On Sunday morning 27 Volunteers and 2 Transition Year students gathered for the Weekly Litter Pick. Although a very large area was covered, we were pleasantly surprised how little rubbish there was to be collected. Pat collected 15 bags of Litter and 1 bag of Cans.
Denis took the Transition Year students back to Westgate where they planted some more Fruit Trees.



On Monday morning John, Adrian, Thomas and Gay completed the work they had started last week on Old Fort Road. Afterwards they returned to the Link Road to remove the enormous amount of rubbish that had been dumped near the Fire Station. A huge number of bags of household rubbish and clothes were among the items removed. They filled 5 one-tonne bags with what they removed.
This is an absolute disgrace. The matter is being taken very seriously by the authorities and the area is now being monitored very closely.


Tuesday morning Jimmy, Adrian and Thomas cleaned the road leading from the old Health Centre to opposite the bicycle shop on Inniscarra Road.

They then continued cleaning on Inniscarra Road between the bicycle shop and Westgrove.

Between both jobs they collected 12 plastic bags of Weeds and Earth. This work has made a huge difference.
Ger and the lads spent Thursday morning planting 5 more Beech saplings to fill the gaps in the hedge in front of Alysbury. They also cleaned the weeds taking from under the hedge to give the saplings every chance to grow.


On Saturday 6th May come join us for the most important sunrise of the year and help raise much needed funds for suicide prevention.
