LETTER: Thank you, Horsham

Sir, – Tidy Towns Committee Horsham conveys our thanks to the Horsham community and our media for the wonderful support we received for the visit of the National Judge to Horsham on Tuesday, May 17 .

As chair of Horsham Tidy Towns, I was most encouraged to have our very proactive combined media, giving advance advice of the judging and encouraging a ‘tidy up’ and also meeting, discussing  and reporting our entry details in the Keep Australia Beautiful, Sustainability and Tidy Towns Award Program.

National judge Gail Langley advised me that the involvement of all our Horsham community, both in the presentation of our city and also in the various community activities we highlighted to her, places us in a very competitive position against our five interstate communities and town challengers.

Gail visited 11 community groups and projects during her nine hour inspection and we thank all who took time to spend with her and tell the remarkable stories that Horsham has to offer.

The ‘English speaking new community ladies sewing and training group’ making Boomerang Bags while learning English, and Agricultural Society major amenities improvements, were two projects of the many that made a significant impression on the judge. The outcome of our community effort will be announced on July 30 at a national meeting of all competitors at Hastings. Thank you Horsham!

David Eltringham

Chair, Horsham Tidy Towns Committee
