GLIN TIDY TOWNS
Judging season is upon us, and the Supervalue Tidy Towns adjudicators will be calling to lovely Glin to evaluate. The Tidy Towns is organised by the Department of the Environment, Community and local government and the main sponsor, Supervalue. The competition involves participating areas being rated on all aspects of their local environment and prizes awarded to the best under many different categories. The overall winner is “Ireland’s Tidiest Town”. which is announced at a national ceremony in September each year.
With progress monitored and detailed feedback provided year on year, most participants initially enter the competition to generate interest about the environment in their community and create a solid platform on which to raise issues with the relevant authorities. Over time, the areas attain a standard where competing for major prizes is within reach. As such it is very much a development programme as much as a competition.
Aside from the competition, we would wish to keep Glin looking clean and beautiful all year round. Thank you to all the volunteers who give of their time on a regular basis to keep their and other areas of Glin clean and litter free. BEST OF LUCK TO GLIN.
