A neighbourhood-wide community initiative has begun in the Long Lane area of Letterkenny in hopes of keeping the area cleaner.
The initiative, started by the Long Lane Area Residents Association, aims to bring a close sense of community back to the Letterkenny estate.
A committee has now been organised to seek the improvement of the district – with one method being a community clean-up in the various estates in the Long Lane.
“We plan on doing clean-ups in each estate now for to foreseeable future,” said committee chairman, Finn O’Donnell.
“We are urging everyone to come out and chip in with whatever time they can spare.
“We have obtained bags, gloves and pickers from the council and we will provide brushes and things like that, so no excuses.”
The first of the community clean-up will take place in Meadowbank this Saturday (September at 12pm.
The meeting point will be at the top end of the estate just off the green space area coming into Glencar Shopping Centre.
