Tidy Towns

The fine weather is our annual signal to get back out on the street in preparation for the Adjudicators inspection in June.  We’re starting with a Spring clean next Saturday, 26th April, meeting at the Parish Hall, 10.30am.  Please come and join us and if you don’t have your own rubber gloves and pickers, we will provide them. We will break up into teams and tackle a number of areas, so if you have a friend or neighbour, please encourage them to come along.  Our Tuesday evening work nights will recommence from now on, weather permitting, meeting at the Parish Hall 7.30pm.  The TUS and FAS workers are doing a great job, keeping the grass cut and the streets clean, but we need a lot more help to keep on top of all that needs to be done. See you Saturday.
