Ward River Valley Cleanup

On the 1st of February 2020 Swords Tidy Towns have organised a cleanup of the valley of the river Ward. The event was well advertised through social media channels and the residents associations and have attracted over 30 volunteers on the day. Because of the size of the valley it was decided to designate three meeting points – one on the southside and one on the northside of the valley, and one at our regular meeting place. Each meeting point had been assigned a team leader to organise the volunteers in their group.

In a couple of hours of litter picking our dedicated volunteers have filled up over 75 bags of rubbish! That shows what a dedication and a community spirit can do. We are grateful for all the help we received from the residents, and we are also saying thank you to the Fingal County Council for the provision of extra bags and pickers, and also for a quick removal of the rubbish bags.
