Kilfinane Tidy Towns have commenced their work for the coming year, they are asking that house owners give their support by keeping their properties tidy and weed free. Painting of houses/walls etc. would add greatly to the overall appearance of the town, while window boxes, hanging baskets and flower tubs would be appreciated during the summer time.

The committee need people to join them as there is a lots of work planned for the coming year, from cleaning approach roads, weeding, planting and painting so there is definitely a job to suit everybody. Work began on Monday last 8 April and will continue every Monday evening from 7pm to 9pm, meeting at the Fountain. All are very Welcome, Tidy Towns is for everyone.

Limerick West GIY with the aim of inspiring people to grow their own food will hold its March meeting on Thursday, 18 April at 7pm sharp in D&M Garden Centre, Croagh, with new growers and old hands all welcome.

This month’s talk will be given by Chris who will speak about companion planting and its benefits. We will also be our second seed/plant swap of the season so please bring any unwanted seeds or excess plants and who knows you might just pick up that seed / plant you have been looking for. There is no need to bring anything if you don’t have spares and you can still take what you see during the swap.

From June/July we will be taking Limerick West GIY on the road visiting some of the many interesting gardens of other members. If you would like to host a meeting at your garden let us know at the next meeting and a month that would suit.
