PLENTY OF ‘HORSE SENSE’ USED TO CLEAN UP LOUGHSIDE COMMUNITY

first_imgThe last load of rubbish collected at Loughside.The residents of the Loughside Community were out in force yesterday with a massive cleanup operation taking place in the townlands between Ramelton and Letterkenny.More than 100 residents again took to the roads and streets of the Loughside to clear the area of rubbish and litter.Loughside residents met at a number of prearranged meeting points at 10:30am and townland area coordinators managed the clean up in their respective Townland areas. We can’t skip over this load of rubbish!The residents spent two hours lifting rubbish and litter before meeting in the Silver Tassie at 1pm for a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits, kindly sponsored by the Ciaran and Rose Blaney. The collection equipment, bags, gloves, high viz vests and the collection Skip were all provided by Donegal County Council.Loughside Community PRO Tom Higgins said “This was our second year organising a clean-up day and we were delighted with the turn out. It was a very worthwhile exercise and the residents of Loughside Community should be extremely proud of themselves.“We had boys and girls, Mammies and Daddies and a few Grannies and Granddad’s all lending a helping hand. The rubbish lifted included crisp bags, bottles, fast food boxes, old traffic cones, a gas cylinder, an ironing board, a lorry tyre, a TV, an old bicycle, a car bumper and a few old political candidate posters. We filled the skip that was provided and two additional trailers. Tom Giblin kindly brought along his Shetland pony and cart to entertain the children and as it seems some of the adults too”.The Loughside Community would again like to thank Martin Roarty and the Waste Department of Donegal County Council for the support and the Silver Tassie for providing the tea coffee and biscuits. A special word of thanks must also go to Hugo Callan, Tom McMullan, Tom Giblin, Kieran Sweeney, Conor Crossan, John Murphy and Tom Higgins who all provided their cars, vans and trailers to transport the rubbish.PLENTY OF ‘HORSE SENSE’ USED TO CLEAN UP LOUGHSIDE COMMUNITY was last modified: April 28th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:clean-upletterkennyLoughside communityRameltonrubbishlast_img
