Pride of Place
Newport Tidy Towns are delighted that Newport has been nominated by Mayo County Council to participate in this year's 'Pride of Place' and look forward to working with the businesses and organisations in the town to ensure a strong showing. The extra work required for the 'Pride of Place' judging complements existing commitments for both Tidy Towns and Litter League and this synergy will benefit Newport in all of their competitions, as the following quote from the Co-operation Ireland website illustrates :
"The Pride of Place Competition recognises and celebrates the vital contributions that community partnerships make to society. The focus is on people coming together to shape, change and enjoy all that is good about their local area. It differs from other similar projects in that they specifically recognise the involvement of the local community in all aspects of rural and urban regeneration including, promoting social cohesion, involvement in planning, the promotion of heritage and environmental awareness."
