AN estimated 100 people took part in Baltimore Tidy Towns’ Good Deed Good Friday clean-up.

Maureen O’Hanlon, PRO of the Baltimore group, said that such was the success of this year’s event that they are planning on making it an annual event – always on a Good Friday.

The PRO explained that the volunteers were ‘dispersed to the four corners of the village – to the beaches and even right up to the Beacon. And the residents in each of the estates came out to do a spot of early pruning, sweeping and gathering up.’

The volunteers and committee members celebrated ‘a job well’ done over refreshments that were served at the Fr Cashman Community Hall, and Easter treats were provided for the children who took part.

Speaking on behalf of the active Tidy Towns group, Maureen said: ‘We would like to thank everyone who got involved. They did a super job. The place looks great and it’s a fantastic start to the tourist season.’
