Holywood and District Community Council
The Community Council is an energetic body, particularly active in the months before May Day. It is great fun to join, but it will always welcome new members.
The Holywood and District Community Council was established in 1974 as an umbrella group for the voluntary associations of Holywood and District. It soon established what was to become the annual May Fair. This restored Holywood’s historic maypole dancing. It also allowed voluntary associations to raise money and present themselves to the public. The Community Council is currently involved in the May Fair, the Turning on of the Christmas Lights, and the Historical Walk around Holywood.
