Dell staff chip in to clean up

TEN STAFF MEM­BERS HELP COASTCARE GROUP TO COM­BAT LIT­TER­ING

Bray People - - Bray People -

COASTCARE vol­un­teers were joined by a group of Dell em­ploy­ees last Fri­day af­ter­noon for a ‘ Busi­ness in the Com­mu­nity’ clean up of the har­bour area and the back strand.

The af­ter­noon was ar­ranged specif­i­cally for the 10 staff mem­bers to come along and get in­volved with the project to keep the Bray coast­line clean and they all said that they felt it was a worth­while way to spend the day.

The group filled a skip pro­vided by Green­star, ac­cord­ing to Philip Byrne from New­court Road who is the Chair­man of the Bray Group.

‘We would love more peo­ple to come out and give a bit of time,’ said Philip. ‘If every­one does a small bit then that amounts to a lot get­ting done.’

He said that the group meets for a clean-up on the sec­ond Satur­day of ev­ery month and that even the odd hour here and there would be grate­fully re­ceived even if peo­ple can’t come for the full thing or can’t make it ev­ery month.

Philip added that some peo­ple have started to bring their chil­dren along to set them a good ex­am­ple and to en­cour­age them to keep the coast lit­ter-free in years to come.

‘If enough peo­ple come out we will make a dif­fer­ence,’ he said. ‘The coast­line at Bray and Grey­stones is al­ready vastly im­proved.’ Philip re­marked that in the last year, the group has col­lected close to 30 tonnes of waste.

They will meet this Satur­day from 12 mid­day to 3 p.m. to tackle what he re­ferred to as a ‘moun­tain’ of cans. They hope that the pub­lic will come out en-masse to lend a hand. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Philip on (087) 2627806 or email bray­coast­care­group@ya­hoo.com.
