Clonmellon Tidy Towns Newsletter
"We have entered our village into the Tidy Towns Competition for the first time since 2009, This is a competition that should inspire our community to pull together and for all to play their part in getting our village ready for judging day. Being a volunteer allows individuals to practice their passion for the good of their community. This could be landscaping, built environment, sustainable living, local wildlife or organizing a litter pick up. We have a lot of work to do and some of the projects we want to undertake will require some time to complete. We are confident that we can meet these challenges as a group and as a community."
We have plans to do the following
- Tidy up all plant / flower arrangements
- Introduce new bedding / plant arrangements
- Have 2 new welcome signs made
- Have a pollinator garden (up at the industrial estate)
- Have Clean Up weekends / weekdays
- Build a new feature at the entrance to the village from the Kells road.
- Have a community garden
Please Clean Up After Your Dog
This is a big problem all around our village and housing estate’s.
People need to stop and think before they take their dog out for a walk. Our
children walk on our street play in our green areas and this is what they
are playing in, so please clean up after your dog. There is a 3,000 fine
for those who let their dog foul on the streets and green areas, we will
report dog owners who continue to let their dog dirty our footpaths
and green areas.
Under Section 22 of the Litter Pollution Act 1997 it is an offence to allow a dog under your control to foul a public place. This means the owner or person in charge of the dog is required to remove dog faeces and dispose of them in a suitable, sanitary manner.
