NO POSTERS PLEASE
Ballylongford Tidy Towns is now joining the growing number of Tidy Towns organisations throughout the country requesting that no referendum/election posters be erected within the 50km specified zone on any approach road to and within the village. Posters are a blight on the countryside and streetscape, often a number of them competing for space on the same pole. These posters are also viewed negatively by Tidy Towns Judges. There are more effective methods of communication in 2018.
KERRY COUNTY CLEAN UP
April 14th is fast approaching. Ballylongford Tidy Towns will be set up in the parish hall at 10am coordinating groups and give out gloves and bags, so why not join in ! Maybe some can get a gang together to litter pick and clean up where you live? If that Saturday doesn’t suit there are other days in April that you could organise it for. We can provide you with gloves and bags and arrange for the bags to be collected.
