Latest Laois News: Abbeyleix, Durrow & Cullohill communities’ very successful litter pick
THREE COMMUNITIES LITTER PICK:
On Saturday March 6th Durrow Tidy Towns in conjunction with Abbeyleix and Cullahill Tidy Towns and both local GAA clubs held a litter pick with all social distancing guidelines adhered to. A huge amount of litter was removed from the roadside along the N77/R639 routes.
Special thanks to all our volunteers and to Bloom Coffee for supplying teas and coffees on the day, Laois Hire for sponsoring the litter picking sign and Oliver Stanley for taking the Tyres for recycling, also thanks to Abbeyleix Manor and Cllr JJ Fennelly for all their help in Abbeyleix and to Bergin’s in Cullohill and all volunteers there too. Thanks also Suzanne in Laois Federation of Tidy Towns and to Laois County Council for supplying litter bags, gloves, litter pickers and for collection of rubbish from the Litter pick. A special thanks too to Fred Townsend from Durrow Tidy Towns who organised this event.
Also great to see that Mountmellick Tidy Towns also got on board on the day. Well done everyone! Litter picking happens constantly in the background by all Tidy Towns Groups on a daily basis, it’s not seen but it happens and is carried out by a huge community of volunteers. The day was about getting adjoining communities involved. Well done to everyone!
