Letter of Condolence to the family of the late Rev. Canon Albert Thomas (Kerry) Waterstone

Minutes:

Alderman Guy requested a letter of condolence be sent to the family of the late Rev. Canon Albert Waterstone, who was the founder of the ‘Ulster Project’ in 1975. 

 

Alderman Guy explained that the project was a peace-making organisation that worked with teenagers from Northern Ireland and was dedicated to the promotion of a peaceful co-existence between Catholic and Protestant teenagers by building tolerance, trust and ongoing positive relationships amongst potential leaders from both traditions.

 

He added that over 3000 teenagers from the City, Castlederg, Sion Mills, Portadown, Fermanagh, Coleraine and Belfast had benefitted from lasting friendships made when they had participated in the Ulster Project in various parts of America.
