Tidy Towns Volunteer Hours will be back on 24 April

20160718_195800

It must be summer! The ever-popular volunteer hours organised by Annascaul Tidy Towns Action Group (ATAAG) will be restarting on Monday 24 April. A cheerful band of civic-minded volunteers meet at 7pm outside the Community Centre and find out just how much tidying and cleaning can be done in an hour.  It’s always good fun and it helps make the village look good plus it’s a good chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

Bring whatever tools you have, but most of all bring a can do attitude!
