Ennistymon Men’s Shed show off their handiwork for National Reuse Month 2017

in Home/News by

MEMBERS of Ennistymon Men’s Shed have marked National Reuse Month 2017 by exhibiting their hard work, and deservedly so.

The group transformed a donated shipment container, turning it into a year round shed for use by the men.

The container, which is located in the grounds of the North West Clare Family Resource Centre in Ennistymon, was renovated through the 2017 Clare County Council Waste Prevention Programme.

The grant funding, which is expected to be announced again in early 2018, aims to support communities to take steps on waste prevention, re-use and repair activities in their local areas, and encourage partnership between local businesses, local schools, charities, community and voluntary groups. Amongst those that will be invited to apply are community and voluntary groups, charities, schools and businesses.

In 2017, ten voluntary community projects received funding from the Environment Section of Clare County Council under the Waste Prevention Programme.

Elaine has been a member of staff with The Clare Echo since its foundation in October 2017. The paper's first Chief Reporter, the Kilrush woman is now working as a sub-editor in our busy newsroom.
