Glenties Notes on April 27th 2000

At a meeting of the Glenties Traders Association it was decided that anyone interested in, or concerned about the ‘Draft County Development Plan’ should attend the Public Meeting for the Glenties Electoral Area in the Community Centre, Ardara, on Wednesday 3rd May at 8.00pm, where the proposed changes will be explained and discussed. Any objections/ submissions may be made at this meeting.

There is a growing concern at the level of littering and illegal dumping in the Glenties area and the very obvious problems this causes. To help alleviate this situation we are appealing to the community to join us on Wednesday 26th April for a major ‘CLEAN UP’ of the town area, river and incoming roads. We will assemble at 5pm outside the Garda Station where bins and gloves will be provided. Please bring with you-Wellington boots and waders if possible. All volunteers are insured under a National Scheme. Obviously the less littering and dumping that takes place the easier the ‘clean-up’ will be, so we urge everyone to be vigilant and help put a stop to this environment vandalism. Littering is a very serious offence with serious penalties and authorities have assured us that it will be strictly policed. >Here are some ideas and ways to help with this problem!
Some materials are easily recyclable e.g. tin cans, paper and glass–so use the sevices provided behind the Fire Station.
Don’t ask for plastic bags in shops when you purchase a very small number of items–if and when possible, use your own shopping basket.

The ‘Bluestack Way’ Committee want to thank the Glenties Traders Association for organising the ‘Spingclean’ in Glenties. The final ispection to include the “Bluestack Way” in the National Network of Waymarked Walks will take place in May.

There will be a special bus going to  Knock on Sunday 30th April.It will be leaving at 8.30am and anyone interested in going contact McGuinness’ 075 51284. This will be a very special celebration, as Blessed Faustina will be canonised in Rome that day.
