The Tidy Towns judges will be winging their way to Roundwood any day now. The hanging baskets will be erected on the poles in the village shortly. Thanks to Terry Kavanagh for his tireless work in making up the baskets and maintaining them throughout the summer. A big shout out to all the businesses and residents who have great floral displays on show and are touching up the paint work on their premises. The village is looking great. If you have a bit of time to do some kerbside weeding, litter picking or to put a splash of paint on that wall or fence in or around your patch it would help greatly. Every little helps! Many thanks
