BALLINGARRY TIDY TOWNS

BALLINGARRY TIDY TOWNS

We do not know when we are being judged for the Tidy Towns, so we have to be vigilant every day. We still meet every Saturday morning at 10am outside Martin Hanarahan’s. Please continue to be litter conscious. If it’s your litter, take it home with you. If you see rubbish on the ground, pick it up. Don’t wait for someone else to do it. We should all take responsibility for a cleaner environment.
