Today was the annual Good Friday Clean-up with Sligo Tidy Towns. It was great to see so many volunteers of all ages turn up to lend a hand, especially as it was a cold, blustery day.
We went around the town for two hours collecting all kinds of rubbish, mainly cigarette ends (put them in a bin please folks). There were also a few election posters rescued and between us all we filled a council lorry with rubbish.
Brendan went along the banks of the Garovogue River and found two sets of false teeth, a pair of reading glasses and two mobile phones!
When we’d finished collecting the rubbish Des from Cafe Fleur arrived with some much-needed refreshments, I was never more delighted to see cake! Thanks Des, it was gorgeous!

I didn’t get a job but I had a look around anyway. The place was packed which was great to see.
When I got home it was time for my second litter pick of the day. This time in our village, another load of rubbish collected – some people are filthy!
So that was my Good Friday. If you want to volunteer with Sligo Tidy Towns they’d love to hear from you and it’s not all litter picking. You can find them here.
