Tidy Towns Competition 2018

The Tidy Towns judging commences on Friday June 1st and we are hoping to improve on last year’s marking but we cannot do it without the help and cooperation of everyone in the village. Please take care of your own patch and if you see litter pick it up and put it in the bin.Thanks to Raymond Mc Hugh for the latest addition to the scene, our new post box, which as well as looking so very authentic doubles as a tourist information point. Hopefully the judges will come on a nice Sunny day when our lovely village can be viewed to its best advantage. Good luck to the committee and continued success in the competition.
