Allin Institute Garden gets a facelift!

May 23, 2009

We have been hard at work in the garden outside the Allin Institute.  We have pruned back the shrubs and have painted the benches.  We hope this work has been appreciated.

Is Eircom bust?

May 23, 2009

We (Bandon Tidy towns) write endless letters and we make endless phone calls but all in vain!  The Eircom exchange is on the main approach road into Bandon and looks terrible.  We can’t even convince the powers that be to give it a power wash.  So this leads me to believe that Eircom is bust.  Incidentally, this building is managed by Eircom in Waterford so is it ‘Out of sight and out of mind??????’

Check out the photo in case you have missed it!

Annual Bandon Spring Clean

May 19, 2009
The National Spring Clean is Ireland’s largest anti litter campaign which takes place in April. We do our bit each year by encouraging the community in Bandon to help us to remove unsightly litter from around the town.

Full marks this year go to Laragh National School pupils who, in spite of poor weather, tackled the town park and even hauled a supermarket trolley from one of the streams. Well done also to the brownies and guides and to the presentation boys and girls primary schools who all did a superb job cleaning up.

Bandon Tidy Towns

May 19, 2009

We are a group of about 20 volunteers who meet every Tuesday evening at 7pm at Hartes Car Park in Bandon from March until October.  Our aim is to improve the quality of our surroundings which means that we tackle a wide range of projects – painting, litter picking, planting, watering, weeding etc etc.  Feel free to join us as we are always looking for volunteers.  Just pitch up any Tuesday evening – even if only for one evening in the season.
