Clean up Clontarf Weekend!

19 Apr 2012

This Saturday, April 21st sees two community initiatives in action in an effort to keep Clontarf clean for us all. 

First off is the third of the Street Clean Up operations. This is the combined initiative involving the Clontarf Business Association, thestreet cleaning haddon stiles victoria Clontarf Residents’ Association, Dublin City Council and local residents on the respective roads.  It follows on the from the success of the two previous operations, and this time the roads involved are:

  • The Stiles Road
  • Haddon Road
  • Victoria Road

If you are a resident on these roads, you need to note the following:

  • You will need to move your car off the road for 2 hours from 10:45am
  • Even if the road sweeper has passed your house, you should still leave the space clear as they may do more than one drive past.
  • For best results, you should sweep debris from the path outside your home onto the road so that the sweeper can gather it. Ideally, this should be done that morning or the night before if you are not going to be there on the day.
  • Key contacts for this phase are Donna Cooney 083 3317190 and David Doran (CBA) 086 2482863

Secondly, the Bull Island Clean Up Volunteer group are meeting for their monthly beach cleanup. They are a group of volunteers who meet on the third week of every month, and they are always looking for addtional volunteers.  This Saturday, the meet details are as follows:

Meeting time:   11.00am

Its a great way to get some exercise and fresh sea air, while getting involved in an event to improve the community.  The weather forecast for Saturday is for cloudy weather with scattered showers, mild westerly winds and temperatures ranging from 3-11 C.

The Bull Island Action Group advise that high tide will be at 11:41am on Saturday, and they advise all volunteers to dress appropriately for the two hours.

Well done to all involved in these initiaitives....
