Plans are at an advanced stage for the planned Bundoran Community Challenge day hosted by Bundoran Tidy Towns which will take place on Saturday February 17th in the town.
A massive operation to tidy up some of the buildings that need some attention will take place on the day as the community comes together to revitalise some areas of the town including the West End and Astoria Road.
Event organiser Gina Geagan says the response from the community has been great ‘we have been overwhelmed with the support of the community and businesses who have offered their help with finances, materials or the all important person power on the day itself. We would like to say a huge thanks to all those who have put their hands in the pockets or agreed to help with the painting and cleaning on the actual day of the cleanup.’
Already a number of preparation days have taken place as all the planned work cannot be completed in one day. Buildings have been stripped down and painted plain white in preparation for new designs and murals on February 17th.
Michael McMahon of Bundoran Tidy Towns added ‘we would like to say a huge thanks to those members of the community who have given up their time to help us with the all important prep work of the various buildings around Bundoran. Stripping of walls, power washing and pre-painting have all been an important part of the process so that as much work as possible can be done on the challenge day of February 17th.
Children will also have a part to play on the day as they will put together a mural using recycled materials including bottle caps. This work will be completed at Bundoran Community Centre.
All volunteers are to meet at Bundoran Community Centre at 10am on Saturday 17th February. For more details beforehand or to make a donation of cash, materials or yourself for some work on the day, see Bundoran Tidy Towns on Facebook.
