250 native Irish bluebell bulbs were planted by pupils of CBS Primary School, Charleville on Monday, 21st November in the site behind the graveyard opposite O’Shea’s Hardware. The pupils were assisted by Mr. O’Sullivan, Principal, Ms Casey and Mr. Neenan of CBS and Charleville Tidy Towns volunteers.
The bulb planting represents another step in the development of what we hope will become a little urban woodland. The trees on this site were relocated from the “Charlene, the Cow” site on the Limerick Road in April. Now bluebell bulbs have been planted around the trees and we look forward to seeing them bloom in Spring. Well done and thank you to the boys of 5th class. Your behaviour is exemplary, you are a credit to your parents and teachers. It was our pleasure to work with you. Our compliments and thanks to Mr. O’Sullivan, Ms.Casey and Mr. Neenan.
Charleville Tidy Towns is a voluntary organisation made up of volunteers from the community, working in, with and for the community. We are greatly assisted by Cork County Council, and Tus, without whose help many of the projects we undertake would not be possible. We try to get as many groups as possible within the community involved in our endeavours to improve the environment for all who live and/or work in Charleville and to make it as attractive as possible for visitors. We would be delighted to meet anybody interested in Tidy Towns on Saturday, 3rd December, when we will have a stand in St. Mary’s Secondary School Hall during the Enterprise Town weekend.
ST STEPHEN’S DAY WALK/RUN
Charleville Lions Club are this year again organising a walk/run on St. Stephen’s Day as they have done for the past number of years. This is a valuable fundraiser for Charleville Tidy Towns. We are very grateful to Charleville Lions Club, to John Brady who maps out the route, to the many North Cork A.C. athletes and all runners/walkers who participate. Charleville Lions Club provide refreshments for all in the Scout Hall afterwards and it has proved to be a very enjoyable occasion and an opportunity to stretch the legs, get some fresh air and meet and greet friends who may be home for Christmas. We look forward to a big turnout on St. Stephen’s Day.
