Time for Planting

Millstreet Tidy Town Association relies solely on the grants from Funds, Sponsorship and the kindness of strangers of course. We really love it when we get a phone from a sponsor to call down and collect bedding plants. Pictured is Manager of O’Keeffe’s Supervalu Millstreet presenting Noreen Dennehy, representative of Millstreet Tidy Town Association, collecting the bedding plants. There are over 1500 bedding plants that will be used in various planting projects in the town. Noreen and her team will be busy planting over the next number of days, if anyone would like to help Noreen with the planting please contact here on the page or on our facebook page. We are always looking for helping hands.

Team Millstreet Clean Up

Well fair play lads we had a mighty turnout, and the beautiful weather I promised was there. Seriously there was an amount of work done on Saturday morning. Pictured is just some of the volunteers that helped out from The Square. Below in Tanyard Wood, Beatty was running a very tight ship. The town is looking spic and span guys, just in time heading into the Anti Litter Challenge which will be commencing on 14th of May. Details will be announced later. Again sincere thanks to all who came and helped out and especially John Paul O’Shea. Always great to see at least one of elected representative willing to give a hand. Thanks also to Cork County Council for supplying the bags, pickers and gloves.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Recycling has become a way of life for us all these days and rightly so. The footprint we leave behind today is for our children. We all try to do our best but it can be confusing with so many materials out there. Repak have developed a handy guide for recycling tips for households on their website. Detailing the most common materials that can be recycle. Rember to wash and dry out all materials before they are put in the recycle bin.
