2012 Spring Clean

The annual Spring Clean will take place on Saturday, 12th May at 2pm. Refuse sacks will be distributed at the green at the top of Rocwood Drive. Please support your community by playing a part in the clean up effort.

Grass Cutting Charge

  • Grass cutting has recommenced in recent weeks in Grange Manor
  • The Council has stated that the €100 Household Charge introduced this year does not cover the cost of grass cutting in private estates
  • In order for the existing contractual arrangement to be maintained in Grange Manor, the annual donation of €40 must remain
  • A widespread door-to-door collection as carried out by the GMRA in previous years is not planned for 2012

We would ask that householders act in good faith and contribute by either of the following payment options before 31st May 2012:

  1. PayPal: go to select street name and house
  2. By cash or cheque (simply email to arrange to have a
    volunteer call to you at a convenient time, or contact the GMRA representative
    closest to you to arrange payment)

If Grange Manor residents do not contribute at the same level as they have in the past the following may occur:

  • Suspension of grass cutting in 2012 until the fund is restored to the required level
  • Loss of the current grass cutting contractor, Evergreen Landscapes, who have offered a very keen price to the estate for the past two years
  • The GMRA may be dismantled

The main focus of the current GMRA has been to address common interests of residents, particularly grass cutting. Achievements to date include:

  • Grass maintenance, collection and management
  • Repair of the boundary fence in Asgard Grove/Drive
  • Annual spring cleans
  • Securing council grants to help the maintenance fund
  • Representing residents at council meetings (e.g. the Magenta Grove disruption in 2010)

Your suggestions and ideas on any of the above are always welcome. Please email to share your thoughts.
