Waterford might be out of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, but we’re still in the running to be Ireland’s Cleanest City! Back in June, we asked sporting clubs in the city to get involved and help keep Waterford Beautiful in association with Tom Murphy Volkswagen, Waterford Council and WLR. The first round of clean ups took place in July and each team did a phenomenal job.
The second and final round of clean ups is taking place this August from the 13th – 16th and the dates and times are below. If you can, please try and get involved and help support your local club and community. If you can’t make the official clean up, we’re asking that if you see a piece of litter on the ground don’t leave it for someone else to pick up.
Awards Evening Wednesday August 22nd
Each club will receive €500 for their participation thanks to Tom Murphy Volkswagen. If that’s not enough, the club that does the best job at cleaning their area will also receive a bonus prize! Judging will take place after the final round of clean ups, with Official Tidy Towns Judges having the difficult task of deciding who should be given the overall prize. The awards will take place in Tom Murphy Volkswagen‘s Showroom on Wednesday, August 22nd at 5:30pm.
