It’s never too late to mention Christmas, as the Tidy Towns Festive Window Winners are announced

Tidy Towns Waterford City has announced the winners of their first annual ‘Festive Window Dressing’ competition. Designed around the Christmas Gift Tag ‘Do your #BITT for #Winterval’ and supported by Tidy Towns, Waterford Council, Waterford Chamber and Waterford Business Group.

The winning windows were Altitude, in Ballybricken and The Granville Hotel, on Meagher’s Quay. With the judging panel unable to split the two businesses, each will received €250 of Waterford Shopping Vouchers.

“It’s never too early to mention Santa Claus and with around 300 days to next Christmas,” said a tongue in cheek Michael Garland, Chair of Tidy Towns, “We are delighted that both Altitude and The Granville Hotel have been recognised for their wonderful festive effort last year.

The City must put is best foot forward during important anchor festivals such as Winterval. And we are delighted that for future years we will once again be tying in with Tommie and the Winterval team, to expand this event right across the whole City. It is hoped that as Tidy Towns organically gathers momentum, more and more businesses will come on board to support our efforts.

It is hoped that in the very near future we will be launching our Tidy Town plans to the wider public and groups, such as Resident Associations. We need people and groups to come on board, if they are interested, and be part of a future winning team.

Keep an eye out in ALL the local media for future adverts and announcements about the Tidy Towns official launch meeting.”

In the meantime the Tidy Towns team are asking businesses and members of the public to look after and enjoy the City, as we all need to live, work and play here. The next window competition is scheduled for the Summer and is sponsored by Morris’s DIY.

“Everyone can and should do their #BITT. We must #KeepDiscovering OUR City” said Michael Garland.
