Councillor Casey congratulated all the groups for their achievement. He said, “I am very pleased to be able to take this opportunity to recognize our community groups and the important work they do to improve their environment for the benefit of all citizens. I have no doubt that their work has contributed to, and continues to contribute to, a growing sense of civic pride in their local areas.”

Groups that took part in the Cleaner Greener Communities initiative carried out two clean ups during July, promoted an anti-dog fouling message and raised awareness of food waste recycling in their area. 

All groups were presented with a commemorative certificate and a voucher sponsored by Natural World Products. Carnagat Community Association received a special prize of a handicart which can be used by the group for future clean-up activities.

Ita Gibney, from Newtownhamilton Community Association, also received a certificate from the Chairman on behalf of the group. The award recognised the completion of their project, Jo’s Garden, which was funded through the Council’s Financial Assistance Scheme.
