Johnstown Tidy Towns

Johnstown Tidy Towns is a voluntary group established with the aim of improving our area and creating a clean and litter free environment for us to enjoy. Johnstown Tidy Towns have entered the Tidy Towns competition on two occasions (2017 and 2018). Our 2018 results represented a 6% improvement on our previous year results and this was recognised by an Endeavour  award being presented to Johnstown Tidy Towns. Our report is available here. Johnstown Tidy Towns have entered the 2019 Tidy Towns competition. This will be their third year to be involved.
