Anti Litter Competition

The Anti Litter Competition for 2017 is beginning on

Monday 8th May 2017. T hat is this coming Monday. As you are all aware I am sure, Millstreet Town won 1st Prize in Category A. So will we make it 2 in a row. I reckon we can do that no bother. So grab your sweeping brushes, shovels, gloves and bin bags and as always get out and clean, clean, clean. The evenings are only fab all this week so no excuses. Why not rope in a couple of the neighbours on your street and make a right good go of it. You will be done in no time. I will post the schedule of the particular areas that will judged just as soon as I get them. Any groups or any volunteers that would like help or a loan of equipment for their litter pick up please do not hesitate to contact me here on the page and I will sort out gear for you.  Fingers crossed we will be top notch again this year.

Bronze Medal Returns

Great news came from The Helix this afternoon. Not only did Millstreet earn an extra 6 points this year in the National Tidy Town Competition but we are to see the return of a Bronze Medal. This is an amazing result for the town. The report has been loaded up on the website and full comments and pand-the-winner-is-1-600-x-600oints can be seen from this page. http://millstreettidytown.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/2016-County-Cork_North-Millstreet-480.pdf.  Millstreet Tidy Town Association would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved. Without a strong community spirit and a stalwart of volunteers this result would not be possible. Tidy Town is just one simple way that we can showcase how wonderful a place Millstreet is. We can hold our heads high safe in the knowledge that all the hard work that people are putting into to keeping this town a beautiful place to live is paying off. So hats off and big congratulations to all. Pat and Noreen were in attendance representing the Millstreet Tidy Town Association this afternoon and I will post pictures of this fantastic afternoons result when I receive them.

Calling all Volunteers

main_image (371 x 323)It’s a beautiful Sunday sunny morning and looking at tomorrow’s weather the forecast is jus as nice. So bearing this in mind some of our volunteers are going to give the picnic area on Drishane Road a little spruce up. So I am hoping that we can get some of the lovely people of Millstreet Town to come and help also. It will take half the time to do if we have plenty of bodies. All you need to bring is a paintbrush and your best Picasso impression. Young and not so young are all invited.  So tomorrow evening from 6.30pm meeting @ the picnic area on Drishane Road. See you there.

Calling All Volunteers

1284869 (366 x 470)Every year the Millstreet Tidy Town Association plant all the beautiful flowers that you see around our picturesque town. For example, in The Square, outside the Credit Union and down Main Street. As you can appreciate it is a mammoth task to get all these flowers watered. So we are looking for a little bit of help from all you lovely people. If there is a planter or flower box outside your home or business premises, please, please can the poor wee flowers a drop of water. They are beginning to show signs of wilting already due to the fact that we have fab weather over the last week or so. There are water butts in various locations in town from which water can be accessed.  Anybody who wants to get in contact please us here on the page.

untitled (299 x 531)Drum roll please…. First round results are in for the Litter Challenge 2016 are in. I am absolutely delighted and so proud to announce that Millstreet are first with a result of 992.3.

This is  a massive achievement, if this momentum can be kept going there is no reason why Millstreet should not place first place for the entire Litter Challenge.

So keep up the good work everybody, the next judging period began  Monday 23rd May to Wednesday 1st June with particular focus on Murphy’s Terrace. Remember just a little makes a huge difference, even something as little as tidying up outside your front garden makes a huge difference.
