Tydavnet Tidy Towns group has been very busy over the weekend, and a lot has been done recently in preparation for the national tidy towns competition. Tree planting took place on Saturday 26th May – native planting supports more native plants, birds, animals and insects than an exotic tree. Our native trees are also a part of Ireland’s rich natural heritage.

The allotment plot up the Graveyard Lane has been rotovated and is ready for gardening. There is still time to plant and be able to eat your own fresh produce not to mention the therapeutic value that gardening gives. Don’t worry if you are a beginner as there is plenty of advice available. Contact Seamus McCarvill in Tydavnet, or Micheal O Hare on 0863255627.
