A Tidy Towns information and networking evening will take place next Monday (30th March, 2015) at 6pm in the Council Chamber at Áras Contae an Chláir in Ennis.

Hosted by Clare County Council, the third annual event will feature expert advice and a questions and answers session for Tidy Towns groups from across County Clare seeking to improve their score in the 2015 Tidy Towns Competition.

Speakers on the night include Tom Coughlan, Chief Executive of Clare County Council; Lorraine Power, Environmental Consultant and Tidy Towns Adjudicator; and Paul Edson, Tidy Towns Chairperson in Kilrush which was named Ireland’s Tidiest Small Town in 2014.

Speaking ahead of the event, Cathaoirleach, John Crowe stated: “This event provides me, in my role as Cathaoirleach of Clare, with a real opportunity to acknowledge the positive work that is taking place by these groups in all our towns and villages across the County.”

“By improving their local environment they are setting a great example for our young people and are fostering in them a pride of place in their local community which will remain with them for life. Regardless of whether or not they have received an award in the national Tidy Towns competition, each of these groups are already winners for the huge positive contribution they have made to their localities,” added the Cathaoirleach.

“It is important that our county is presented in the best possible light, as a clean and green destination to live in, do business in and visit and these groups play a big part in this.  Clare County Council will continue to support these groups,” said Councillor Crowe.

Chief Executive, Tom Coughlan explained that the purpose of the information evening is to provide Tidy Towns groups with “a valuable networking opportunity and to enable them to tap into beneficial advice and support from fellow participants, previous winners as well as the various Council resources”.

He continued: “Clare’s Tidy Towns groups make a positive contribution to the improvement and appearance of our towns and villages.  We had a similar event last year which received a positive response from the groups.  The official launch of the Super Valu Tidy Towns 2015 competition takes place next Wednesday. I hope this Information Evening will provide valuable information and assistance to the groups and hopefully encourage more groups to get involved in this year’s competition”.
