Ballymun Tidy Towns News
The Ballymun Tidy Towns committee are getting ready for another busy year of working with the community to make Ballymun a cleaner, greener and safer place.
And they need lots of help…… from YOU!
The Ballymun Tidy Towns committee was founded in 2005 and consists of representatives from across the Ballymun community.
Tidy Towns is not purely a ‘neat and tidy’ competition. It also incorporates wider reaching objectives including overall community approach in various activities such as neighbourhood clean ups, gardening, community gardening, food growing, promotion of healthy living (eg. Sli na Slainte’s), encouragement of nature/biodiversity, Green schools, recycling, resource recovery, Smarter Travel, Climate Change initiatives and much much more.
Each year the committee runs a series of competitions. This year’s competitions will include
- Best Garden (for individual gardens)
- Best Kept Area (for local resident groups)
- Best Shop Front (for local business)
- Beautiful Spaces (youth groups, centre’s & schools)
The Ballymun Tidy Towns Committee would encourage people throughout the community to get involved with the Tidy Towns initiatives in Ballymun.
