Supporting Kilcullen Summer Flowers

Businesses and homeowners who have supported the Kilcullen Summer Flowers 2016 project have been given window stickers by Kilcullen Tidy Towns, writes Brian Byrne.

The stickers use the slogan 'Keep Kilcullen Beautiful' and they also show the new Kilcullen Tidy Towns logo, which incorporates the tower of Old Kilcullen, the Kilcullen Community Action sun/spear logo, and a butterfly.

The costings for the project were discussed at the most recent meeting of KCA, which included the provision of the flowers themselves, extra plants, and maintenance of the water systems.

Noel Clare said he will have a final amount and breakdown of costs for the next meeting, but there is currently a shortfall towards the estimated cost of €5,300.

It is hoped the difference can be met both through donations from remaining businesses, and a planned street collection in early September.
