10.30 am on Sat 23rd April – Group Clean up…..

April is now officially ‘National Spring Clean” month and this year the Committee have decided that rather than just having one day for our Annual Estate Clean Up we will hold it over one week, from Saturday 23rd April to Saturday 30th.

We will kick-off as usual and meet at the post-box at the entrance to the estate at
10.30 am on Sat 23rd April and would appreciate help from as many people as possible. It is expected to take no more than two hours. The objective will be to pick up rubbish, small twigs/branches, some light pruning. Gloves, pickers and bags will be provided.

This group will concentrate on common areas of the estate but it is hoped that individuals or small groups of residents from specific roads will come together either on that day or during the Clean-Up Week to focus on their own houses and also help elderly neighbours who are not in the position to do this work themselves. One item which would make a major difference to how the estate looks, is if each resident would ensure the edges of their grass verges are neatly trimmed and that all dead leaves under the footpath hedges are removed.

So during this special Spring Clean Week, create a community spirit, remove any litter that you see lying around and put it in your own bin. If you are organising a small clean-up group and wish to avail of some special DLRCC litter bags, contact a member of the Committee and we will try to facilitate you from a limited quantity which we have.
