Planters

It was a week of planters this week with the new tree planters arriving in town on Wednesday morning – courtesy of Town Development and Longford County Council and on Wednesday evening replacing the old with the new – new plants (purchased from the Manor Garden) planted in the concrete plant holders in the Green.

Various Projects

We have had some various projects going on over the past few weeks – cleanup around the mart, hanging baskets being put up, tidy up of planted area on the Castlepollard road and plants at the Maria Edgeworth statue. A big thank you to all who contributed flowers and work to the hanging baskets and all our volunteers.

Dublin Road – Planted area

We recently gave a revamp and update to a planted area on the Dublin Road that needed freshening up – we had some great help out for the couple of days it took but it’s looking well and as the year goes on we hope it will start to look even better. Photos by John McGerr and John Cahill.

Spring Clean 2017

A big thank you to all who came out to help today(and earlier in the week) with our Annual Spring Clean. As usual we found tonnes of stuff on the highways and byways. A word of thanks too to Gary Brady and Longford County Council for supplying pickers, bags and gloves. Ciaran Callaghan supplied the skip, which we managed to pack full.

Hedgehog dens

Today we put up a couple of hedgehog dens  to assist hedgehogs in the area- to read more about hedgehogs – visit this site https://animalcorner.co.uk/animals/hedgehog/
