TULLOW TIDY TOWNS
DTA Tullow Tidy Towns Committee would like to thank everyone who has supported and continues to support our Tidy Towns efforts. In particular we would like to thank the Committee members, our Volunteers, those who took part in our competitions, the many residents associations and traders. Thanks also to the CCDP Rural Social Scheme, FAS CE Scheme participants and supervisors, the CCDP sponsored TUS workers and supervisors as well as our three special volunteers. Special thanks to Pat Harrington and Brendan Dowling of the Tullow Area Engineer's Office as well as everyone at the Community and Enterprise section of Carlow County Council.
If you are visiting the grave of a loved one at St. Patrick's Cemetery please bring home all debris etc. you remove from your family plot rather than 'dumping' it at the cemetery and expecting someone else to clean up behind you.
Tidy Towns isn't just for the months of March through to September it is an all year round effort for the Tidy Towns Committee.
We look forward to the completion of the Tullowbeg Road, a re-vamp of the Inner Relief Road car park and the erection of street signage etc. in January. We wish you and yours a very Happy Christmas and a tidy and Peaceful New Year. Don't forget you can re-cycle all your used bottles and tin cans for free at the Re-cycling Centre next door to Frazer's Garage.
READY FOR WINTER?
If Ireland gets another severe winter are you ready? If your water pipes froze during last winter have you insulated them properly since; have you moved them further underground to protect your water supply and have you put a plastic bag filled with straw over your stopcock located on the footpath outside your house to prevent it from freezing?
No – then you risk losing your water supply this winter if there is a hard freeze.
You (not Carlow County Council) are responsible for your water supply from the stopcock at the footpath back to your home. Be Winter Ready.
See information on the website – www.winterready.ie which gives valuable information in the form of a household check list. Many of the local shops are stocking rock salt and granulated salt in 5kg and 25kg bags at reasonable prices.
Tullow Traders D.T.A. Tullow Traders wish to say a sincere thanks to everyone who supported or was involved in the organisation of a very successful Christmas Festival 2013. We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Joyous New Year.
