Tidy towns 2018

Tidy Towns Major Clean-Up: Milltown Tidy Towns were just two marks from “Gold Medal Status” last year.  A little more tidiness and colour would have secured Gold – can you contribute this year?  Paint a wall or chimney, powerwash a roadside footpath, plant a garden flowerbed or window-box.

Milltown Tidy Towns are organising a 2018 Parish Spring-Clean in the MILLTOWN/BALLYGLASS AREAS.  One or two volunteers are needed for each townland or village.  Free gloves & black bags are available in the Community Centre.  Contact Padraig Coyne (087-2261578) or Tina (087-9715301).

Milltown Tidy Towns are encouraging people to volunteer just one hour per week to the Tidy Towns.  You don’t have to live in the village or even the approach roads to be involved.  Free gloves will be provided.  Adopt a flower-bed, remove litter or kerb-weeds weekly.  Phone the Community Centre on 093-51876.

Milltown Tidy Towns judging in 2018 commences on June 1st next.  Your village is just 5 marks behind Keadue, Co. Roscommon and 8 marks behind Westport – both former All-Ireland winners.  Can you help by painting a shop-front, private house, a rusty field gate or even the side-walls to your lawn or property back & front.  Be proud of your parish and please lend a hand.
