One Million Trees initiative we would like people to come and join us and bring your own picnic! Trees can also be sponsored for loved ones or family names, plus there will be a Tidy Towns raffle on the day. Please support.Grenagh Tidy Towns would like to thank everyone who was out over the weekend for the start of National Spring Clean Month. Teams were out from early morning and we had designated different areas for picking. Grenagh Macra Team took on one of the litter black spots and did terrific work.

This year we contacted all the food take-away outlets within a 10-mile radius of our village and McDonalds Drivethru in Blackpool responded, and sent four staff out to help us with our pick, which was greatly appreciated.

One skip of rubbish was collected by Cork County Council for disposal, with several bags of recycling also included. We hope everyone could see the difference from this activity and will continue to support the efforts of Grenagh Tidy Towns.
