Tidy Towns 2014

2014 is going to be year that our tidy towns efforts move up a gear.  We have managed to increase our score every year since 2010 when the new committee first formed.  However for the first time we are able to commit more of our time and resources into making a big impression in this years competition.  We are holding a tidy towns meeting in Scanlon’s bar on Thursday April 3rd at 8pm.  We would encourage everyone to come along and be part of tidy towns 2014; all it takes is one hour minimum each week to help make a difference.  We have plans and ideas on how best to maximize our score and will be working with as many individuals and groups across Newmarket as we possibly can.  We very much hope to see you on April 3rd and would welcome every new member to be part of our tidy towns team.

This year we will be taking a different approach to Tidy Towns. Each area in town will be responsible for taking care of their own place and there will be a prize awarded to the best area.

Here are the areas (in no particular order) along with the people who will be coordinating efforts for that area:

- Kerry Road – Joan Ann Brosnan
- Coolock Bridge/Scarteen Lower – Raymond O’Sullivan
- Clanaulie Close – Benny O’Doherty
- Island Road – Dan Murphy
- Barry’s Place/Guineys Tce./ Cill Ard – Georgina O’Doherty
- Castlecourt – Steve Brown
- Lower Rd. – Helena O’Keeffe
- Charleville Rd. – Lisa O’Donoghue
- Town Center – Eilis Hourigan
- Clonfert – Clonfert graveyard clean-up committee
- Priory park/Killowen/Pound Hill – Ollie Dugdale
- The Demesne – Sheila Fitzgerald

Some areas are not represented – see above.  Please let us know if you would be willing to take on the role for your area by contacting any committee member, emailing contact@athtrasna.com or coming along to the meeting on the 3rd of April.
