Tidy Towns

Two reasons why we are now asking for your help and co-operation, firstly Adjudication in the National Tidy Towns Competition is under way, secondly we are anxious to have Rosslare look its best for the Holiday Season and thereafter.

Now you can help by having a look at your own property/patch and making sure it is free of weeds, free of litter, and looking its best. If we can help you with any concerns or problems please do not hesitate to contact any of our volunteers.

The Coastal Clean-Up day was Tuesday last and we were delighted with the turn out and especially that a number of people who helped have now joined Tidy Towns as volunteers.

Our Volunteer Force is really doing some great work, not just for the competition but work that will permanently enhance the Village, we are encouraged with the very positive response from many people and we will certainly continue with our efforts.

Volunteering is the best possible way to show concern and interest in your community as well as being an enjoyable and fulfilling exercise. You do not have to be involved in Meetings, Talking shops etc just be prepared to enjoy the experience of doing something pleasant and practical for Rosslare.

Work can be undertaken on any day at any time, so think about it and become a True Volunteer for Tidy Towns and for your Village.
