May 8, 2013 0

The Balbriggan Tidy Towns team have once again enhanced their secondary schools ‘Contact’ project. Last week various classes in Ardgillan College undertook daily clean-ups in the residential areas surrounding their school.

The tidy Towns team helped by providing gloves, litter pickers and high visibility jackets. Many residents commented positively about the daily cleanups and commented ‘its great to see the young people volunteering and looking after the local environment’.


On Monday 29th April the Loreto College hosted a member of the Tidy Towns team Zoe Nelson, who gave a class on volunteering and stewardship. The class are completing their CSPE project and had undertaken a fund raising event for the Tidy Towns cause.

The previous week the Sixth years from Balbriggan Community College, who have now helped with a number of out door projects, undertook a beach clean up under the supervision of volunteers Telly O’Reilly and Alex McCullagh.

Joe Troy the Chairman of Balbriggan Tidy Towns commented ‘ When we started this secondary schools ‘Contact’ project late last year we never thought we would have so much on-going positive activity involving all three secondary schools in Balbriggan, it is truly encouraging, well done to all the teachers and students’.
