Clonmel Tidy Towns and The Residents Association of the Springfields Community joined forces to keep the neighbourhood tidy and promote biodiversity.
Clonmel Tidy Towns has been cutting down dead trees. Replaced with new trees. Residents association on board. Regular little picks. In autumn leaf litter was used on little green space to increase biodiversity. Wood pile/ compost heap made for wildlife. At least one resident hedgehog!
Some of our members live on Bianconi Drive. Over the past year and a half they have worked with their neighbours to reclaim waste ground along the railway fence. The fence runs all the way along the edge of the estate and the area had been very neglected over the years and had become a rubbish black spot. Together, our Clonmel Tidy Towns members and their neighbours have turned it into a haven of biodiversity. We were happy to support this project with conservation signage, seeds, bulbs and plants.
