Drogheda Tidy Towns have been busy for the past two years in a number of areas from biodiversity to ensuring we retained our gold medal status for the 15th year in a row.
The group has also led the way in coordinating the response to our previous poor results in the IBAL (Irish Businesses Against Litter) survey where the town was designated as heavily littered and at the very bottom of the national league table.
Drogheda has now received two results marking the town as “Clean to European Norms” which is a massive leap in the rankings and one the group want to improve on again.
Speaking to DroghedaLife, Deputy Mayor and Tidy Towns Coordinator Kevin Callan said that the group have already began its Spring Clean Initiative and are out on weekends with volunteers and tying in with Louth County Council, Drogheda & District Chamber and Love Drogheda BIDS.
“Together we are all making a really positive impact and we are very lucky to have so many community volunteers in Drogheda who give their time.
"This weekend we are out again on Sunday morning and if you can give our town an hour of your time we will be all the better for it. We are meeting at the car park at St Dominicks Park beside the playground at 11am.
Supplies of gloves bags and litter pickers will be available. For more info please text or call me directly on 0871155366.
