#AWeeBitOfHope campaign

  • Spread a wee bit of hope

    We still need to be on our guard against COVID-19, but the longer evenings and warmer temperatures give us hope for better days ahead.

    So, this spring, we’re using our social media channels to spread #AWeeBitOfHope.

    Follow us to hear stories and view pictures of colour returning to our city as a new season begins – in our gardens, local parks, streets and communities.

    Find us on:

    We want to hear from you too. Use #AWeeBitOfHope to tell us:

    • what you’re planting
    • the spaces you’ve discovered in lockdown
    • the neighbours you’ve made friends with
    • the virtual group you couldn’t have done without

    You can also email your stories to

    We’d love to see your seasonal pictures. Send us your snaps of beautiful blooms, outdoor life and other uplifting shots of Belfast awakening.

  • City Matters cover photo competition
