All the latest news (Spring 2013) from Roscrea Tidy Towns
It’s now back to work time for the Committee and volunteers who try to do all the necessary maintenance of shrub and flower beds, planting, painting, tree maintenance, planting new sites in the interest of Biodiversity and Sustainability, sweeping and cleaning etc. and none of this is easy when left to a few. They try to cover all of the town, to include back streets, laneways, entrances, approach roads etc. and they would like a helping hand with their work programme. If you can spare a maximum of five hours per week and are willing to give them a pair of hands, they would greatly appreciate it, and would welcome any support and time you can give them.
Meet them in Rosemary Square on a Saturday morning at 10 a.m and a Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. They will provide the necessary tools required which depends on what task they are undertaking.
Pop Up Shop
A few people from the various Church Communities have got together to make preparations to open a shop in Main Street, to help provide funding for the many projects the Tidy towns volunteers are undertaking with the Schools, the Scouts, Youth Club etc. over the coming months. This shop will open for three weeks in May, and if you would donate any “GOOD AS NEW” Clothes, jewellery, household items, or perhaps make a cake or a few nice cup cakes, to help top up the Tidy Towns funds, it would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be left to Mary Heffernan in Abbey Street, or contact Heather Evans Tullaskeagh, or Eirene Griffin in the Mall for further information with regard to same. Thanks to Ml. Breen for making his premises available to us for this purpose.
Spring Clean Month
In this the year of “The Gathering”, we must present our town in a clean and pristine condition for the many visitors expected to visit our Country from now until the end of the year. With this in mind, Roscrea Tidy Towns volunteers together with the Community Employees will be undertaking “Clean Up” days during the coming month, and request as many as possible to come out and help them if in your area, or ensure your car park and drive way is clean and tidy with no rubble, bottles, cans, papers, cartons etc. disposed of and visible on banks, back yards, corners, drive way etc. Better still, join them on work evenings, or Saturday mornings when you have time.
