Results for the Local Tidy Towns competition 2016:
Shop front awards:
1st Place; Walsh’s Pharmacy
Always clean and tidy while dealing with lots of foot passengers and a very busy business, which uses lots of reusable forms of storage and transportation of goods but yet never causes any infringement on the day to day working of the Main Street. The shop facade is always clean and presentable.
2nd Place; Post office
Great looking building that shows a great pride in itself. Well kept and well maintained and a great welcome to the town.
3rd Place; Glessons bar.
Clean, presentable, welcoming. All the things a bar should be. Shows a great sense of community with its team flags. Clean and tidy footpaths are always a plus to any Main Street.
1st Place; Ballyclare road
A beautiful tree lined road with a fabulous sense of history, an area where the town truly begins. A really well maintained area. A true jewel in the crown of the town.
2nd Place; Priory view (Front Row)
Well maintained large communal area with well kept homes and gardens. A sense of pride & community about the area is clear to be seen.
3rd Place (Tie) Delvin Park
A welcome that shows a great sense of pride in its town and country with a beautiful tri colour flowing in the summer breeze. The mature cherry blossom trees are a beautiful addition to well established homes.
For a new development it has a great air of been part of the area for a far long time. A great addition to the town.
