Buttevant tidy towns' committee is currently on an antidog-fouling campaign as part of their agend to make the town more presentable for locals and potential tourist visitors. Credit must go to Tom Casey who is ever diligent with his twice daily litter-pick and goes about his voluntary duties unassumingly.
Perhaps, when the weather gets a little better climatically, there will be a resumption of a fuller programme of litter cleaning, planting and general clean-up. The local transition year class from Colaiste Mhuire are to be commended highly for their weekly cleanup campaign.
Buttevant Community Council of Muintir na Tire, is up-grading it's campaign in highlighting the condition of Buttevant's Main Street and footpaths.
Some officers of the community council met recently with government minister, Sean Sherlock,T. D., to update him with the necessary work needed to be carried out within the town and also to ask him to convey these requirements to the necessary government ministers and departments.
Other items discussed included the volume of traffic through the town and the measures needed to be taken for the safety of the general public. The up-grading of the broad band service to the Buttevant area was also discussed.
The minister assured those present that he will do all that he can to help rectify the necessary requirements and will return ,in due course, with the results of his findings.
Cork County Councillor, Ronan Sheehan, Mallow, was also present, as was local councillor Tom Sheahan. The resulting findings will be made known to the public when they come to hand. Your support for the campaigns of Buttevant Community Council will be greatly appreciated.
The weekly bingo session continues on Monday night in the local G.A.A hall with numerous monetary prizes to be won by some lucky punters. There are also many draws and raffles to be partaken in during the evening's entertainment.
Next weeks' bingo jackpot will be worth €2550 and there will also be an "inhouse lottery" and "winning line" games to be played for. Weather conditions will also determine the holding of the weekly bingo session.
Buttevant Brass Band is resuming rehearsals on alternate Saturday nights' for forthcoming events. Members will meet on this Saturday night, Febraury 2, for an informal practice and a light hearted get-together. All members are requested to attend and former members will also be welcomed.
With the possibility of Buttevant losing its on street litter bins looming on the horizon, due to the continuous dumping of domestic rubbish in these litter facility, it would be a serious blow to the general clean appearance of the town.
The county council carried out a survey in the town in the recent past which showed that the amount of domestic rubbish found in the bins far out shone the amount of and type of litter that these bins were provided for.
It would be a tragedy to loose such a necessary and worthwhile facility, because of the mindless work of a select few. We should appreciate the facilities provided within the town, which are put in place for the benefit of the community, and the clean appearance of the town.
