Tidy Towns activities in the Parish

Julianstown Tidy Towns Volunteers are continuing their work in and around the village and you can at last see the changes being made.  Twenty Planters have been distributed throughout the village on the approach roads, at Whitecross National School, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, St. Mary’s Church of Ireland, The Lime Kiln and outside the Community Garden.  All the flower beds are getting a makeover.  It’s a lot of work for our Volunteers and if you can help by cleaning the kerbs, it would be greatly appreciated.

Judging has taken place for the An Taisce Green Flag Award for the garden and fingers crossed we get our fourth one.

Judging for Supervalu National Tidy Towns takes place this month and early August will see judging take place for Meath Co. Council’s Pride of Place; this will include the village and housing estates, and shop front.  The Lime Kiln has been entered for Best Shop Front and Best hospitality. Good luck to all.  If you would like to give a hand, please meet in the garden at 10.30 am any Tuesday or Saturday morning.  It’s good fun, you learn lots about gardening and enjoy a cuppa with your friends and neighbours.  A big ‘Go raibh maith agat’ to our volunteers and those on the East Meath Community Employment Scheme – you are making such a difference to our beautiful village of Julianstown.
