Hello Friends,

Wow, February, flew by, almost as fast as a few hours cleaning the canal! Don't forget to join us at 10 am on Saturday, March 4th at our bench by Leeson Street Bridge if you can. Pickers, bags and gloves all provided. Coffee compliments of Starbucks (Leeson Street) to finish at noon.

In 2015, Dublin City Canals held a clean-up on both canals; Dublin Canals Action Day. The idea was to build on the work carried out voluntarily by existing clean-up groups on both canals and to bring all canal lovers and users together on one day. Driven by volunteers, it's happening this year again so pop April 22nd in your diary and keep an eye on the Facebook Page: [www.facebook.com] for more information.

See you at the clean-up,
Stephanie

DUBLIN CANALS ACTION DAY
22nd APRIL 2017

On April 22nd, volunteers are coming together to give the canals the spring clean they deserve.

Regular volunteer clean-ups occur each month on both canals, and this is the second major Action Day where all groups are coming together simultaneously as part of An Taisce’s National Spring Clean. The initiative, driven by the volunteers has the support of An Taisce as well as the Dublin City Canals group, a non-profit organisation comprised of representatives from the volunteer clean-up and local community groups, small local businesses, The Inland Waterways Association of Ireland, Dublin City Council and Waterways Ireland. The group’s aim is to promote the use of both of Dublin’s beautiful canals to their fullest potential as amenities.

Regular volunteers will be out in force and hope anyone else who uses and enjoys the canals will join them. All equipment provided, just bring yourself and your energy. Everyone is welcome!

For further information, please see www.facebook.com/dublincanalsactionday

Register through Volunteer Ireland (this will help us organise) or just show up on the day.

Hello Friends,

Join us if you can at 10 am on Saturday, August 5th at our bench by Leeson Street Bridge. Pickers, bags and gloves all provided.

As usual, we'll finish at noon with coffee compliments of Starbucks (Leeson Street). Due to the redevelopment of our storage shed we had to find another home for our equipment. Starbucks are now also providing storage space. Thank you Starbucks!

Also relating to coffee; If you have a keep cup or any type of vessel that's not disposable for your coffee, please do bring it along. Every cup washed saves one being disposed.

There was a recent conversation about visibility of volunteers; that more people would join if they knew what we were doing. Since then Waterways Ireland have offered to produce high visibility volunteer vests for all groups on both canals. A very nice gesture that we're taking up. We'll soon be, more visible!

Thanks,
Stephanie
