Great turnout for national April spring clean up in Kildare town

Volunteers came out in force to help clean up the town last week

Kildare Town Tidy Towns kicked off National Spring Clean Up month on Saturday, April 5.

The meet up took place at the Heritage Centre in Market Square as part of the National Spring Clean Up for the month of April.
Gloves, bags, and pickers were all provided and there was a great turnout on the day.

Tea and coffee were available upstairs in the Heritage Centre for all of those who made the effort and helped out on the day.
It was held as part of the An Taisce National Spring Clean The volunteers will meet every Saturday at 10am outside Kildare Town Heritage Centre throughout April for National Spring Clean month.

Although they meet every week, April is National Spring Clean month and they would welcome all people who wish to volunteer.

Anti-litter initiative, National Spring Clean takes place during the whole month of April and now in its 21st year.
The campaign encourages every sector of society to actively participate and take responsibility for litter, by actually conducting clean ups in their own local environment.

National Spring Clean has been operated by An Taisce since 1999 in partnership with the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government and Kildare County Council.

There is a weekly clean every Saturday in Kildare from now on at 10am meeting outside Kildare Town Heritage Centre.
All are welcome to join in and help keep Kildare Town Tidy.
