The Cahir Tidy Towns groups are hoping for some better weather ahead as they want to plant some fresh flowers in the beds. The wet weather has caused the Marigolds to rot in the ground and have all bar a few died.
The wall at Hogan Square is looking well since Gerry and Dave completed the job on it last week. These lads are on a TUS scheme and do great work for Tidy Towns.
Last weekend was a busy weekend with extra people around for the Horse Trials and fair play to everyone that go out walking with a small bag in their hand for litter.
The soccer club have trimmed the bed at their entrance and looks a lot tidier and some painting of bins is welcome also.
We will be applying for a new three-year town plan over the coming weeks to see where we can improve into the years ahead and we are also looking at a memorial garden at the sides of the steps to the Dovecote. We will be having a launch day where anyone wanting to remember a deceased member of their family who may be laid to rest outside of town can come and lay a shrub in their memory. This will be a permanent bed and shrubs will be available for different spots in the bed. A plan will have to be drawn up for the area and some ground works complete before we get to that stage. We will advertise accordingly them and if there are 60 or 70 shrubs to be put in we will take a first come first serve basis.
So it’s still a busy time ahead for tidy towns and please be vigilant over the coming weeks.
Thanks also to Kevin Dalton for his contribution to the group. Thanks to David Tegerdine who came to the rescue with a donation of plants to re-do the flower beds in the Square that had been destroyed with the bad weather.
