Tidy Towns

Tidy Town 50th HERE

River Trust Clean Up  ... HERE

Excellent work and huge thanks to all community volunteers for attending our annual An Taisce spring clean up on Saturday morning around Emy Lough, Mountain River and Emyvale environs.  Once again two skips were filled full of rubbish and still a few other areas left to do another litter-pick. Many thanks also to our Minister Heather Humphreys for visiting and for her continued support to our beautiful area.

***IMPORTANT REMINDER***

PLEASE NOTE: Emyvale Tidy Towns requests that no advertising signs of any description be erected on any of the approach roads to Emyvale Village or in the Village. These signs were noted in a previous adjudication report and cost us valuable points. Also they are an obstruction for grass cutting. Any signs placed along the approach roads will be removed by the county council at the request of Emyvale Tidy Towns committee. We appreciate your support in this matter.

May 5th/8th Update HERE

 ***IMPORTANT REMINDER***

PLEASE NOTE: Emyvale Tidy Towns request that no advertising signs are erected on any of the approach roads to Emyvale Village.  These signs were noted in last year's adjudication report and cost us valuable points.  Also they are an obstruction for grass cutting. Any signs placed along the approach roads will be removed by the county council at the request of Emyvale Tidy Towns committee. We appreciate your support in this matter.

Quick update...

1. Both our main Tidy Towns and Water and Communities Special Award applications have been submitted.  Tidy Towns adjudicators will begin their judging from early June. We are encouraging individuals and businesses to please make an extra special effort to keep their premises tidy and litter-free. All efforts will go towards our final marks in the national competition.

2. No Sign Policy . Despite our best efforts on this, it appears there is not much respect for what the Tidy Towns committee are trying to achieve in keeping the village 'signage free '. We have lost many marks in previous years for signs. It was very disappointing and discouraging to see a multitude of various signs stuck up over the past weekend and over the last few weeks. We would appreciate if everyone could spread the word that we have a 'NO SIGN POLICY' for all approach roads to Emyvale Village and this includes the Main Street.

3. On behalf of our committee many thanks to John and Patricia for attending the community grant council presentations yesterday evening in the Four Seasons Hotel, Monaghan. Many thanks also to Monaghan County Council and congratulations to other groups in our area, who where also presented with grants.

4. Many thanks to Patricia and Karen for attending on our behalf the Pollinator Workshop on May 10th in the Westenra Hotel,  Monaghan. Special thanks to Monaghan Tidy Towns for hosting this event. More news about this at our next meeting.
