Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Alderman Noel Williams, has paid tribute following the sad passing of a much-respected and long-serving Council colleague Jackie Waide.

The Mayor said:

"Like many in Carrickfergus, I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Jackie.

"Jackie was somebody I have known for a long time, both through Council and also a range of other groups and activities, including bowls, and I was fortunate to call him a friend.

"He was a key member of our parks team and his passion and commitment to his role and serving his community through his work shone bright.

"We were all very proud of Jackie when he won the prestigious Green Flag Northern Ireland Employee of the Year, which was fitting recognition of his great work and just one of his many achievements.

"Jackie leaves a lasting legacy in Mid and East Antrim and we are thankful for all that he did to make this area a better place.

"He will be greatly missed in Council and throughout

Carrickfergus and the wider Borough.

"My thoughts are with his family, his colleagues and his many friends."
