If you’re new to volunteering or perhaps you were a volunteer in the past and have decided that now would be a good time to return to volunteering we would be delighted if you’d like to join us. Just get in touch with us and we’ll add you to our contact list. Our main activity is the weekly clean ups. But there are a range of other activities where volunteers can lend a hand if they want to – planting, graffiti removal, help with running events, support for our website/social media, as well as helping with future projects, like developing and implementing a biodiversity plan for the village environs. Just let us know what you’re interested in.

WHAT’S ON 

Our message is to #StaySafe – you are urged to use your own judgement and take personal responsibility for protecting yourself, your friends and your family.  Please read our Covid-19 policy. Ní neart go cur le chéile.

  • Saturday Tidy
    At our last meeting we said we would resume our usual organised clean up Saturday morning. However, given that we are once more in Level 5 restrictions we will not be staging any organised clean ups for at least the next month. Nevertheless, as mentioned in the last communication, a stash of equipment is available for any of you who wish to continue on an individual basis in keeping Monkstown looking its best. And if you have any questions or requests please contact us and we’ll get back to you quickly.
    Please stay safe and we wish you all a Very Happy New Year (and a return to normality).
‘Let’s Talk Climate’ webinar.

On Thursday 14th January the UN issued a warning that the world is on course for a ‘catastrophic’ temperature rise this century.

Do you fully understand what this climate change is and what it’s all about? Do you have unanswered questions, like didn’t the restrictions from Covid-19 fix this, or maybe you feel it’s a global matter and you can’t do anything about it?

We are hosting a webinar all about Climate Change with Gavin Harte, of ESD Training. Gavin will explain what climate change is so even I can understand it. He’ll talk about its impact and how we, as individuals and a community, can help tackle it. He’ll also take any of your questions.

This is the first in a number of environmental themed talks we’ll be hosting in 2021.

Please join us on Thursday 4th February 2021 at 7:00pm for this free online ‘Let’s Talk Climate’ webinar.
