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.

Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

 

Millstreet Tidy Town Association is always looking for a helping hand. This year alone we will spend over €10000. There is a lot of work that goes on that people don’t realise that it done on a voluntary basis and with a very limited fund. Essentially we don’t have one and rely totally on Grants received and very kind donations. This year is a particularly tough as we need to replace some rather expensive pieces of equipment, such as the Lawnmower which can cost up to €2000. Strimmers also. There is also the cost of seed for Herlihy’s, which in fairness to our volunteers is looking superb and will look even more so when we plant the wildflower seed which will cost in excess of €100. In short we are looking for Sponsors. Whether it is an individual or a local company or business, please we are asking for your help. We are very lucky with our current sponsors  and very appreciative of their support. The fact remains the entire town benefits from the work of Millstreet Tidy Town. Last year alone, Millstreet Town won 1st in the Anti Litter Competition, Bronze Medal in the Tidy Town Competition 2016, ran workshops with both of the Primary Schools and also the secondary school and Millstreet Tidy Town Association was the driving force behind all these.  Any individual, Local Company or Local Business that would like to discuss some form of sponsorship please do not hesitate to contact here on the website. Via email millstreettidytown@gmail.com, Via Facebook and you can speak to myself and I can give you details. All donations are gratefully accepted. Here’s to an even more successful 2017.

A Massive Thanks

It is without doubt that the Millstreet Tidy Town Association could not continue its work throughout the town without the help and support of the local community. That is why we would like to take this opportunity to thank Liam Flynn for his kind donation of Daffodil Bulbs last year, so this spring we are greeted with a beautiful carpet of yellow daffodils on the approach roads into Millstreet Town. As always anybody who would like to help us out is more than welcome. Contact us on this page, email, Facebook or twitter.

Millstreet Community School


  

Once again this year our resident Wildlife Biologist Tony Keneally is continuing his Bio Diversity work with the Transition Years of Millstreet Community School. We are very lucky to have Tony to help us in this regard. Not only is very beneficial to us in our National Tidy Town campaign each year, the students are benefitting from Tony’s knowledge and expertise. They are continuing work that was started years previous on habitats surrounding the school and also this year there will be a Bio Diversity Information night held by the Transition Year Students in the Millstreet Secondary school on 30th March. Details of this are to follow at a later date. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony and Derry Morley and all the staff at Millstreet Community School with whom this project could not continue.
