WITH the results of the annual tidy towns competition still sinking in across the county, most local tidy towns groups are enjoying a well earned break. But not the diligent folk in Athea. They are already setting the wheels in motions to finance next year's clean up.
In a first venture of its kind for the group, members are planning to host a fashion show at the end of September to raise funds for next year's endeavours and are encouraging locals to get on board for what promises to be a fantastic night of fashion.
The event is set to take place at the Con Colbert Memorial Hall this Saturday, September 28, where some of the top fashion outlets from West Limerick and North Kerry will showcase their Autumn/Winter collections.
Tickets are priced at €10 and can be booked in advance by phoning Margaret (087 1225701) or Eileen (087 9848247). Organisers will also hold a raffle throughout the night for some top class spot prizes, proceeds from which will also be going to the local tidy towns group for various projects in the months ahead.
