A PSNI recruitment event planned for Derry this weekend (Saturday 10th) has been postponed out of consideration for a couple getting married at the same venue.

Police learned that a protest was being planned at their recruitment event at the Waterfoot Hotel which could disrupt the happy couple’s big day, and therefore decided to put the event back by a week.

Assistant Chief Constable Mark Hamilton said: “A large wedding reception will be taking place at the venue on the same date, and as many people will be aware, a protest against our event has been planned.  Those who would seek to disrupt the day have shown no thought for others.

“Out of consideration for the bride and groom, and to ensure they can fully enjoy their special day without the possibility of any disruption, we have arranged to reschedule the event.  It will take place at the same venue on Saturday, October 17.”
