Many of you may have see notices in recent weeks that after a break of 18 years, a group in Castleknock are re-starting a Tidy Towns group in the area. The group has met on a couple of occasions and they are now organizing their first community clean up for Saturday the 13th of April. Teams will meet in Myo’s car park at 10am and the first clean up will be focused on Auburn Avenue.
This is a great example of a community initiative and we would encourage people to consider getting involved. With our Neighbourhood Watch Area spanning Auburn Avenue, it would be a great place to start and we will all benefit from the initiative. A number of our own residents are already involved and I expect that any additional volunteers would be appreciated.
Volunteers on the day are asked to wear old clothes and bring your gardening gloves. You can also bring any other equipment you like to use when tidying up your own garden (brush, grass edger, rake etc). The Tidy Towns group will have bibs, litter pickers, bags and gloves available on the day.
The tidy towns group have their own facebook page and we will add a link to our Pines Hadleigh page. If you are interested in getting more involved, let me know and I can connect you with some of our own residents that are involved in the group to date.
