Leo the cockapoo on his Litter PickupWe clean up an area of our own choice for about 1.5 hours and adjourn for a complimentary coffee afterwards.  A great way to be outdoors, doing something useful for the Community and meeting new friends!  Together, we can keep Mount Merrion beautiful.

20210601_111633The Planters planted up by MMRA Volunteers and local residents at Supervalu on The Rise, on the Green space outside the shops at Upper Trees Road, at Glenabbey Road, at the back Church Car Park and at Sycamore Road/Trees Road Lower are continuing to thrive, adding colour to our beautiful Estate.  Local volunteer waterers are keeping them well watered, many thanks.

20210621_185058Likewise, the many new trees kindly planted by DLR on the roads in Mount Merrion and in Deerpark need at least a bucket of water every two days in this their first growing season.  If you are fortunate enough to have one near you, please look after it.

Hold Firm

Schools Out for Summer

With schools now on summer holidays please keep a special look-out for children out and about on bikes and scooters, playing and walking around the estate.

Motorists Please Slow Down.

Park Safely, and with consideration for local residents, buggies, wheel-chair users, and pedestrians. Please do not block gates, park on double yellow lines or in a way that might obscure the visibility of oncoming traffic for others. Pedestrians and Cyclists be safe and be seen.

Seed & Plant Swap News

The group has been relatively quiet of late with Spring planting complete. Seeds and plants are in situ and, hopefully, many are starting to enjoy the fruits of their labours.
