Stewart Dickson MLA said:  “I am delighted to welcome LifeCycles and the Mayur Indian Restaurant into the town centre.  These new businesses are a fantastic addition to the on-going regeneration of Carrick Town Centre.

“Lifecycles.bike Coffee House is an innovative new business, which is the first of its kind in Northern Ireland.  While offering bicycle sales and repairs it also has a Cyclist’s Café, which offers quality coffee and light bites available to all.


Mr Dickson continued: “The Mayur Indian Restaurant offers an impressive 50-plus seater restaurant, overlooking the harbour and Carrick Castle; it is the only seated Indian Restaurant in the town centre.

Mr Dickson concluded:  “I wish both these businesses every success and I look forward to Carrickfergus having a long and prosperous partnership with them.



Stewart Dickson MLA at the First Trust Bank in Carrickfergus - 1 Oct 14 

East Antrim MLA, Stewart Dickson, has blasted the First Trust Bank following a meeting with Mr Des Moore, the banks Director of Personal and Business Banking.  Mr Dickson expressed disappointment and frustration on behalf of the banks account holders, particularly charities, churches and personal account holders. 

Stewart Dickson MLA said:  “The move of accounts to Glengormley will be a massive blow to personal banking customers, especially those without their own transport.  There is no direct public transport to Glengormley and to get there customers will have to use two trains or buses there and back, with any customers who are elderly or ill, this is a totally unacceptable situation.

He went on to say:  “I consider that the First Trust is abandoning Carrickfergus completely with the additional withdrawal of its the cash machine.  Their offer of Internet Banking may be a solution for some but certainly not for all clients.

“This decision will impact adversely on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).  Local businesses are concerned that due to the now enforced extra travel involved, and the expenses incurred while they have to go about their daily banking duties, that their services will be reduced and they will lose customers whilst costing businesses time and money.  They are also concerned that the Post Office will be unable to provide a suitable alternative or full replacement service.

Mr Dickson concluded:  “Businesses and customers may wish to download Consumer Council Factsheets regarding alternative banking options at:  www.consumercouncil.org/publications Consumers can also get a free copy by contacting the Consumer Council on 0800 121 6022 or via facebook or twitter.”


East Antrim MLA Stewart Dickson has condemned an attack on a house in Larne, targeted for the second time within a week.

Three people escaped injury when four windows were smashed at the home in the Greenland Parade area. The same house was targeted last weekend when attacked by a masked gang armed with baseball bats and a hammer.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: "It is completly unacceptable that this home has been targeted twice in the past week. Violence is not welcome on our streets and those behind these incidents must know it is not what the community wants.

"My thoughts are with the residents of the property, whose lives have been disrupted and put in danger unnecessarily.

"I would urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible to ensure those behind these attacks are dealt with before the courts."
