Following on from previous year’s success and as part of the Backing Ballyshannon initiative, ‘Operation Ballyshannon’ will be held on Saturday 6th April, in conjunction with the on-going work of the Ballyshannon Regeneration Group.

This one-day spring clean blitz will focus in on some problem areas and improve the physical appearance of the town. Everything from painting, power-washing, weeding, strimming, planting flowers and litter collection will be organised on the day.

We are asking local builders, painters, carpenters, labourers, sporting and community groups, business people, local schools and the general public to come out and give this one day to your town and instil some civic pride

in the community.

Work will commence at 10 a.m. If you would like to take part please contact Ballyshannon Town Council on 071/9858270 to register.

Meeting point on Saturday morning at 9.30 a.m. will be Ballyshannon Town Council Offices, Abbeyview. Gloves, bags, high visibility jackets etc. will be supplied. Please bring along your own tools if possible.

Refreshments will be served afterwards.

Ballyshannon is set in an idyllic setting which looks out over the estuary and has panoramic views of nearby mountains – be proud of the town you live in, this is your chance, your town needs you, so please give it this one day … taking part will really make a difference ….

As this is the year of The Gathering we are encouraging everyone to come out for a while on Saturday morning to help in some way with this clean up … we promise you’ll enjoy it!!!
