensive evangelistic efforts in nearby countries.
And now 15 years later over 700 young people are working with O.M.
throughout the world with nearly 2,000 others joining them during the
summer vacation to help take the Gospel to every home in numerous
Some thought of using an ocean-going ship in Asia. Such a vessel would
serve as a mobile training base while also undertaking large evangelistic
campaigns in the ports of the Orient. However, the greatest prob lem was
not to find a suitable ship but to find qualified Christian seamen who
would be willing to give up a well paid career to serve on the crew. In
1966, the first big step forward came in answer to prayer when a certified
Captain joined the project. Then one after another additional crew members
came forward, many of whom had been converted after people had began to
pray for the ship. During the winter of 1969/70, the crew was almost
completed and the leaders of the project, feeling that the time was near,
inspected several ships. God closed the door on two, which later turned
out to be unseaworthy, and led them to a Danish ship, The Umanak. At least
two other buyers had put down their deposits on this vessel but were not
able to come up with the full payment; so on the 15th September 1970, O.M.
signed a contract to buy the Umanak. In answer to the prayers of people
all over the world, God provided all that was necessary to purchase the
Ship, later renamed the M.V. Logos (the word).
The leader of O.M. George Verwer paid a visit to Lisburn early in 1963 and
challenged many Christian young people to go out to spread the Gospel to
other needy lands during their vacations. Through the years numerous
people have responded to the call and at present from Lisburn there are
two in Turkey, one in the Lebanon, one in Belgium and one on the M.V.
Logos in India. From O.M. many have progressed into Bible College and some
have trained for the Gospel Ministry. From September 1963 young people
realised the need to encourage everyone to read Christian Literature; from
that time the team in Lisburn has devoted each Friday night to distribute
this Christian Literature from door-to-door.
Many people have helped and some have found Jesus Christ as their own
personal Saviour. In Ravarnette Primary School, Lisburn, a special Harvest
Offering of £15 was collected for the work of O.M. in Turkey.
Those interested in the work of O.M. are invited to write for further
information to: Operation Mobilization, 142 Dantzic Street, Manchester M4

LISNAGARVEY OPERATIC AND DRAMATIC SOCIETY
|The Society was formed in 1918 when it was known as the
Lisburn Choral & Orchestral Society. For 10 years it presented concerts
and gave performances of the Messiah etc. Then in 1928 the first stage
presentation was The Mikado followed by other Gilbert and Sullivan Operas
in succeeding years. At the outbreak of war in 1939 the Society went
dormant. Upon the cessation of hostilities the Lisnagarvey Male Voice
Choir was formed. Again concerts were given and eventually, upon being
joined by the ladies, Lisnagarvey Operatic Society was formed and
virtually all of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas were performed until in
1964 it broke into musical comedy with, "The Quaker Girl", Every year
since then more ambitious musicals were performed such as "Oklahoma",
White Horse Inn'', "Brigadoon" etc. In 1971 the Society for the first
time, entered the N.I. Festival of Light Opera held at Bangor, Co. Down
and won the Festival Trophy and the trophy for the best actor and actress
with their production of "The Merry Widow".
In 1972 the Society decided to offer Pantomime to its many patrons in the
Lisburn District and this proved so successful that it has become an
The following year indicated that there was need for Drama in the area, so
a drama section was formed and local playwright Sam Cree permitted the
performance of his play, "Married Bliss". By public demand last year the
Society was asked to sponsor and organise a performance of the Messiah.
This was successfully presented before Christmas by the United Church
Choirs of the Lisburn District and guest soloists. The proceeds were
allocated to the Abbeyfield Society. The Society meets for rehearsals on
Tuesday and Friday evenings at "Dalboyne", Belsize Road, Lisburn. The
various shows are performed in Lisburn Technical Assembly College Hall by
kind permission of the Principal, Mr. D. Wright and the S.E. Education and

LISBURN AND DISTRICT DOG TRAINING CLUB
|In 1970 a group of people got together and decided to
form a dog club with the aim of training their own dogs in general
The first of the training sessions were held in the Lisburn Markets and
proved very successful. During the past few years the club's success
brought more interest and the membership is now sixty. More suitable
premises was required and the club is now in the E.M.B. Hall, Hilden,
where weekly meetings are held each Tuesday evening at 7.30 p.m.
Each training night is divided into three classes: the first being the
beginners class which commences at 7.30 p.m. and lasts approx. forty-five
minutes. The aim of this class is to train the dogs to walk properly at
heel, to be steady at the stand, to sit and down at the various commands
of their owners. The owners are also given instruction in how to treat and
handle their dogs at home as well as in the club.
The secnd class commences at 8.30 p.m., and more advanced dogs are catered
for in the third class.
Some dogs have been so skilfully trained that they now are competing
throughout Northern Ireland in competitive obedience tests.
Success can only be measured by achievement and the winning of the overall
Junior Handlers Trophy for Northern Ireland by the club together with many
cups and trophies won by members in individual classes gives
a clear picture of the club's achievement. For details see advertisement

inter-towns and provincial leagues. We already have a few swimmers among
our ranks who have made great achievements in the swimming world. These
children are going forth to the finals of the All Ireland inter-schools
finals in Dublin on 1st March, 1975.
Next year we hope these children will be able to swim for the name of our
club to give us our debut in the leagues.
We hope we are doing good for these and the many children who come to
train with us, but the real message of this is to the many more children
who can swim and who would like to train, improve their swimming and maybe
swim for us.
To all these children I extend a hearty welcome on any Tuesday night at
8.30 p.m. After all, you never know how good you are until you try.

LISBURN COMBAT CANCER GROUP
|The Lisburn Combat Cancer Group was formed in 1971 as one
of many branches of the Ulster Cancer Foundation. It consists of about
eighteen people who run two or three efforts per year to raise money for
the Foundation. All this money remains in Northern Ireland to further
education and research into cancer.
The Education officers from the Foundation have a full-time job visiting
various groups and schools to lecture on the subject of cancer with
special emphasis on the dangers of smoking.
Recently, enough money had been raised to establish a Chair of Oncology at
Queen's University, and Dr. Sidney Lowry returned to Ulster to take this

ROAD SAFETY IN LISBURN AND DISTRICT
The Lisburn Road Safety Committee was formed in 1961. Since then it has
continued to promote all aspects of road safety. Under our guidance many
Tufty Clubs have opened in schools and play groups, the National
Proficiency Scheme which operates in our area is drawing in more pupils
for training each year.
We as a committee are always alert to the dangers, both local and more
universal, which affect both pedestrian and driver alike and make our
thoughts known through the various channels which are open to us.
A representative from each Road Safety Committee in Northern Ireland meets
quarterly to discuss wider issues under the auspice of Northern Ireland
Road Safety Council.
We run annually The Car Driver of The Year competition and find the public
support this event extremely well, although we would always like to see
more entries. This year we are running a Motor Cyclist of The Year
competition and hope also to make this an annual event. This along with
our Cycling Gymkhana held in Dunmurry to find our team to represent
Lisburn and District area in the Northern Ireland Championships.
In 1973 the Dunmurry Road Safety Committee and the Lisburn Road Safety
Committee combined to become the Lisburn Borough Road Safety Committee. We
now cover a much larger area but find this gives us much more scope for
our events, etc. We meet once a month in the Town Hall, Lisburn, and any
query may be sent through our Secretary, Mr. J. S. Mullan, at the Town
Hall during office hours.
