Bray People - - NEWS -

SU­PER­VALU re­tail­ers across Wick­low joined forces as the an­nual Tidy Towns com­pe­ti­tion was launched.

To­masz Paw­lik of Kenny's in Bless­ing­ton and Anne Daly and Paddy Holo­han of Daly's in Grey­stones en­cour­aged com­mu­ni­ties across Wick­low to take part in the com­pe­ti­tion.

‘ The Tidy­Towns Com­pe­ti­tion recog­nises and en­cour­ages the ef­forts of lo­cal people to bring huge ben­e­fits to their com­mu­ni­ties.

‘ Over the last three years over 800 cities, towns and vil­lages through­out the coun­try en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion and I hope that it will be even big­ger and bet­ter this year,' said Phil Ho­gan, Min­is­ter for the En­vi­ron­ment, Com­mu­nity and Lo­cal Govern­ment launch­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

‘ Tidy­Towns has been im­prov­ing the en­vi­ron­ment in which we live for over 56 years and has helped to trans­form the ap­pear­ance of our towns and vil­lages and to fos­ter Ire­land's im­age abroad.'

As well as the main com­pe­ti­tion there are also 11 Spe­cial Com­pe­ti­tions that you can en­ter.

The clos­ing date for re­ceipt of en­tries for this year's com­pe­ti­tions is May 22.
