Ballinlough Needs YOU!

Help clean up the area around the Japanese Gardens and Gus Healy pool on Saturday 26th May, 2012 – the first in a series of Ballinlough clean ups. Meeting at the swimming pool car park at 10am, for two hours of fresh air, community spirit and exercise!

If possible please bring one garden tool, a shovel, sweeping brush or rake. All welcome – children need to be accompanied by an adult!

Bracken Court Clean-Up

Supported by Douglas Tidy Towns volunteers, a large number of Bracken Court resident’s conducted a big spring-clean of their estate. Though Bracken Court is a well-kept estate it too has dark corners filled with rubbish. So we ended up with a large amount of bags. Thanks to everyone who gave a hand!

The other Tidy Towns volunteers weren’t idle either. Conny and Kevin painted more ESB boxes, Sheila and Barry conducted a litter pick on the Grange road and Donnybrook Hill, while Aidan did the same in the village.

Fresh colour for ESB boxes

Among the many things tackled last Saturday was the painting of some of the ESB boxes in the village – an excellent job by Brian and Kevin!

We also did the regular litter pick – in particular the Douglas Woods needed our attention. 4 bags hauled out of there alone.
