Emo Tidy Towns committee were happy to increase their marking in the recent national Tidy Towns competition. Judging took place in early June before most of our painting make-over was complete. We wish to thank all our volunteers who worked over the summer months to keep the village looking so well, which was noted in a very positive judges report. Please keep up the good work and keep our village clean and tidy.
