Tidy Districts 2013

The Awards Evening for the DLR County Council Tidy Districts Competition was held on 12th Sept last. The category for housing estates from 201 to 500 was won by Ardagh Residents Association in Blackrock. Marley Grange has won this award in 2011 and 2012 and we knew it would be difficult to win 3 times in a row.

Regardless the adjudicators’ report gave great praise to the way in which the gardens & houses were maintained and we scored an overall 80% on their scoring system. Quoting the report they stated “Very nice neat and beautifully maintained estate. Houses and gardens maintained to a high standard throughout, several gardens immaculately presented with excellent landscaping features.”

They determined that our biggest failing was due to the low level of community effort from the residents on such occasions as volunteering for watering the plants and levels of involvement on community clean up days.  This is somewhere we would like more support on from the residents in 2014.
