Laurel Lodge Environmental Group has been getting stronger despite the lockdown. Now up to 45 members, you are likely to see our volunteers out litter picking throughout Laurel Lodge on Sunday mornings. 3 of our team recently took on a deep clean of Tír na nÓg Park and worked steadily at it week to week until it was completed. The park is transformed.
10 of our team also adopted patches in our lovely community garden, working with Castleknock Community Centre to return it to glory. Future plans include a local pollinator plan and flower meadows. And it’s still only our first year! We are so grateful for all our members’ hard work, all done safely without mixing of households.
Don't forget there's still time to purchase tickets for our fantastic fundraising Easter Raffle. You can see a selection of the fantastic prizes to be won in these photos. Funds raised from this raffle will go to the Playground Project to further develop the educational and play facilities for pupils including those with additional needs. Tickets cost €5 and payment can be made online via the Aladdin link which has been emailed to parents/guardians already. Additional tickets can be requested via the online link too. Sold tickets can be returned to class teachers up to Thursday, the 25th of March and the draw will be held on Friday the 26th of March via Zoom link to the classes.
