- We in Kinvara Tidy Towns support the policy
of social distancing till we are advised otherwise and so we are cancelling all
Tidy Towns group activities till further notice. If you would like to get some
fresh air and exercise by yourself we have taken the decision to leave our Tidy
Towns shed unlocked for now. There are litter pickers and wheelie bins and some
gloves and some garden tools in there. You are very welcome to do whatever activity
you choose whether it is a litter pick around the town or the quay or some
weeding/planting of any of the flower beds around the Community Centre or the
school or elsewhere.
Please leave the shed
tidy and if you can take the litter home that’s great or if not leave in the
bin and we will try to sort it. Please leave all the tools/equipment back where
you got it. Please close the door and fix with the bolt when you are leaving.
