DRANGAN TIDY TOWNS - Congratulations and well done to all volunteers who assisted in preparing our village for this years Tidy Towns Competition. We gained 5 points on last year, and great credit is due to all concerned.
Efforts were commended, particularly this year because of the wet spring and summer.
“ The approach roads to Drangan were pleasant and welcoming. We noted your efforts at highlighting area of interest with floral displays. The school should be proud of its achievement of two green flags.”
A lot done......a lot more to do! More volunteers are vital, so that this progress can be maintained.
BE PROUD OF YOUR VILLAGE!
