Local businesses, sporting organisations, clubs, estates and schools in Castlebar will be awarded their Tidy Towns prizes at a special presentation night in the TF Royal Hotel on Friday November 6 at 8pm.
This follows the town’s success of the past year when Castlebar reached the last four in the Best Kept Towns Competition. Castlebar also won a special architectural award in the national competition.
There are many categories for which awards will be made and which has ensured that the judges were busy over the past few weeks. All businesses are invited and who knows, your shop, club, estate, school, etc, could be a winner on the night.
Considerable progress was made on many fronts during the year. The continuing success of the schools in acquiring Green Flags, the effort of the various sporting organisations to clean up after events, the efforts of the business communities as well as the excellent effort of the many residents’ associations all helped to create a cleaner and healthier environment.
It is hoped that the adoption of a three year plan in conjunction with the Town Council will help to push Castlebar further up the ladder in the annual Tidy Towns competition. With four years of improving results, Castlebar could now be positioned to make a big community effort in the coming year. A little help from many will lighten the burden, so the committee are asking for as many as possible to turn up at the TF Royal Hotel on Friday November 6 at 8pm.
