The beautiful village of Currow and its caretakers will take great encouragement from the 2014 Tidy Towns adjudicator’s report.
There isn’t an aspect of the report on anything, within the group’s capabilities, that doesn’t get an enthusiastic thumbs-up.
Only the bumpiness of a stretch of roadway in the village drags a bit of a grouse from the adjudicator during the visit on June 11th.
A selection of remarks in the report will give the long-standing committee there a huge boost and will leave them in little doubt but that they’re well on the right track for the years ahead.
“It is good to have the children so interested in the great work that you are doing in the meadow, it is nice now and we appreciate your statement that this is ongoing and a great hobby for some eager local people.”
“The five bins at the recycling area were spotlessly clean and well presented. Again we see that the local youth club are doing good work by working on picking up the litter on the approach roads.”
I admired the great work done at the pump house and at other locations where property was damaged in the storm. I was impressed at the how well organised this village is and it shows that you are getting good co-operation from the business houses and local people.”
“You could organise a workshop on composting to further enlighten the people on how to do it properly, for instance by mixing the green waste with brown hedge trimmings and turning the material occasionally.”
“I visited the two estates, Park More and Lake View and admired nice young and mature trees; the people have their houses well presented. There are splendid houses all around and the Parkmore House is special.”
“There are really nice private houses that had great displays of shrubs, flowers, trees and lawns and all of these together with your efforts show Currow at its best. You love your village.”
