Kilkenny County Council have announced the winners of our 2020 Tidy Estates Competition. The aim of this competition is to encourage the residents of Kilkenny County Council’s Housing Estates to take an active role in improving the physical appearance of their estate.
The competition encourages resident associations across the City and County to plan estate management works within their estates. Unfortunately, the annual Awards Ceremony that would take place as a thank you to all cannot be held this year due to the Level 5 restrictions of the COVID 19 pandemic.
The Council appreciates the ongoing work that all of the volunteers actively do to improve the physical appearance of their estates and by doing so have contributed in a very positive way to their communities.
On the announcement of the awards, Cathaoirleach of Kilkenny County Council, Cllr. Andrew McGuinness said: “I congratulate the winners and acknowledge the great work carried out in the estates by all the participating groups during a very challenging year. You are all to be commended for your sense of pride in the area in which you live.”
