Trim got judged for the Meath Pride Of Place Competition on Thursday the 24th of July, our judge Billy Flynn was very impressed with all the work that is going to make Trim look well this year. He was especially impressed with the before & after photos of the near feature on the Dublin side of Autopoint garage. Trim Tidy Towns were donated an old agricultural seeder, which was painted up and installed in a bed of pebble. There’s some more improving of the feature to happen, but we are very happy with how it’s turned out. Credit must go to Pearse Johnston, Gary Clarke, Peter Connor & Ciaran Allen for cleaning up & painting the seeder. Eamonn also did a great job installing the pebble bed, with help from his brother Michael & from Ciaran Allen. Eamonn with more help from Ciaran, has reclaimed the hedge of wild roses and grass verge that leads up the feature. Well done to all involved, as it really makes a good impression on the busiest approach road into Trim.

The town has been awash with floral colour all summer and is visually the better for it. However, keep the flowers fed and watered is a full time job. Our many hanging baskets are been maintained by Matthew Shiels, helped by Pearse Johnston, Michael Farrell, Robert Byrne and Michael Kenny. Our 11 flower tours are being maintained by Louis Gunning and Jimmy Ryan of Royal Window Cleaning. These men deserve much credit for their work.

We held our annual Tidy Towns BBQ over the August Bank Holiday Weekend and it was enjoyed by all despite the bad weather, thanks to some marquees & Vincent Adair’s entertainment. The following needed to be thanked for their help, donations & assistance: Peter Higgins, Clive & Billy Wilson of the Bounty Bar, Dave Brady of Sally Rogers, Steven Nally of Supervalu, Tod O’Loughlin and Aileen Robinson, of the White Lodge B&B, Willy Mahon, electrician, Jimmy Ryan, Robert Lynch of Lynch’s Pub, Vincent Adair, Rodney Leonard of the Malt House Pub.
