Lord Mayor Appreciation Night May 8th

Congratulations to Ken Murphy, Brian Callinan and Erica Bodnare who were nominated by their peers for special recognition by the Lord Mayor among the Canal Volunteers. See photo attached. Ken has rejuvenated the group with representing us on various committees, snaffling equipment (legally), coming up with initiatives like seed-bombs (coming soon!) and generally inspiring others with his drive. Brian and Erica took the initiative to organise the hugely successful Liffey Walk, working on our action plan. thanks to them and as always to all the volunteers  who take part in whatever way in our activities. THere are other ways to spend free time but that you choose to help out in your own area is very praiseworthy. Hopefully we have all made some friends among our neighbours along the way.lordmayorapprecationnight

Next canal cleanup May 19th meeting 9.45am BERA Hall, photos from last cleanup

Hello all,

Next Cleanup May 19th 10am Canal
After a hugely successful Canal Action Day cleanup last month – see below – we are back on the canal on Saturday April 19th. Meeting at 9.45 for 10am start at the BERA Hall. This meeting slightly earlier worked well the last time as we were able to plan better where people could go. If you are able to make it by that time please let us know because it makes it easier to assign people to places if we know what the final numbers might be. Tea and buns afterwards as ever.
(Next month – June 16th – we will be back at the village cleanup)
Canal Action Day Cleanup last month
this was a huge success with more than 30 volunteers collecting two huge piles of rubbish, one at the Blackhorse end and one at the BERA Hall. Thanks so much to those who turned out. People have remarked how the canal – especially near reeds – stayed clean for much longer afterwards and we really think we made a dent in the long term rubbish situation. Photos attached as well as a lovely message from the Canal Action group summarising all that was achieved.
