Emyvale Tidy Towns News 23/06/20 There is a Community Litter Pick this Saturday, 27th June, from 11-1pm. Despite there being no National Competition this year the committee and friends have swung into action again. So far two very successful litter picks were organised at the end of April and May. The second one had over twenty people, from primary school children to pensioners, helping out with all roads and lanes cleaned in record time. Meet at the Leisure Centre at 11am this Saturday if you have an hour to spare and litter pickers and bags will be provided. Also wanted at the same time are people to help with a further Riverside Clean Up by cutting shrubs and clearing growth along the river. Bring heavy gloves and clippers for this job please. Several people with a trailer will be there. At a committee meeting on the 11th of June a new subcommittee was initiated. The new Floral Committee will identify areas that need planting, and select and plant flowers and shrubs. They hope to meet with Monaghan County Council Horticultural Officer very soon to learn more about pollinator plants and get ideas. Anyone can help with the Floral Committee and you do not have to attend meetings! Just give your name and contact number to Brenda Fields McKenna, Mary Flynn, Patricia Ryan or any Tidy Towns member and they will let you know when there is gardening work going on. On Saturday, June 13th, eleven volunteers headed to the bridge area for a great couple hours of work. One group tackled the overgrowth and rubbish in the Millrace beside the Riverside Bar. The ground was completely dry, affording a great chance to do a thorough job. Several trailer loads of material were taken away revealing the surprisingly wide Millrace at that point. A second group focused on the Flower Beds at the Bridge. Old plants were removed and a new selection of annuals planted. Two pollinator plants have been added and that will be an important feature criteria for future planting. The Community Employment staff cleaned out and planted up the bridge containers and strimmed around the Fisherman and Prince Edward Island plaque. At the Top of the Village weeding and watering has been going on in and around the allotments. The seating area with the pump looks inviting and the tiered planters are flourishing. The four heavy black tubs by the Farm Shop were planted with orange carpet roses and annuals.
The Tidy Towns Committee and the Floral Committee are to be commended for the terrific work they are doing in enhancing our surroundings and cleaning up the area. But it should not be left completely to them as we all share the area and so the responsibility to keep the place clean, tidy and safe. It also is important to give a good impression to all who travel through the village and to demonstrate a pride of place. So why not turn out at the Leisure Centre on Saturday at 11.00am and give a hand. Not only will you enjoy the experience but you will get great satisfaction from helping out.
