Bandon’s Annual Spring Clean has commenced

April 14, 2010

Tidy town volunteers took to the streets of Bandon last evening (13th April 2010) and collected litter from St Patrick’s Quay, Ballymodan Place, the entrance to the Supervalu Shopping centre and along Chapel Street as far as the Poachers Inn.  A total of 16 sacks of litter were filled which is a huge number of bags considering that these areas are in the town centre.  We continue to beg people to put all litter in the bins around town.

Dead heading the Hydrangeas

April 10, 2010

We spent our first evening this season dead heading the hydrangeas planted on the approach road into the town.  These hydrangeas were all grown from cuttings many years ago and each year become more impressive as they mature.

Work continues with gusto

June 17, 2009

Volunteers have been hard at work this week.  Various tubs have been painted as have the benches in the playground.  Sadly graffitti appeared on one of the benches less than 24 hours after it was painted.  We are chasing up the CCTV.

The hydrangeas have now been weeded and the area behind strimmed.  We thank the FAS workers who helped us with this project.  The knotweed near the beds will be cleared within the next week.

The bed in Ball Alley Lane near the Hamilton High School has been weeded and we have planted begonias around the outside.  Sadly some of the geraniums have been stolen which is so frustrating for volunteers who spend hours of their time tending these plants.

Volunteers also cleared the wall and footpath near the Poachers Inn.  It was covered in weeds which were invading a well used walk along the Clon Road.

Our AGM will be held next Wednesday, 24th June at 7pm in the Plunkett Room of the Munster Arms hotel and will last no longer than 1 hour.
