With local businesses starting to re-open following the lockdown period, Ballina traders have planned to come together tomorrow morning to make sure the town is looking its best.
The Chamber of Commerce is appealing to local traders to come out and help tidy up the town centre at 9.30am tomorrow, Saturday, May 23.
Mags Downey-Martin from the Chamber of Commerce office explained that the four main streets of the town have begun to look a bit sad following a protracted period of minimal activity.
Weeds have even begun to spring up where they would never normally be seen.
Traders and owners of businesses on the four main streets of O’Rahilly St, Pearse St, Tone St and Bridge St are urged to meet up at The Junction Restaurant at 9.30am tomorrow and to bring their own gloves to help out with the clean-up.
Social distancing will be observed throughout the exercise:
“We just want to support the town and businesses and put the message out there that we will be starting to re-open and will do so in a way that will make the town a safe place for shoppers to come to,” Ms Downey-Martin said.
