Clonmellon Tidy Towns Newsletter
First Edition
May 2018

"We have entered our village into the Tidy Towns Competition for the first time since 2009, This is a competition that should inspire our community to pull together and for all to play their part in getting our village ready for judging day.  Being a volunteer allows individuals to practice their passion for the good of their community.  This could be landscaping, built environment, sustainable living, local wildlife or organizing a litter pick up.  We have a lot of work to do and some of the projects we want to undertake will require some time to complete.  We are confident that we can meet these challenges as a group and as a community."

We have plans to do the following

  • Tidy up all plant / flower arrangementspollinator
  • Introduce new bedding / plant arrangements
  • Have 2 new welcome signs made
  • Have a pollinator garden (up at the industrial estate)
  • Have Clean Up weekends / weekdays
  • Build a new feature at the entrance to the village from the Kells road.
  • Have a community garden

When you enter the Tidy Town you have to produce a 3 year plan.  We are working on this and a lot of work has gone into it.  If you would like to contribute to this plan please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please Clean Up After Your Dog

Dog scooping poop 300x201

This is a big problem all around our village and housing estate’s.
People
need to stop and think before they take their dog out for a walk. Our
children walk on our street play in our green areas and this is what they
are playing in, so please clean up after your dog. There is a 3,000 fine
for those who let their dog foul on the streets and green areas, we will
report dog owners who continue to let their dog dirty our footpaths
and green areas.

Under Section 22 of the Litter Pollution Act 1997 it is an offence to allow a dog under your control to foul a public place. This means the owner or person in charge of the dog is required to remove dog faeces and dispose of them in a suitable, sanitary manner.
