Bray People - - View From The Street -

AS THIS year’s re­sult for the Tidy Town Awards have just been an­nounced, Newtownmountkennedy and District Tidy Towns Com­mit­tee have al­ready started their cam­paign for 2009.

They held an ex­cit­ing ta­ble quiz last Thurs­day night at the Moun­tkennedy Inn in a bid to start fundrais­ing for next year’s com­pe­ti­tion.

‘We are very happy with the score we got in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion as it’s the high­est that we have got­ten since we first en­tered the tidy towns seven years ago. In the past seven years we have gone from 177 to 224 points,’ said Alan Stephens Chair­man of the com­mit­tee.

Last Thurs­day’s ta­ble quiz had 14 ta­bles and ¤600 was raised.

The Nolan fam­ily who are well known for run­ning the Post Of­fice were win­ners of the first prize tro­phy.

There was also a raf­fle on the night with some fan­tas­tic prizes spon­sored by lo­cal busi­nesses.

Ev­ery­body at the quiz are great sup­port­ers of the Tidy Towns com­mit­tee and are looking for­ward to the cam­paign for next year.

‘This year we have had alot of lo­cal sup­port from the vol­un­teers on the com­mit­tee, FAS staff, the scouts and the res­i­dents group. We hope that they will con­tinue to sup­port us this year as they have been detri­men­tal to our suc­cess,’ said Alan.

The Newtownmountkennedy and District Tidy Towns Com­mit­tee are al­ways looking for vol­un­teers with new and fresh ideas.

If any­body is in­ter­ested in join­ing them they can con­tact Alan on (087) 6677377.
