Tidy Towns

An attempt is being made to resurrect the Tidy Towns group for Athea again. If anyone in the village is interested in getting involved with a view to setting up a committee please call to Lal Browne at his office. It would make a tremendous difference to the village if enough volunteers could be recruited as there are loads of improvements that could be made here if people were willing to give a bit of time over the spring/summer months.
