It’s getting to that time of year again and South Dublin County Council is encouraging people to have a safe Halloween by providing communities with daffodil bulbs to plant for lovely spring flowers instead of a scarred open space throughout the year as the result of a bonfire.

Bulbs not Bonfires is a reward in the Council’s Social Credits Scheme.

This scheme rewards community groups for undertaking local pro-environmental / non bonfire orientated Halloween activities and projects.

Community groups, environmental groups, resident associations and schools can apply outlining a plan to create a Safe Halloween.

Applicants are requested to submit details of their project before the closing date 13th October in order to receive bulbs for planting before Halloween.

Applicants must also nominate the site location for planting and submit photos of the site along with their applications.

Please send your application to [email protected].

The closing date for applications is Friday 13th October 2017. All applications will be dealt with on a first come first served rule.
