Greystones Tidy Towns and Council work together to install a public drinking water refill station at Burnaby Park. More stations to come!
A revitalization of the Greystones DART station, Charlesland and Shoreline roundabouts and the Burnaby Park beds are also underway!
Our first community fruit orchard has been planted on Mill Lane (near Aldi). Pollinator friendly orchard planted with edible fruit for future generations to enjoy.
We are proud to have launched and completed our first year with an active Junior Tidy Towns program. It is a privileged to work with the great families and teachers at all of our area primary schools. Jr Tidy Towns has conducted several beach cleans involving the primary school children.
See our new signage at South Beach encouraging people to keep our beach, sea, and waters clean of rubbish.
