This event is being organised by the Boyne Rivers Trust in collaboration with Trim and Drogheda Tidy Towns, Wild About Navan, the Gaelic Woodland Project, Sonairte and Councillor Elaine McGinty. The Local Authority Waters Programme (LAWPRO) and Meath County Council are also supporting the initiative.
Aoife McGrath, Community Water Officer for Counties Meath, and Kildare said: “We hope that everybody with an interest in their local river will take part in this exciting clean-up event as part of National Spring Clean. Please sign-up and join us at your local meeting point.
“It promises to be a brilliant day and will enable you to connect with your local community, help protect your local environment and help restore your local waterbody. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you on the day and we hope that you will join us!”
