The “Tidy Tullamore” initiative run by the Credit Union, in partnership with Tullamore Town Council and the Tidy Towns Association has seen a remarkable transformation of the residential areas of the town over the past 14 years. Local residents’ groups have put in tremendous efforts at enhancing their local environments through landscaping, maintenance and clean-ups. Local businesses and schools have also engaged in this programme.
The competition continues to grow in popularity year on year. It has been instrumental in mobilising local community effort and generating a level of pride and interest throughout residential areas of the town.
