Michael Henderson - Belfast South & mid Down

I have lived all my life in South Belfast. I am recently widowed as I lost my wife to Pulmonary Fibrosis. I have 3 grown up children and 5 grandsons. I have been involved in Belfast South from the late 1990s as a director and vice chairman of Community Technical Aid working with the Belfast action teams and local community groups in making Belfast work.


I served in the Army and T/A from 1973 - 1997. I was elected and served 25 years as a Councillor to Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council and elected as Mayor twice. I was awarded a Member of the British Empire MBE for services to the community.
