Glin Tidy Towns Needs You!!

Shout out to Tidy Towns Volunteers. Β πŸ“’πŸ“’πŸ“’πŸ“’πŸ“’πŸ“’πŸ“’ A big THANK YOU to all those who have volunteered on the Tidy Towns initiative. As they say ” a little can make a big difference”. With this in mind, and Glin’s entry into the nationwide Tidy Towns competition, it’s decided that there will be a call to action every Saturday morning from 10am till midday, and on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8, from now through the summer months. If you are free on any of these dates and can give a little of your time, it would help and go a long way to getting Glin looking clean and spruced ready for Summer. (We’ve been reliably informed it’s going to be a scorcher!!!😎😎😎). Your help can include, litter picking your own area, (we have many doing this already on a regular basis), litter picking a black spot area, clearing weeds from the path verges, general weeding of areas needing attention, painting, and bringing to the Tidy Towns attention areas that might have previously been missed. We still need volunteers from Marian Place, Corbry Estate and Church Street to go on the volunteers list. If you would like to get involved in this initiative please give your name to Marie Geoghegan, Marie Fitzgerald or Eoghan Ryan. There are vis vests, bags and gloves available. We have a limited number of litter pickers. Anybody who has previously taken a litter picker and who feels they may not make use of it, can return it to any member of the Tidy Towns committee. Meeting point is the Courthouse, and from there it will be decided what needs to be tackled. It would be great to see young people getting involved, as it builds a good community spirit for the future. It also instills a pride of place and heightens awareness and promotes personal responsibility for litter. Please be vigilant of anyone dumping rubbish and please report any sightings of rubbish dumping to the Dept of the Environment or any member of Glin Tidy Towns.
