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.
