Congratulations to our many volunteer pods who are keeping safe while they continue to work locally through out our city. also see our Facebook and twitter. Why not join one of our groups.
An extensive balsam removal scheme in the Kilkenny area river Nore and Breagagh on a phased basis has completed its 4th year. The aim is to remove plants before flowering and prevent seed being produced for the following year.
The banks all through our City have been restored to attractive riverside woodland. Balsam is an invasive weed which can push out the native species of plant leading to damage of river banks in the winter. While removing Balsam on the river bank it has been possible to see much of the river wildlife.
Kilkenny is looking even more beautiful. Last Thursday evening KKB joined volunteers including many from the The Butts area to do a clean up around The Butts and Canices Church area. The area has been so well maintained that everyone arrived back before the hour was up as there was so little rubbish. THIS is the result that KKB is looking for. Well done to all involved
