Why TidyTowns matters to the community

Why TidyTowns matters to the community

The TidyTowns initiative has done much to change the landscape of Ireland’s villages, towns and cities since the very first competition was launched in 1958. But it’s more than a municipal ‘beauty contest’ - it’s an important civic and economic initiative which aims to have a long term impact on the nation’s communities. With over 800 entries each year, TidyTowns involves hundreds of thousands of volunteers as well as councils all across the country.

Patience Atkinson-Gregory is MD of horticultural suppliers Amberol, who work with councils and TidyTowns groups supplying products to create floral displays and improve litter collection. Patience would like to submit an article discussing the TidyTowns initiative and its importance to Irish communities, including tips for a successful entry.The article could consider:

  • The history and role of the TidyTowns competition
  • Advice on entering TidyTowns
  • The importance of landscaping and maintaining public areas
  • Tips on creating effective floral displays and litter prevention
  • Environmental issues and how entries can be made more environmentally friendly


If you would be interested in commissioning this free article, please contact me to specify any particular theme, word count or deadline that you may have.

Alternatively, if you would like to contact Patience with a view to getting her input for any relevant in-house articles, do let me know.
