New railings

Our new railings have been started – they add a nice new look to this part of the town. They are built in sections – if one gets damaged it can be repaired/replaced – looking forward to seeing these finished and the new seats installed to complete the job.

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.
