Spring Clean 2019

This weekend, March 29/30/31st is our annual spring clean weekend here in Askamore where we ask all of our local residents to get out & to get involved in picking up any rubbish which might be littering our beautiful area.

National Spring Clean encourages people from all walks of life to take pride in their local environment and to take action against litter.  The National Spring Clean aims to promote personal responsibility for litter and heighten awareness of litter and waste issues.  By volunteering for the campaign you can take an active role in improving and maintaining your local environment, by making it a cleaner and more enjoyable place to live in.

We all have a responsibility for litter and participating in the National Spring Clean provides an opportunity to get involved with your local community and take action against all the litter that spoils our environment.

All members of the community council have black bags and some gloves are available from them. Please get in touch with whoever is in your locality.

Don’t forget, we love photographs here in Askamore so if you get out & about, please take a before and after photo and post it to our Facebook page using the hashtag #askamorespringclean

New Concrete

With thanks to an amenity grant received from Wexford County Council, yesterday new concrete was poured out the back of the hall which tidied up the back area and creates a new, safe, outdoor area for the marquee tent etc.

This could not have been done without the help of all the volunteers who gave up their time on numerous weekends to help prepare and complete this job.

Many Thanks to Peter Cooper, Adam English, Ger Blackbyrne, Sean Byrne, Padraig O Connor, Davy Donohoe, Paddy Byrne, Mick O Neill, Jason Kehoe, Seamus Kehoe, Stacy Gilbert & Ann Potignano.

Irish Rural Link Urge Older People to Keep Safe and Warm during the Cold Weather Conditions

Irish Rural Link – the national network representing the interest of rural communities is urging older people to keep safe and keep warm during the cold weather over the next few days.

With snow in some parts of the country and freezing conditions expected to last for the coming days, we are urging older people to keep warm and avoid going out if at all possible.  Very often older people don’t leave heat on or keep fires going but they should keep house extra warm during this time and wear extra layers.

We ask that people that they call in on elderly neighbours to ensure they have enough fuel and food and not presume someone else is calling in on them.

We also urge older people to contact neighbours if they do need help with anything and not be afraid to ask and if they have a personal alarm to check it is working and have it on their person at all times.

People need to be extra mindful of older neighbours living on their own at this time.
