Fethard Tidy Towns have been awarded 254 marks this year, a steady increase of 14 marks over the last four years.
A substantial amount of work has taken place and we would like to thank everyone for all their help and support in the town.
A special comment was made on the entrance from Cashel with the splendid new trees blending in so well with the mature trees of the area. We were also commended on the lovely finger signage and tourist information boards. The amount of litter and graffiti around the town is also reducing.
Landscaping around the town was described as brilliant with splashes of tasty flowers and scrubs adding freshness and colour to the square. Two new areas on the Grove Road have now been completed with new wild flowers and grass set.
The housing estates were described as nicely presented with impressive displays of scrubs, trees, lawns and flowers. Well done to all involved.
The overall general impression was that it was a pleasure to visit our nice town and that we have great potential for further enhancement and we are making steady progress. Once again thank you to all our sponsors, committee members and the Fethard community for all there outstanding work in 2013.
