We’d like to say thank you to all those who have so far contributed the €40 Estate Maintenance Contribution. If you have not already paid, a representative from the Grange Manor Residents Association will be calling to collect your contribution in the next few weeks. GMRA members will carry ID when collecting. All funds raised will be singularly reserved for maintaining the shared green areas in the estate that we all enjoy, and improving the appearance of our community.
A big thank you is due to all those who gave up several hours of their free time last Sunday (26th April) to help Grange Manor improve its cleanliness and remove as much litter as possible. We are all in this together and it’s great to see a community working alongside each other to keep our homes looking great! A grand total of 11 large refuse sacks were collected and crammed full of rubbish from the various streets and green areas – kindly taken away by Waterford City Council today. Residents also volunteered their time to clean up edges of curbing, prune trees, fix toppled trees, replace fence panels, and sweep up alongside footpaths. Overall the day was a great success!
The Grange Manor Residents Association has organised a Spring Clean in association with Waterford City Council, to take place on April 26th 2009 at 1500h. Spring Clean is an iniative run by An Taisce in conjunction with local councils – it encourages communities to get together and keep their areas clean and litter free. A number of waste disposal sacks and protective gloves are given by the Waterford City Council to the residents association and the City Council will also collect the waste collected, for free, after the event. This is a great opportunity to help tidy up the estate and remove annoyances such as litter that has been blowing around green areas for some time now or snagging the plants in your garden.
Help the volunteers by tidying up your front garden and immediate area outside your home so that rubbish can be easily packed into waste sacks. A little effort by everyone will make this event a huge success!
