Grange Clean Up
A Spring Clean of Grange & District Area has been organised for this coming Saturday, April 13, from 9.30am until 11.30 am. This is part of the National Spring Clean which is supported by Louth County Council. The support of all local residents is requested. Children must be supervised by adults during the clean-up and volunteers must wear protective clothing and gloves. It is hoped that following the clean-up, road users will refrain from dropping litter which looks unsightly and is also a health hazzard. Louth County Council Litter Wardens will be active in the area during the coming months and offenders will be prosecuted.
