Emyvale Tidy Towns News The monthly Community Litter Pick for February was held on Saturday, 27th February, from 11am-1pm in the village, surrounding roads, housing estates and at Emy Lake. Bags and Pickers were available outside the Leisure Centre and committee members were about to assist where needed. In the couple of weeks since the previous Litter pick a huge amount of rubbish has gathered in a number of areas and it did not take long to fill bag after bag of the litter. There has to be a number of people who care little for the environment when so much is just tossed into the hedge or thrown from cars onto the roadway or where ever they happen to be. One would wonder if they do that at their own homes? Anyway the volunteers did their best to remove as much as possible and we thank then for giving of their time and facing the elements to do this community work and I’m sure there would have been more volunteers were it not for Covid. Perhaps you would consider offering your services for the next Litter Pick. It is not strenuous or demanding and you can give half an hour or two hours if you wish. If you do help out you are doing a big favour for your community and a bigger favour for the Environment. Our images show some of the volunteers today and also a portion of the huge stack of full bags which the volunteers returned with. The word ‘disgusting’ comes to mind. The Tidy Towns committee wishes to thank all who turned out today and a big thank you to Martina Flood at PJD Safety Supplies for supplying the new Tidy Towns HiVis.
