F.G. Wilson Announcement – Statement from the Bishop of Connor and the Rector of Larne

Diocesan News

Added on 14/09/2012

From The Rt Revd Alan Abernethy, Bishop of Connor and The Ven. Stephen Forde, Archdeacon of Dalriada and Rector of Larne and Inver:

News of the loss of 760 jobs from F.G. Wilson’s comes as a severe blow for the communities of Larne and Monkstown in East Antrim, and also the community in West Belfast. At this time of rising unemployment, the loss of any person’s job is devastating for individuals, families and the wider community.

The Church of Ireland, ministering through its local parishes and the Diocese of Connor, and in co–operation with other churches, offers its support to every individual affected by this news. We also encourage local elected representatives and the Northern Ireland Executive to do everything within their powers to reduce the impact of these job losses, and create new job opportunities for this highly skilled workforce.
