The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A FEEL good fac­tor sur­rounded the an­nual Mill­street Tidy Towns Awards pre­sen­ta­tion at a pleas­ant func­tion hosted in the Clara Inn.

The en­thu­si­as­tic Mill­street TTA earned an im­pres­sive six marks in­crease to 314 for 2017. Marks are hard earned, the Mill­street As­so­ci­a­tion thrilled with the rate of progress yet fully aware that chal­lenges and great ef­fort will be re­quired to cre­ate a greater im­pres­sion.

Chair­man Derry Shee­han spoke of the de­light on a pos­i­tive feed­back from the 2017 ad­ju­di­ca­tion.

“Its not be­fore time for we were de­serv­ing of recog­ni­tion, to add ex­tra marks is not easy and its not about just pick­ing up lit­ter. To make fur­ther progress will de­mand that ex­tra ef­fort and the help from across the com­mu­nity,” he said.

Re­flect­ing on the 2017 ad­ju­di­ca­tion and to add marks in spe­cific ar­eas, Mill­street TTA aim to im­prove bio­di­ver­sity such as devel­op­ing St Anna’s Church in ad­di­tion to a pol­li­na­tor park on Dr­is­hane Road.

Thanks were ex­tended to all in­volved on help­ing achieve an ex­cep­tional mark at lit­ter con- trol with thanks also ex­tended to FAS, Mill­street Mens Shed, Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents at Mill­street Com­mu­nity School and the Dr­is­hane Com­mu­nity.

A num­ber of other ex­cit­ing projects are in the pipe­line and un­der con­sid­er­a­tion, all ca­pa­ble of en­hanc­ing the im­age of Mill­street to in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors and of­fer­ing im­prove­ment for the ben­e­fit of the Mil­ll­street com­mu­nity.
