Love where you live logoThe 2016 Mayo Litter Action League June Results are in. The Swinford judging took place sometime from Monday the 6th of June, to Thursday the 30th of June. This is Swinford’s first year in the Mayo Litter Action league competition and the format has changed slightly from previous years.

Each town and village in the competition is awarded €1,000 to begin with. Each item of litter seen on the day of judging costs €1, which is then deducted from your starting fund. The more items of litter found, the higher the cost, and the more we loose! In last months judging we again lost another €130 and were going into the month of July with a remaining balance of €610.

Swinford Tidy Towns meet as usual every Wednesday evening at 7 and every Saturday morning at 11am. Meet at the “No Name Club” on Chapel St.  We also ask all the business’s if you would download the June results and display them on your premises for your customers to view.
