Well, January 2021 certainly arrived with a bang: heavy and prolonged rain over five days and extremely cold temperatures. This month we are proud to say our Maintenance Scheme has it’s 9th anniversary! We’re sure the homeowners on ‘C’ Sector North agree it’s made a huge difference to our streets: The roads are tidy, potholes repaired, verges gravelled and planted, green skips available for all our garden waste and all dustbins off the roads. It’s lovely to walk around a well kept area which is no longer neglected, but it has taken many hours every week of hard work by our Team. This will not continue without each loyal Member – Please, if you haven’t considered joining we ask you to get in touch? The small amount of 15 Euros every quarter (equivalent to a cup of coffee each week) means the benefit to our area is huge. We’d also like to ask once more; if you have a pet, please clear up after it and keep our area pleasant and poo free, thanks. Green Fingers’ work continues into 2021: During a month of dampness and extremely cold temperatures, our Maintenance Team weeded, cleaned, swept and sprayed the sector with pet-friendly weedkiller, removed mud and debris after the heavy rains, pruned and moved overgrown plants and temporarily repaired a large hole in the perimeter road.

Our Wednesday volunteers, weeded, planted plants, pruned trees and cleared scrub. Huge thanks to them all for coming out in the cold and damp. We welcome new volunteer Jackie and returning volunteer Matt but we’re still looking for volunteers: there are free bacon sarnies every Wednesday morning as an incentive! Please contact John our Chairman, on 634 325 427.

Please check chalkboards & our Facebook groups for more information.
