Annual River Barrow Clean Up - 14th May
Athy Tidy Towns Group is organising their annual clean up of the banks of the River Barrow to take place on Saturday, 14th May next. They are seeking the help of all the community to come out and help out with the litter pick operation on the day.
The Tri Athy 2011 triathlon (www.triathy.com ( http://www.triathy.com/
)) is fast approaching and it is essential that the river will look at its best for the thousands of participants and visitors who will come to Athy.
The clean up is being organised in association with the Civil Defence, Athy District Anglers, Athy Chamber, North Barrow Branch (IWAI), Tri Athy organisers and the Town Council. The group will meet at the Courthouse at 9.45am and the clean up will continue until c. 2pm. They are inviting anyone (with even an hour to spare) to come out and join in on the day.
