AUTUMN COLOUR NEAR CHURCH OF CHRIST OUR LIGHT IN INNISHMORE
Four bags of leaves were collected from Beech Road.
One bag from St. Oliver’s Cemetery.
There were 10-ton bags of leaves collected from Fernwalk Residents.
Twelve bags collected from Rosewood Estate.
There were three small bags collected from Innishmore Lawn Residents.
Fr Sexton Park Residents were extremely busy collecting fifty-six bags of leaves so far.
All the leaves collected are placed in Compost Bay 1 at the Allotment which is filling up nicely.
There are huge amounts of fallen leaves on the Carrigrohane/Straight Road footpath heading East and on the cycle lane heading West. A huge ‘thank you’ to the staff from the Ballincollig Area Office of Cork City Council working to remove them and for arranging the Road Sweeper.
WEEKLY LITTER PICK
There were twenty-two Volunteers and fourteen Transition Year students out for our weekly Litter Pick. With this number we were in a position to cover a very wide area.
Eleven bags of litter were collected on the Litter Pick.
Some of our Volunteers carried out daily Litter Picks and four bags of Litter, one bag of Cans, one bag of Plastic and one bag of Glass were collected.
While some of the Transition Year students were litter picking, we put others in groups of three and they collected the fallen leaves. Groups of three allowed for social distancing to be adhered to and still get the job done. The work they did in the hour made a huge difference.
They filled five-ton bags. Normally one-ton bag is taken to equal ten large black bags.

FREEPOST DONATE BOX
Our Freepost Donate Box is now available for filling. Should you wish to donate a new book or some new magazines and perhaps a treat of a packet of biscuits or sweets to accompany it we will be putting them in envelopes and having them sent to the elderly living alone, or in nursing/care homes in our community. It is our way to let people know they have not been forgotten at this time when it is not possible for them to have visitors. If you would like to be part of this, please drop your donation to the box at Pat Clarkes Ballincollig Tool Hire, Innishmore (087) 6348807 and we will do the rest.
