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.
