Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A num­ber of res­i­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tions were pre­sented with cheques to sup­port the up­keep of green and com­mon ar­eas within their es­tates by mem­bers of the Balt­in­glass Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict last Thursday.

The eight or­gan­i­sa­tions had ap­plied for fund­ing from the Es­tate De­vel­op­ment Fund­ing 2019 for Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tions and Es­tate De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tees of Wick­low County Coun­cil So­cial Hous­ing Es­tates ear­lier in the year.

Moun­tain View Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, Beech­wood Drive Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, Derry Drive Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, Mal­ton Park Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, Bal­ly­con­nell Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, Mill­bank Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, Cool­boy and Dis­trict Tidy Towns and Kil­com­mon View Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, which are all in the Tinahely en­gi­neer­ing area, re­ceived cheques dur­ing the event at Mur­phy’s Ho­tel in Tinahely.

In a statement, Wick­low County Coun­cil said it ‘recog­nises Res­i­dent As­so­ci­a­tions as a pos­i­tive move­ment which en­ables peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate and play an ac­tive role in mak­ing their com­mu­nity a bet­ter place. This an­nual fund­ing scheme is to ac­knowl­edge the work of these vol­un­tary com­mit­tees who self­lessly give their time to the ben­e­fit of their com­mu­nity.’
