The Rathangan Tidy Town’s committee is thrilled with its performance in this year’s competition gaining six marks to bring it back up to a total of 315 marks earning a silver medal.

“We are delighted with the marks increase,” said committee chairman, John Fullam.

“In the coming week’s we will be embarking on a public awareness drive here locally to make people more aware about Tidy Towns and what we do. We have numerous trophies that we have won over the years and we hope to put them on display at the RYARC centre.”

The town gained a mark in each of the following categories - Community Involvement and Planning, the Built Environment and Streetscape, Residential Streets and Housing Areas, and Tidiness and Litter Control.

There was a two mark gain in Sustainable Waste and Resource Management.

John paid tribute to all the volunteers and the hard working committee. He singled out Arthur Hutchinson for special mention who liaised with the community service programme, which proved very successful.
