On Saturday morning last the Mallow Tidy Towns team continued improving the derelict area at the Bridge St / Park Road site.
As well as picking up five bags of litter along the Park Road, they made progress with the painting of the railings and hope to finish it off next Saturday. Their efforts were assisted and encouraged greatly by Paul O'Connor, the owner of Crafted Fitted Furniture, who offered the Tidy Town members a very welcome cup of tea.
A load of gravel is expected to be delivered before next weekend and will need to be spread manually, so all help is welcome. The five tree planter boxes have been finished by Le Cheile Mallow Men's Shed and the trees have been ordered from Ken Joyce at Joyce's Garden Centre.
The Transition Year students of the Patrician Academy are aldo planning to do a litter pick along the River Walk next week. Sheelagh O'Shea, who is the Tidy Towns Liaison Officer with the secondary schools will be coordinating with them.
