Get Involved

Getting involved is easy.  The beauty of the AbbeyleixTidy Towns initiaitive is that it is up to you to decide how much time you can give. It might simply be a decision to tidy around your own house, organise a clean up of your neighbourhood with your neighbours or set up a residents committee. There are also many scheduled clean up days you can take part in as well as competitions to enter. We are always looking for volunteers and welcome new members to our committee. The choice is yours.

We recently asked a national tidy towns expert to look around Abbeyleix and to make suggestions on how we would improve our performance in the National Tidy Towns Competition. Click on the following link see his report and see if would be able to carry out/ help with any of his recommendations. Do you have any additional ideas?
