Environmental Group

Dog poo on our streets, our public areas and especially on the top of the bank is an ongoing problem. It is offensive to people who enjoy an otherwise pleasant experience while out walking. It is also a health hazard to our Volunteers in the Environment Group and our Community Employment staff who run the gauntlet of getting “splattered” while cutting grass with strimmers and mowers. We appeal to all dog owners to clean up after their dogs business and allow us to enjoy our walks and our work!

Following the recent National Spring Cleaning Day, the Group wish to thank AES for their provision of the skip and wheelie bins for the day, the volunteers for giving of their time, Dom Sheil for driving to the various collection points to pick up the waste, the Community Centre Committee for providing the refreshments afterwards, An Taisce and Wexford County Council (Environment Section).

On Sunday the 5th May the Group will be raising much needed funds through a 5km-sponsored walk. (starting at the Community Centre) Sponsorship cards are available from our Secretary Vera Fox (087-2162146). Your support would be much appreciated and allow the Group to continue to work to improve our environment.

Monday 13th May a talk on Composting, Water Conservation and Waste Management by Ms. Cliona Connolly (Wexford County Council Environment Section) will be taking place at 8pm in the Railway Social Club
