National Pride of Place – Public Meeting

0

Help celebrate all that is good and unique about our town.

Kildare Town has been chosen to represent the County in the National Pride of Place competition for 2013.

There will be an information/public meeting on the 8 May at 7.30 pm in Kildare Heritage Centre (Market House), Market Square to explore how we as a community might showcase our town. All are welcome.

The competition focuses on how the community comes together to shape, change and enjoy what their local area has to offer. It can help galvanise our efforts to build an even stronger community. While it is a public meeting we would appreciate if each organisation could send even one representative.

Sometimes we cannot see the wood for the trees and we fail to appreciate how far we have come or how much is on offer. A recent comment by some UK visitors to the town (April 2013) testifies to just that, “Our first visit to Kildare was twenty years ago. [It] was in a bad state, closed and dreary. The Improvement to the town is incredible, excellent Square, easy parking, fresh and inviting. Kildare has vastly improved.”

None of the above would have been possible without the community coming together. Think of all the positive work happening through our public representatives, local sports clubs, festival committees, historic society, residents committees, tidy towns, volunteer and other agencies who are working together to move the town forward. Let us tell it to the world; we are proud of our town – 7.30 pm Wed. 8 May in Kildare Heritage Centre (Market House), Market Square.
