Inch/Mount Uniacke Tidy Towns need Volunteers

By Claire O’Donoghue


Inch/Mount Uniacke Tidy Towns are seeking volunteers to join them over the summer months. The group will spend an hour or two each Wednesday evening in the Inch / Mount Uniacke areas in an effort to keep their countryside as clean and green as possible. Any and all help would be very much appreciated. Set up three years ago by a small committee, the Inch/Mount Uniacke Tidy Towns group has been busy with, for example, hedgerow maintenance, the provision of hanging baskets in key  areas and litter collection, to name but a few. They have also planted daffodils along almost the entire road from Inch School to Mount Uniacke.

Speaking with The East Cork Journal, committee member Mary Collins said, “It isn’t a big commitment. We go out every Wednesday evening, and new volunteers could just sign up for one or two evenings a month. The more volunteers we get, the less each individual will actually have to commit to doing, and the more we can achieve. It’s to benefit the entire community in the area so we would really appreciate any help you can offer.”

The group say they have larger projects they would like to tackle, such as the repair of the wall on the Park Road and the installation of hanging baskets at the site. Projects like these and others, however, are always being put on the long finger as general maintenance and litter clean up takes up their time for the couple of hours they attend them each week.

If you can volunteer a few hours a month to keeping Inch / Mount Uniacke looking its best please contact Mary on 086 9385911
