Roundwood & District News ~ 25th of April 2022

Lovely to see the stitchworth in bloom along the road verges


April is usually the National Spring Clean month, even though we know well that volunteers are busy picking up litter all year round. So for the last few days of April let’s all make a big effort to pick up any litter we see when we are out and about. It’s a good time to see the litter in the ditches while the vegetation is still a bit low. A small number of litter pickers and bags are available for regular litter picking in your area ~ email for details. If there is illegal dumping in your area please report it to the PURE Project by lo-call 1800 365 123.


Results of the draw held on Sunday 24th April. There was no jackpot winner. The numbers drawn were 5, 13, 23 & 29. There were two match three winners. Sarah Kavanagh and Emily Horne. Next week’s jackpot will be €15,700.
