Is your garden or estate worthy of a Tidy Towns Award? That is the question the Athlone Tidy Towns Committee are asking of estates, garden owners, and businesses as they invite entries for this year’s competition.
The competition is run annually by Athlone Tidy Towns Committee and is sponsored by Athlone Municipal District and local businesses. It aims to encourage and promote householders and businesses to take greater pride and interest in their own business premises, gardens, estates, and surrounding areas.
If you wish to enter your garden or estate, an application form must be completed and returned to Athlone Municipal District, Civic Centre, Church Street, by June 30. It is advisable to apply early. The judging will commence during July and August and winners will be announced in early October. The annual award ceremony date and venue will be announced later.
Forms are now available from Dooley’s Westend Flowers on Magazine Road, and from the Civic Centre, Church Street. A form can also be downloaded from the website at www.athlonetidytowns.ie
