As the judging season for National Tidy Towns arrives, Longford Tidy Towns is anxious to maintain and build on the town’s considerable success to date. “Having being granted the IBAL award for the Tidiest Town in Ireland, it is indeed our intend to maintain that distinction,” John Farrell of Longford Tidy Towns explained.
Longford Tidy Towns is calling on all business owners to ensure their property is presented in the best possible manner. This includes washing shop fronts, sweeping footpaths, weeding etc.
If your property needs a face lift there is do have limited sponsorship from Providers Longford and Fleetwood paints which may be of interest, (contact any committee member).
Likewise all approach roads and housing estates need to look their best. Some estates have residents groups in place which have made that vital difference.
If your estate doesn’t already have a residents association why not start one yourself, Tidy Towns are always available and willing to assist.
For those living along our approach roads, a special word of encouragement to keep the roads and footpaths in your area free from weeds and litter.
Longford County Council and their outdoor staff are very supportive of Tidy Towns however local cooperation and involvement is crucial. Please take out that wheel barrow, yard brush and spade, knock on the neighbour’s door and bring them with you.
“Together you will be amazed at what can be achieved in just one hour,” John Farrell explained.
