Traditionally the Tidy Town’s Group main focus has been litter prevention and the beautification of Roscrea. For the past few years however the group has diversified into other areas including public awareness of waste management issues, tourism promotion, community participation and the provision of leisure facilities for all ages.
The work at Glebe Park is costing in excess of €70,000.00. The Tidy Towns Committee are therefore very grateful to the various organisations and individuals that have dug deep into their pockets to support this much needed infrastructure which will enhance the lives of townspeople and visitors alike.
