On Saturday last the 17th November Edgeworthstown Tidy Towns and Edgeworthstown Foroige teamed up to do a town clean up. If you’re not familiar with Foroige and what they do you can read more about them here.  They are basically a Youth organisation and it was great to have them involved in the clean up.  Despite the cold wet miserable weather there were fourteen or fifteen young people and their group leaders that turned up the help pick up littler around the town. Nine bags of rubbish were picked up, not all full, but still a reminder of just how casual people are about getting rid of waste. The Tidy Town’s committee would like to thank Foroige for getting involved and we hope to repeat this in the new year. Anyone else from around the town that would like to get involved can contact Tom Dooley, Tom Victory or Brian Smith. A little bit of pride in our community goes a long way.
