New public seating sites in Newbridge town have been praised by the town's Tidy Towns group.
Newbridge Tidy Towns Association (NTTA) shared the locations of the benches in a Facebook post, where it said: "Lovely to see the new public seating positioned at selected sites in Newbridge over the past week or so."
"Two benches sponsored by Newbridge Access Group & Kildare County Council have been provided:
One near St. Conleth’s Parish Church in the shade of the Convent’s Horse Chestnut Tree;
One against the old barracks wall on Military Road opposite the Athgarvan Junction just up from the Water Tower;
Two further benches sponsored by Rotary Club of Newbridge have been provided:
One on the Station Road outside Newbridge Sports & Leisure Centre;
One on a hard-standing area in LHD Parklands overlooking the lake & its wildlife."
"All (sites are) located in sunny open positions – well done to all involved."
It added that the new benches, which were specially located with disabled people in mind, were supported by a number of groups, including: Newbridge Access Group, the Rotary Club of Newbridge, Kildare Community Stories and Kildare County Council.
