St Peter's Square in Wexford got a makeover when volunteers from the local Tidy Towns group teamed up with members of the Bible Church and Men's Shed to get stuck into cleaning up the area last week.

A general litter pick and street sweep was done as well as weeding, repairing planter boxes and planting flowers around the fountain which were kindly donated by the Bible Church.

PRO for Tidy Towns Phil Murphy said: 'The rubbish wasn't too bad this time. The fountain had a bit of litter so we got that switched off to clean it out. We scraped posters off windows on the Main Street as that is becoming a big problem here in town.'

The volunteers also pulled out any weeds on the corner of Bride Street and Clifford Street plus any other jobs that presented themselves to them.

Tidy Towns will be out every Wednesday and Friday evenings for an hour meeting in the Bullring at 6 p.m. from now until September. They would love to have new volunteers to help out even for the next three weeks as they need to make sure everything is up to standard for the Tidy Towns National Competition.

The competition will take place June, July and August, conducted in secret and on unspecified dates by adjudicators appointed by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.
