Congratulations and thanks to everyone who put in a lot of hard work in June and July to make the estate look great. There was lots of gardening, cleaning, tidying, painting and helping others that helped us win the award. It’s wonderful to see the community spirit to make Balally a great place to live.
While the competition is primarily an anti-litter and anti-graffiti competition, it has evolved over the years and now considers biodiversity, ecological projects and community engagement. At the Awards Ceremony on Wednesday night we got particular praise for the roundabout, our pollinator friendly planting, our links with St Olafs NS and our targetted communications.
