Ennis will undergo one of the largest ever community-clean-ups in the history of the town this coming Saturday when businesses, community groups, sports organisations and residents hit the streets to pick up litter.

Ennis Tidy Towns Committee, supported by Ennis Chamber of Commerce and Clare County Council, is calling on the people of the town and surrounding areas to show their civic pride by turning up on the day to lend their support to the initiative which is aimed at enhancing the Clare County Capital’s chances of becoming Ireland’s Tidiest Town.

The weekend clean-up forms part of ‘On The Move To Become Ireland’s Tidiest Town’, a community-wide campaign launched earlier this month to help Ennis achieve national success in the 2015 SuperValu TidyTowns Competition.

The clean-up takes place from 11am to 1pm with groups, businesses and individuals interested in taking part asked to gather at 10.30am in the grounds of Áras Contae an Chláir on the New Road.  Groups carrying out clean-ups in their own community are also asked to register their events in advance on http://www.ennistidytowns.com.

Clare County Council will be providing cleaning gloves, bags and a limited number of litter pickers to participants on the day while Clean Ireland Recycling will dispose of any rubbish and litter collected during the various clean ups taking place throughout the town.

Meanwhile, approach roads to Ennis will be targeted by individuals, community groups and businesses, including McDonalds staff (Gort Road), An Garda Síochána (Tulla Road), Ennis Sub Aqua Club (Lahinch Road), Clare Civil Defence (Quin Road) and Ennis Lions Club (Kilrush Road), amongst others.

Other initiatives being hosted as part of ‘On The Move To Become Ireland’s Tidiest Town’ include a Garden Competition for Residential Areas, a Photo Competition for Transition Year Students, and the cleaning and painting of derelict sites and other locations throughout Ennis.
