Support for Tidy Towns

Tidy Towns

Training and Support Programme for Tidy Towns groups in Laois (2019/2020)

Laois Partnership Co has secured funding to deliver a tailored programme of training and supports for Tidy Towns groups in Laois. The programme will be delivered in late 2019/ early 2020 during the “tidy towns off season” when members will have some time to commit to planning.

Programme Deliverables:

  • Opening group seminar (in Portlaoise) led Tidy Towns adjudicator
  • 3 x information sessions (In Portlaoise) covering issues relevant to TT groups (These will be led by a Tidy Towns Adjudicator and an Environmental specialist)
  • 2 x site visits to your community to do a “walkaround” and to discuss issues in your area
  • Clinic session to assist group to refine tidy towns application before submission date in 2020

Additional Resources Provided:

Each participating group will receive:

  • A comprehensive 5-year plan which will be developed in conjunction with the TT adjudicator/ environmental specialist
  • A Tidy Towns map in hard copy and digital copy (This can be annotated and submitted with your application each year. )

Cost:

The initiative will be heavily subsidised with participating tidy towns groups required to make a nominal payment to secure a place on the programme.

What next:

In order to progress the project, we need to get confirmation as to who will be participating in the initiative. We will hold a short public meeting in Portlaoise  to explain further and to identify common requirements of tidy towns groups. This meeting will be held in on Tue 3rd September at 08:00pm in the LOETB Centre of Excellence (Laois GAA) at O’Moore Park, Portlaoise.
