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.

Anti Litter Competition

The Anti Litter Competition for 2017 is beginning on

Monday 8th May 2017. T hat is this coming Monday. As you are all aware I am sure, Millstreet Town won 1st Prize in Category A. So will we make it 2 in a row. I reckon we can do that no bother. So grab your sweeping brushes, shovels, gloves and bin bags and as always get out and clean, clean, clean. The evenings are only fab all this week so no excuses. Why not rope in a couple of the neighbours on your street and make a right good go of it. You will be done in no time. I will post the schedule of the particular areas that will judged just as soon as I get them. Any groups or any volunteers that would like help or a loan of equipment for their litter pick up please do not hesitate to contact me here on the page and I will sort out gear for you.  Fingers crossed we will be top notch again this year.

untitled (299 x 531)Drum roll please…. First round results are in for the Litter Challenge 2016 are in. I am absolutely delighted and so proud to announce that Millstreet are first with a result of 992.3.

This is  a massive achievement, if this momentum can be kept going there is no reason why Millstreet should not place first place for the entire Litter Challenge.

So keep up the good work everybody, the next judging period began  Monday 23rd May to Wednesday 1st June with particular focus on Murphy’s Terrace. Remember just a little makes a huge difference, even something as little as tidying up outside your front garden makes a huge difference.

Thank You & Well Done

Tmc1 (600 x 337)Team Millstreet Clean-Up was  a massive success this morning. This is all down to the many volunteers that started yesterday evening and were still going @ 4pm this afternoon. All approach roads into Millstreet have been cleaned. Some of the back roads have also been done. Tullig to Aubane was cleaned last week. Tanyard Wood residents were also out in force this morning also. It warms the heart to see such a fantastic community spirit alive and well in Millstreet. We were also joined today by Cllr. Mellissa Mullane and her daughter, whom were out picking litter with the rest of the crew from 10am this morning. Fair Play. Also Mayor of Cork County, John Paul O’Shea joined us and did his bit and then Derry Sheehan, our fearless leader gave him a tour of our fair town and all it has to offer. There was a massive amount of work done this morning, everybody should be very proud of themselves young and old that turned up to give a helping hand this morning. This is a great start to the year. This also places us in a good position heading into the Anti Litter Competition which will be starting soon. Also when all the morning crew were gone home and feet up, I caught a glimpse of the town footpaths being swept this evening by some of the local business’. Really proud of Millstreet Community Spirit that was shown today. Lets keep it going.
