Tidy Village Initiative General Meeting November 19th at 8 pm in McGowans

The Tidy Towns Team were successful with their application for a grant of €1,000 from the Dublin City Community Enhancement Programme.  A meeting of the team takes place on Monday evening next – November 19th – at 8pm in McGowan’s. The aim is to set up a committee and agree how best to utilise the available funds and to plan next steps. Obviously “many hands make light work” and this is one opportunity where young and old can have their say in making a real, visible contribution to the locality. Please come along.


Harold’s Cross – Autumn clean-up 2018

Meet at the Top of Harold’s Cross Park at 9.45 am on Saturday the 20th of October.

The Tidy Towns team has postponed the “Autumn Clean-up Morning” for a week due to the awful weather forecast for Saturday morning. The Clean-up will now take place on Saturday, October 20th. The arrangements are to meet at the main gate to the Park on Harold’s Cross Road at 9:45am when teams will be dispatched to eliminate weeds and other unsightly material along the road from the Bridge to the Mount Tallant junction. Gloves, pickers, hoes, shovels, wheelbarrows, bags etc. will be supplied. It’s a family event and a fun & positive way to join the neighbours and “give a little back” while improving the village. It’s scheduled for 2 hours but whatever time you can come for is very much appreciated. The attached photo shows the happy crew preparing to set off at a previous Clean-up!

This should take from 10 am until about 1 pm but if you can just spare a half an hour or an hour, that’s fine too – every little helps. Just wear comfortable clothes.

When we’re finished, DCC will come along and take away all the bags  – this can be very satisfying.  In the photograph you can see a group of satisfied Cleaners from a previous clean-up.
