Credit union spon­sors round­about

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS - By DEBORAH COLE­MAN

A NEW round­about spon­sor­ship deal has been signed at Arklow Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict.

The Knock­more round­about on the South side of Arklow is the fifth round­about to re­ceive cor­po­rate spon­sor­ship as part of an ini­tia­tive launched by Arklow Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict last year. Now, just three round­abouts in the town re­main to be spon­sored.

Lo­cal coun­cil­lors and of­fi­cials met with Tom Bren­nan, Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment & Mar­ket­ing Man­ager with Al­tura Credit Union Ltd to sign the con­tract in re­cent days.

Al­tura Credit Union Ltd’s com­mon bond spreads from South Bray to beyond Cur­r­a­cloe in County Wex­ford which makes it a nat­u­ral fit to spon­sor the round­about in Arklow. Also, Al­tura Credit Union Ltd’s new In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre opens in 10 Fer­ry­bank Arklow this week.

Since late 2016 a num­ber of round­abouts in Arklow Town have been spon­sored by the fol­low­ing busi­nesses from within the Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict: Bridge­wa­ter Shop­ping Cen­tre, Topline Bolands Arklow, Avoca River Park and Holfeld Plas­tics.

The scheme al­lows spon­sors to con­trib­ute to­wards the de­vel­op­ment and up­keep of round­abouts in the town.

In ex­change for spon­sor­ship, each suc­cess­ful spon­sor has their busi­ness ad­ver­tised on the round­about.

Cathaoir­leach Cllr Miriam Mur­phy said ‘This scheme of­fers an ex­cel­lent pro­mo­tional op­por­tu­nity for busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions pro­vid­ing the spon­sor­ship along with im­prov­ing the ap­pear­ance of the round­abouts for the town’. There are now five out of eight round­abouts spon­sored in Arklow Town.

Any busi­ness seek­ing fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on the three re­main­ing round­abouts can con­tact the of­fices of Arklow Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict on 0402 42700 or by email at Ark­lowMu­nic­i­palDistrict@ wick­low­
