Tidy Towns Update

This is Week 2 of collecting litter around Millstreet, but no change in cigarette butts – the town would have been knocked out of the Anti-Litter Challenge for these butts alone!

Millstreet Tidy Towns would like to thank those who have helped so far, there was a big improvement outside pubs, thank you!  The butts in the picture below were collected all around town, not outside the pubs!

The Litter Challenge competition starts this week, May 13th to May 22nd. Judging begins in Tanyard Wood moving up into town. Judging can be at anytime, any day.

We really appreciate everyone’s help so far, don’t forget we are always looking for more helpers to help show off your town’s beauty!
