Wexford Tidy Towns was established in 2000. We are a voluntary group passionate about making Wexford the best it can be. Our aim has been, and continues to be, to make Wexford a cleaner, greener and more attractive town. Working closely with Wexford Council who offers both practical and expert support. We also have a number of sponsors and associates whose help is greatly appreciated.
We achieved bronze awards in 2012, 2014, 2015 and silver awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018 National Tidy Towns Awards a clear signal, if one were needed, that we are on the right track. Wexford Tidy Towns have also been awarded the Gum Litter Taskforce Award, Supervalu Diversity Award and Clean Air Award in the Tidy Town Competitions. These are great achievements and ones of which we are justifiably proud! That said, we need the continued support of the public and retailers if we are to improve on these fine results.
We also work with local groups and schools in Wexford. There is a biodiversity committee which does a terrific job at “Greening” Wexford, while Wexford in Bloom runs in the Summer months working with the retailers to brighten up the town with a wonderful selection of flowers. Many of the local schools are also involved in the Green Schools program. Find out more about projects we are involved in here.
Much of the volunteer work at the cleanups involves litter-picking, planting, sweeping, weeding, watering plants and painting. We usually meet twice a month, at 10am, Saturdays. Meeting points vary but the more common ones are Crescent Quay, An Tobar/Westgate Centre and Whitemill. We would love you to join us! Get on our mailing list or check Facebook or Twitter for details of the next cleanup.
If you have a few hours to spare on Saturday mornings or want to find out more, please contact us.
