For the first time in many years, a concerted effort is being made to improve our village’s appearance, and to enter the Tidy Towns competition – for which we need to be ready by 2 July.
The Kilfenora Tidy Towns team is calling on members of the community to help, and is launching an ‘Adopt a Flower Bed’ initiative.
Councillor Joe Garrihy is kindly sponsoring the purchase of plants – thanks Joe! – but community help is needed to weed and prepare 7 flower beds, 4 on the approach road from Ennis/Corofin and three on the Lisdoonvarna Road.
One household has already adopted beds 1 and 2 – see pictures below – but please bidto help with the rest! Call Dena on 087 761 8318 to choose your bed(s) and for any more information.
What’s needed is just weeding and preparing the bed for planting any time before Thursday 24 June (after which the Team will organise planting). Please take a before-and-after picture of the flower bed you adopted and post that on the Kilfenora Online or Tidy Towns facebook page, or email it to [email protected].
Just so you know, apart from rescuing these flower beds, the intention is to install planters in Kilfenora Square and at Inchovea Church, and put plants in the bed on the Ennistymon approach road. Flower beds are already in place at the West entrance to the Cathedral.
