National Tidy Towns Competition – not just about Flowers & Litter Control – Community Gathering on Monday 3rd April at 8 p.m. in the Old School – all are welcome.
Clarecastle 2018 is a Clarecastle Tidy Towns initiative to involve all community groups, businesses & residents to build on the visible enhancements achieved in recent years and reflected by a fantastic gain of 37 points in the National Tidy towns Competition since Clarecastle re-entered the National Tidy Towns Competition in 2011. To gain points in the Competition, Clarecastle Tidy Towns has to demonstrate progress in a wide range of categories. The work not just about the cosmetics – hanging a few attractive baskets in the village and litter control – it is so much more than that. It is about enhancing our built environment, carrying sustainable environmentally friend waste management and energy use and so much more.
All community groups, residents associations, schools & businesses and anybody else who would like to contribute are invited to come along to a community gathering in the Old School on Monday 3 April 2017 at 8pm to review the various categories in the National Competition. Each group might then see how their projects or potential projects might fit in to the overall Tidy Towns plan and which will undoubtedly help to increase our overall marks in the National Competition. Clarecastle Tidy Towns aims to start achieve a County Category Prize by 2018 but this can only be done by the community pulling forces and working together to make Clarecastle a better place to live, work and play.
