Loughanure Area Text Alert Scheme Meeting

CCC LogoPublic meeting in The Abbey Community Centre at 8pm on Thursday October 19th.

Clane Community Council is assisting people in Loughanure, Butterstream, Firmount and Ballinagappa to establish a Text Alert scheme for the area. We expect that we will finally have the above scheme set up and running by end of October 2017. A meeting is now arranged  to inform you of the mechanics of the system and to accept late entries to the scheme. We will also be able to share the experience of other groups already in motion in the area.

We have ordered 7 Text Alert signs to be erected in locations advised by An Garda Siochana and Kildare County Council.

The Text Alert initiative is organised by Muintir na Tire, and supported by an Garda Siochana, and has been highly successful in combatting crime and in such other ways as finding missing persons, missing animals, and saving health and lives of vulnerable members of the communities. The effectiveness of Text Alert has proven to discourage undesirable activity and communities feel safer in their homes.

The following people are involved in setting up the scheme:

  • Oisin O’Shaughnessy      087 6708931     Hon. Treasurer
  • Tom Treacy                       087 2046370
  • Kathleen Gately
  • Patricia Healy                   085 7730500
  • Noelle Maertens
  • Niall Keena                       087 6204747     Hon. Secretary
  • Bernie Foley                     087 2737402
  • Sinead Hussey
  • Padraig McEvoy               086 8658262
  • John Daly                          086 2583635     Hon. Chairperson

The meeting is being held in The Abbey, Clane at 8pm on Thursday October 19th.

Award Winning Estates Competition 2017

Clane Tidy Towns is delighted to announce the launch of Clane’s Award Winning Estates competition 2017, thanks again to the generous sponsorship of Clane Project Centre.

The competition is designed to help recognize the great work that residents put into maintaining their Residential Areas. All estates – new and established – are encouraged to enter.

For all of this year’s details, including information on what the judges look for, please download our Entry Pack. Entry forms can be handed to any member of the Tidy Towns committee, or submitted online here. You can also browse details of previous competitions.

You will see that this year Clane Tidy Towns is looking to see how we can support the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan, working to protect our butterflies, bees and other vital insects for future generations. The Clane Tidy Towns team is focusing on the public areas of Clane, but gardens and housing estates have a valuable role to play too. For 20 low-cost or no-cost suggestions have a browse of the Pollinator Plan Action Pack for Gardens. If your estate, or your garden, adopts pollinator friendly features we encourage you to log your efforts on the national acticity map online, or feel free to email ClaneTidyTowns@gmail.com and we will be delighted to upload the details for you – it all adds to Clane’s Tidy Towns efforts.

Thank you for your continued support – and to the estates that enter: best of luck!
