Sligo Tidy Towns introduced a Junior Tidy Towns committee for the first time in 2015.
The new group built on the Sligo Tidy Schools competition held in 2014, and has worked hard to help foster a deeper understanding amongst the younger generation of the role Tidy Towns can play in enhancing local civic pride and community life.
The 2017 group is made up of Transition Year students from four of the main secondary schools in the Sligo area.
The participating schools are:
Each school has two representatives on the Junior Tidy Towns committee, which meets on a monthly basis, just like the Sligo Tidy Towns management team.
The Junior Tidy Towns committee also liaises closely with the Primary Schools in the Sligo town area.
This group is being coordinated by Mary Naughton, who’s the Sligo Tidy Towns Schools Project team leader.
