XX Idrone XX
Dear Ms XXX*
I have submitted the following query about the cancellation of your recent clean-up
As the Green Party area representative for the Templeogue-Terenure area I have been informed that a recent clean-up in the Idrone area of Knocklyon had to be cancelled because the council did not respond with information about bags and pickers as well as the collection of the bags etc. I am very surprised to hear this as the council has a policy of supporting such local initiatives, would you have any information about what happened in this case?
Knocklyon is a lovely area with many younger families moving in and it is important for such community events to build up a spirit of co-operation and respect for their environment among the younger members of the community as well as to give a hand to the more elderly members who perhaps cannot manage to keep on top of the growth of hedges etc as they once could. So can you please commit to providing materials for the next clean-up that is organised?
I think that a Tidy Towns group could help recruit people for clean ups and get support from the council, I will be pursuing this possibility (regardless of the outcome of the election!)
