Ashford Tidy Towns group has AGM
ASHFORD TIDY Towns held its AGM last Thursday in the Ashford Community Hall.
The meeting was very well attended and there were some great suggestions from the floor for new projects including the establishment of a Junior Tidy Towns to get the children and young adults from the locality involved.
Another well received suggestion was Adopt 50 meters which would involve people taking responsibility to maintain a 50 meter stretch of road frontage.
An update on the Community Park noted that the railings will be completed shortly and after some landscaping it will be ready for opening.
The committee thanked the community for all the support and said the recent race night raised just over €3,000 which is a wonderful boost and will facilitate a lot of planned projects. The chairman and committee were also thanked for their efforts.
One of the projects started in 2013 was Best Kept Business and the results were revealed last at the meeting with Martsworth being named the Best Kept Large Business and The Cafe Latte named the Best Kept Small Business for 2013.
The committee were reelected with Bernard Denver as chairman until September when Jim Costello will take the chair, Christine Carroll as secretary and Jeff Lord as Treasurer.
New members are always welcome.
There will be a litter pick on Saturday April 12, meeting at Ashford National School at 10am.
