Annual Clean Up – Saturday 13th July

The Clean Up of the estate will take place on Saturday, 13 July 2024, from 10am.

The MMRA Tuesday Plaza Planters and additional local residents work during the year to try and keep Mount Merrion beautiful. At this time of the year we need the added assistance of all residents where possible.

The verges, kerbs and paths are full of weeds at this time of year. We ask if residents can come together road by road and help clear outside their houses, those of their elderly neighbours and, where possible, the common areas.

A number of residents have already commenced a Clean Up of the Wilson Rd / Deerpark Rd pedestrian laneway……. Well done to all.

MMRA will supply pre-paid Panda bags at the following locations:
> Redesdale Rd
> Wilson Rd and Deerpark Rd
> Cedarmount
> Greygates
>Trees Rd Lower /Sycamore Rd

Can you please give an hour to help keep Mount Merrion beautiful ?
If you cannot make it on Saturday morning the bags will be in place until Monday 15th morning.

We request that the Bags be used for The Clean Up Day ONLY – Thank you.

Wanted – Dragons!

We’re on the hunt for fearless families to step into the scales of “Dragons” for our very own Research Dragon’s Den!
