Sign of the times! thumbnailThe Limavady bypass, Broad Road near to the junction of Greystone Road, where signs directing traffic towards the town could be erected.

THE issue of signs to direct traffic towards Limavady town has been raised as a key factor to encourage passing trade and tourism at a recent Roe Valley Chamber of Commerce AGM.
‘Welcome to Limavady' signage was highlighted as a serious requirement to help divert passing traffic into the town, increasing investment and promoting the area instead of it being ignored by drivers.
Chamber President Rose-Marie Jenkins outlined the need for by-pass signs to promote the town as somewhere worth visiting, in a speech to members on Wednesday (March 22).
This issue of signage has been rumbling on for 13 years, as the Chamber has been pushing for appropriate welcoming signs to mark Limavady as a place to visit and shop.
The annual meeting was officiated by Councillor Aaron Callan, along with Deputy Mayor James McCorkell, who both commended the work of the Chamber highlighting the important role it plays in representing the business community in the Roe Valley.
Elected on the night were President Rose Marie Jenkins for her second term; Secretary Eileen Gamble; Treasurer Kathleen McCaul and PR Officer Julie Brolly.
The elected members of the committee were Lucille Brolly, Brian McCloskey, Hazel Simpson, Lisa Smyth and Betty McNerlin.
