Tidy Towns - Judging can take place anytime now. We don’t know when. We are looking for everyone to lend a hand. Please continue to be litter conscious. If it’s your litter, take it home with you. If you see rubbish on the ground, pick it up. If you see someone littering, check them in a nice way. Don’t wait for someone else to do it.
