An enormous amount of sweeping, cleaning and tidying has taken place in the past week around the town, by both Tidy Towns Volunteers, and the Community Employees and this will continue on Wednesday nights throughout the Summer by Tidy Towns Volunteers, and the Community Employees will be out in various areas on Friday mornings.
Scuffling, spraying, and pruning has been done and it’s now time for planting all the baskets and containers again to add much more colour to our town for all of us to admire and enjoy throughout the Summer months. Roscrea Tidy Towns are always recruiting new members so we are issuing an open invitation to anyone who would like to come out and join us on Wednesday evening, or Saturday mornings, and help with planting, watering, feeding flowers, or generally keeping a check on litter, cigarette butts, coloured pens etc. disposed of outside your door, or nearby footpath. Any help you can give will be much appreciated. (Meet us in Rosemary Square on Wednesday evenings at 7pm and Saturday mornings at 10am) or any time during the day over the next few weeks.
Competition Entry forms
The Tidy Towns Application Form and the Tiobraid Álainn application have been prepared over the past two months, and a great year’s work has been compiled with before and after photographs, maps of the town, estates, projects, etc. prepared and submitted. This year with so much tree planting, the adjudicators will be visiting all estates, roads streets and back areas, so it is important in the interest of the town to keep all those areas up to a standard that we can be proud of and will impress the Adjudicators. Many projects such as the Library Field, the Coláiste Phobal Garden, the Railway Field, Gantly road etc. may not be complete when inspected, however they will be progressed throughout the Summer, and will be seen as work in progress. The ultimate for this year would have been to see all projects completed before the end of May, and we must now await another year.
Council Work – Gantly Road
We have all seen the progress in Gantly Road which has been transformed during the past few months, and is now almost ready for tree planting. Thanks must go to the Engineer and Council Staff for their work on this road, and screening off those unkept sites which we hope uses will be found for, and appropriate entrance gates erected now that the entrances have been opened up. All of this work should improve Roscrea’s mark under “the Tidiness category” and the “Roads, Streets and Back Areas”. “The Reward for Work Well done gives us the opportunity to do more” ; TÚS workers – Four very able and hard working men have been allocated to the Tidy Towns Committee thanks to N.T.L.P. and they are doing necessary tidying, painting, and pruning in all the Estates at the moment, and we look forward to much more painting being done throughout the year that they are now available to us.
