The good folk in the Strandhill Community Development Association (SCDA) were in contact about their ongoing efforts in the National Tidy Towns Competition.

In an effort to encourage participation from local residents througout the village – there is is going to be a competition with a prize fund of up to €1,000 under categories of best kept estate and the most improved estate.

From the letter to residents sent by SCDA

As you may be aware, the Strandhill Community Development Association (SCDA) re-entered Strandhill into the National Tidy Towns Competition in 2009 following a long absence (1996) . The entry and general work in common areas was completed  by a small number of dedicated people last year.  In order to encourage participation throughout the village, we are offering prizes for estates that are willing participate in the competition through improvements in their own estate and associated road frontage in the village .

In this regard, we have written to all local businesses seeking a small contribution of €50 to assist with the prize fund in addition to our own sources of funding.

We are hoping to have a prize fund of between €500 and €1,000 available to local resident associations that enter the competition. We hope to give prizes for the best kept estate and the most improved estate.

A member of our committee will be in touch with you in the forthcoming weeks and the closing date for entry is 14th May with adjudication on or before 16th July 2010.

The format of the competition will involve photographic evidence of your area/estate at the time of entry and a brief description of activities/improvements undertaken over the following 8 weeks.
