Carrick Night Time Ambassadors
Posted on : May 25, 2015
Carrick on Shannon Chamber is proud to be involved in the Carrick Ambassador programme. This initiative was set up by two Chamber Members and is run under the auspices of Carrick Chamber. A team of 6 workers are employed to keep the town clean and tidy between the hours of 10pm and 5am on Friday and Saturday nights on a normal week and Sunday also on bank holiday weekends. They collect litter and remove bottles, glasses and leave the town ready for businesses, visitors and local residents the following morning. This is funded by local businesses such as hotels, pubs accommodation providers, restaurants and takeaways who make weekly contributions to cover the cost of wages and equipment etc. We would really like to get more businesses involved as this would spread the cost more evenly. Our sincere gratitude to those who are already contributing as this scheme has made such a difference to our town and is noticed by both visitors and locals. Our thanks also to Leitrim Co Council for their support. Contributions from any other local businesses or organisations would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in becoming involved in the scheme please call Monica or Marie in the Chamber Office at 0719622245 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
