Tidy Towns 2017 competition is now open for entries

The Tidy Towns 2017 competition, is now open for entries.
 
The competition is administered by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs it is sponsored by SuperValu. The Tidy Towns competition encourages voluntary activity and community participation, to help to make villages and towns better and more attractive places to live, work and do business in.  
 
This year, towns and villages across Ireland are being asked to further grow the SuperValu Tidy Towns green culture through a new competition – the Imagine, Create and Enjoy Upcycling Challenge.
 
Tidy Towns committees will be invited to use their DIY skills to upcycle and recycle items such as palettes, old tyres and furniture into useful and beautiful community creations.
 
Local SuperValu retailers will provide committees with materials to support their efforts, and there will also be a series of instructional videos available online, with an overall prize for the winning committee.
 
The closing date for receipt of entries for this year’s competitions is May 25th.
 
The SuperValu Tidy Towns competition can be obtained from the Tidy Towns Unit in your local County Council office or from the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs (Telephone 096-24309) or by visiting www.tidytowns.ie  or www.supervalu.ie.
