Tidy Towns 2.
There may be no Tidy Towns national competition this year due to Covid19 but that does not discourage Tidy Towns committees from carrying on enhancing and development works in their towns and villages and the Emyvale Tidy Towns committee are busy doing just that in their area of operation. Saturday, June 27th was a wet miserable day but even that did not prevent their monthly Clean-up from taking place and a good number of dedicated and interested volunteers, young and older, turned out with the committee to gather litter, prune bushes, remove debris, and check the flower beds and displays. The Mill Race, which is the feeder river for Emy Lake, from which the Glaslough and Emyvale water schemes draw their water, is badly in need of attention and the committee has begun clearing and cleaning along its banks and river bed but there is a distance to go yet and this will be on the agenda for the next Clean-up. This is important work for the area as it is best to make sure that the water entering the Lake is the best quality possible and then it will take less to clean it before it is pumped out to households. The old saying goes -’many hands make light work’ and more hands would certainly assist the committee reach the targets it has set to improve and enrich our area this year, Of course a donation to the committee would be welcomed. Below we have some pictures of some of the volunteers at work despite the downpours.
