Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday for our annual Spring Clean & Verge Tidy and spruced up our kerbs, paths, verges, and communal areas around Mount Merrion.
Spring is in the air and the What’s App Group has sprung into action once again! The purpose of the group is to swap and share surplus seeds and plants, both flowers and vegetables. A good way to start a new garden or replace that ailing plant! If you would like to join us please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You would be most welcome.
Explore the insect life of Deerpark with Creative Entomologist Nessa Darcy!
Join Nessa as she introduces you to the diversity of hoverflies, bees, butterflies, bugs and beetles of Deerpark. Learn about their lives and homes, what they need, and why they are so important.
The event is free but donations to support the emergency response to the war in Ukraine are encouraged.
Registration is essential, bookings can be made through Eventbrite.
Join us this Saturday for our annual Spring Clean event. Meet at Mount Merrion Community Centre Car Park at 10.00am. Gloves, pickers and Hi Vis Jackets will be distributed. Ed Maguires’ has kindly sponsored a free ice cream to all participating children.
We hope you can join us for the Leaf Sweep and Verge Tidy this Saturday. MMRA-sponsored Panda Green Waste Skip Bags will be available in central locations for residents to deposit leaves swept up on the day.
If each resident could sweep the path and kerb outside their own home and place the leaves collected in the skip bag closest to their road.
Help with the grass verges and footpath area outside an elderly neighbours home, and communal areas such as the entrance to Deerpark, traffic islands and roundabouts would be much appreciated.
DLR Parks will be carrying out works in Cherrygarth open space starting this week. The old fencing will be removed and replaced with new hedging, there will be some repairs to the wall and rerendering. Bulb planting will also be part of the works. There are some failed trees there also and these will be removed and some Cherry trees planted in their stead.
