The Tidy Towns season is in full swing and the village is looking bright and colourful with the hanging baskets, window boxes and shrubs basking in the glorious sunshine. Watering is almost a full time job but the results are obvious. Thanks to the residents for all the fresh paintwork and to everyone for the cleanups. There are loads of litter bins around the place so don’t forget to feed them regularly. Let’s have zero litter for the judges this summer. The next Tidy Towns clean up will be next Wednesday, July 7th at 8pm. Please come along and give a hand and help make the place we live in a better place.
