Tidy Towns.


Adjudication is in full swing over the next number of weeks and we need the help of every resident in the village to improve our marks this season. We appeal to everyone in and around the village to make a special effort to keep it clean and tidy. Thanks to the small group of people who come out to paint clean tidy up the litter plant weed etc. Without the continued support of those people the village would not be looking so well. It’s so encouraging too when we receive compliments on how well the village is looking. Well done to all the workers and to Michael you truly show pride in your place. Keep up the good work. The Co. Council continue to complete the ducting and we hope that soon the path’s will be completed to enhance our village further.
