Clare County Council has organised a Tidy Towns information and networking evening on Monday next at Áras Contae an Chláir in Ennis.
This 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 competition.
Speakers at the event, starting at 6pm, will 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.
“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,” commented Councillor John 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 and previous winners, as well as the various council resources”.
