Protect our blue spaces and get involved in community activities!


Our borough has a wealth of blue space including lakes, loughs and rivers – beautiful places that can have the most wonderful impact on our mental health and wellbeing.

Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is a partner of ‘Live Here Love Here’, and their latest campaign – Healthy Oceans, Healthy Minds’ – is back for 2023 and encourages communities and individuals to come together and reconnect with the array of waterways around them.

Taking place from 19th August to 3rd September, funding for events is available, so if you have an idea that would bring people together near a blue space in our borough, why not get in touch? Past events have included litter picks on various rivers throughout the borough followed by a few refreshments!

So why not take the time to seek out these places with family and friends and reap the benefits that spending time by water can do for you!

Contact Live Here Love Here at and see what you can do to help yourself, your family, your friends, your community and enjoy the natural resources that we have in our borough.

Or for further help or support on wellbeing events, health programmes and awareness, you can contact the council Health Improvement Officers on  or
