Tidy Towns

This week we have more of the adjudicators report on Dromod. Wildlife and Natural, Amenities

Your wildlife policy is extremely well thought out and is most detailed. The Harbour area is such a wonderful wildlife resource and the Wildlife Amenity area here was visited and enjoyed. The grass areas here were neatly cut and the toilets were quite clean. However the advertising notices detract from the overall visual impact of this key area in Dromod. Your approach to and understanding of biodiversity is impressive. The river walk and nature trail near River Meadow is impressive. The Community Garden and Butterfly Garden were also enjoyed.
