The TidyTowns unit of the Department continue to support groups by providing updates and information through the monthly newsletters, social media and through the TidyTowns website.
Many groups have referenced the TidyTowns Handbook for information. This was last updated in 2010. During the last number of months, the TidyTowns unit have, with support from the National Panel of TidyTowns Adjudicators redrafted the TidyTowns Handbook to bring it up to date in line with the current competition categories.
In line with our new sustainable approach, we will not be printing the Handbook, it has been divided into nine separate sections, a general information section and then a section devoted to each of the eight competition categories.
To view the sections of the Handbook, please visit the TidyTowns website at the following link:
From here you can download and save the sections or you can print them off if you wish.
We hope you find the information beneficial as you assist groups working towards the 2022 competition.
Thank you once again for your efforts in assisting TidyTowns Groups to make our towns and villages so inviting and welcoming for all who reside there, work there and for all who choose to visit your part of our wonderful country.
We will be announcing the results of the 2021 competition in November so best of luck to you all.
