Keep Fit, Keep Well, Keep Leitrim Lovely
As part of this latest initiative from Leitrim County Council, Fenagh Tidy Town members have been out this week collecting  bags of litter from the roads around Fenagh as they go about their daily walk.  Anybody can take part just bring along a bag and collect some litter as you walk along.  Even a small litter pickup will make a difference and help keep our local area litter free.  As we are still under Level 5 Covid Restrictions collections should only be done individually or within your own household/support bubble within 5KM from your home. Don’t forget to wear your high vis jacket.  You can send a photo of your litter collect to environment@leitrimcoco.ie to be in with a chance of winning some spot prizes!
