Litter Free Environment:

Remember a Litter Free Environment is the responsibility of all of us and just not the Tidy Towns Group. If you have litter- bin it and if you see litter- just pick it up. We are seeking Road & Estate volunteers to take part in our 2018 Litter Pick campaign. Litter Picks will take place on the first Saturday of each month commencing on 3rd March up to and including first Saturday in October. Two volunteers per road or estate would mean a maximum of 4 Litter Picks per year per volunteer. Many hands make light work! Thank You.
