Public Meeting

Thanks to those who came out to the public meeting tonight. To Councillor Paul Ross for attending and to Billy Flynn, who gave us an informative insight into how the Tidy Towns are judged and ideas on how to improve our marks. Ideas came from the floor and from that we hope to put together some projects that will help boost our town and improve our marks over the coming years. If you’d like to get involved feel free to contact this page with your name and mobile number and we can out you on our contacts list. It doesn’t have to be everyday – you could organise clean-ups in your own areas – you could look at ways to reduce your waste, save energy, recycle.

New railings

Our new railings have been started – they add a nice new look to this part of the town. They are built in sections – if one gets damaged it can be repaired/replaced – looking forward to seeing these finished and the new seats installed to complete the job.

 

 

2017 Results

We are happy to announce that we have increased our marks for 2017 from 263 to 270. We’d like to thank all the volunteers who helped out through the year, Mostrim Traders for their continued support and we hope to continue to increase our marks in 2018.
