TIDY TOWN NOTES

A huge ef­fort has been made over the past months to have the vil­lage and ap­proach roads look­ing well. A num­ber of men have been do­ing hard work trim­ming the verges and ditches on the road to­wards Glen­dalough over a num­ber of evenings and it looks very well. The ex­ist­ing flower beds have been ti­died up in the vil­lage and a new one has been cre­ated be­hind the bus shel­ter. Work is on­go­ing to have sig­nage in the vil­lage ti­died up too. A pic­nic bench has been do­nated by Wes­ley Atkin­son, Parks and Wildlife and is po­si­tioned on the Glen­dalough side of the Green op­po­site Lyn­hams. Tim De­lamere has pre­pared a tem­plate of planned in­scrip­tions to be put on the gran­ite stones and this to be ap­proved by the coun­cil prior to place­ment. On June 19, fifth and sixth class from Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa vis­ited the vil­lage com­mu­nity gar­den to see what is planted there and on their way also col­lected any rub­bish that was around. Res­i­dents con­tinue to keep rub­bish picked up around their homes and this in turn en­cour­ages vis­i­tors to bring their lit­ter home or to use the bins in the vil­lage. The work is on­go­ing but on the first Tues­day of each month ev­ery­one is en­cour­aged to meet across from Lyn­hams at 7.30 p.m. to clean up and plan any fur­ther im­prove­ments.
