Another long day!
This was an extremely long day for me with an early start in the morning and not home at night until almost 11.30. It was also extremely busy. I started with a meeting of the DUP ministers in the Executive and then had a debate in the Assembly on a CAL committee report on funding for the arts. This was followed by a departmental question time and there were questions about the Irish language, the Ulster-Scots Agency, amateur football and the Public Record Office.
In the evening I travelled up to Portadown for a 10th anniversary celebration for a community initiative named PLACE, which works in the PUL (Protestant-Unionist-Loyalist) estates in the Portadown area - Brownstown, Corcrain, Rectory, Redmandville and Killicomaine. This is an example of good practice in community development and the communities and the organisation deserve great credit for all they have achieved.
