2008 Moyvane Development Association Newsletter

July 2008

The results for last year show that Moyvane’s score improved again by one point to 241. This is quite welcome as the standards are getting better by the year. We began 5 years ago with 189 points, so well done to all. Having submitted out Tidy Town’s application and plan for 2008, work is in full swing with regular clean-ups, hanging baskets erected, residents busy with decorating and doing home improvements. We need your continued support and help to enhance the overall appearance of the village. Adjudicators will take into account everything from house painting, flower displays, gardens, general tidiness and litter control. Included with this newsletter is the competition adjudication results and report for 2007.

We have the potential to improve this score further by concentrating on the areas outlined in the adjudicators report. Adjudication will take place from the beginning of June to the end of July.

Plans for 2008

  • Repair footpath to Roches Cross.
  • Lay a footpath to the Kiln on the Knockanure Road.

As always, suggestions and ideas are welcome.
