Ballyhaunis Tidy Towns was established in 2001 as a sub-committee of Ballyhaunis Community Council. Its purpose is to protect and enhance the appearance and environment of Ballyhaunis town and its environs, and to promote awareness and best practice in caring for our environment.
Monthly meetings take place on the second Wednesday of the month and during the summer months members come together weekly to carry out litter picking, flower planting, weeding, watering and general outdoor activities.
Tidy Towns participates annually in a variety of schemes and initiatives such as National Spring Clean Campaign run by An Taisce in April, Mayo Co. Council’s Litter Action League and Cleaner Community Awards which take place from April to October and the National Tidy Towns Competition which is adjudicated in June and the results are announced in September. In addition the committee organises an art / essay / slogan competition with environmental themes for National School children to foster awareness at an early age.
New members are always welcome anyone wishing to volunteer an hour or two of their time on a regular basis should come along to the monthly meetings in the Parochial Hall on the second Wednesday of each month.
