The Belfast branch of the Community Action Tenants Union (CATU Ireland) are staging an information and picnic event this Saturday (June 18 2022) at 2pm in Alexandra Park (Castleton Gardens entrance) in north Belfast.

CATU Ireland is a union for communities and tenants, including renters, council tenants, mortgage holders and people in emergency and precarious living situations.

The campaigning community group’s ‘Summer Social’ event extends an open invitation: ''Everyone is welcome. Bring your flat-mates, bring your neighbours, bring your kids and bring your pets if you like.

''Have some food in the sunshine (hopefully) and meet the people who live in your community.

''We’ve made an eventbrite page to gauge numbers as we’ll be bringing along some food to complement your own picnic lunch so if you are planning on joining please sign up at https://tinyurl.com/catu-summer/ for a ticket."
