Local Community groups enjoy Titanic Belfast and SS Nomadic

On Sunday 20th January, over 50 community groups from across Belfast enjoyed a day out at Titanic Belfast & SS Nomadic.

Maritime Belfast organised for over 55 organisations & community groups across Belfast, including Belfast City Council, Belfast City of Sanctuary, RNIB, Sure Start, as well as former H&W Employees to visit Titanic Belfast and SS Nomadic.

Around 1,000 families, young people, senior citizens and people with disabilities were able to visit the award winning visitor attraction for free.

Tommy O’Reilly, Community Development Officer from Belfast City Council said, “Today was a fantastic day to reunite the people of Belfast with their seafaring heritage. There are groups from Hannahstown, Avoniel, Ligoniel, Suffolk and Lenadoon, all who have had a tremendous day out. It’s great to see this part of Belfast re-emerging for local people to enjoy. A big thank you to all the staff involved for such a great day out.”

Anne Fitzpatrick from Hannahstown Community Centre, highlighted, “ We loved the day from start to finish, such a great experience, with surprises around every corner from the Titanic Shipyard Ride to climbing on board SS Nomadic. I can’t wait to tell all my friends and look forward to coming back.”
