Christmas Carols hope to raise a tidy sum

Mainstreet Shercock is set to be brought to life this weekend with Christmas Carols.

The festivity was organised by Shercock Tidy Towns and is expected to be a brilliant evening of singsongs suitable for the whole family.

Taking place on December 4 from 5-7pm, the event is expected to raise much needed funds for the Tidy Towns initiative.

The group, which resurrected last year, had a very successful year making many improvements in the town.

“New members and volunteers joined the group and regular weeding and litter picks were organised throughout the year,” says a volunteer for the group.

Shercock was entered into the Supervalu Tidy Towns competition for the first time in several years.

“As part of the submission, we prepared a three-year strategic plan setting out our intentions and actions to enhance the appearance of Shercock in the coming years. And, while Shercock didn’t win any prizes this time round, we now have a baseline report to build on in the years to come,” Carol Smyth from Shercock Tidy Towns said.

Shercock Tidy Towns also secured funding to carry out a biodiversity plan for the town. A report containing recommendations for the town will be published in January.
