Who are we?

Swords Tidy Towns volunteers care for the town of Swords. They generate enthusiasm and co-operation in order to enhance the natural and built environment. We plan to use the clear targets set by the Tidy Towns competition to give strong focus in the tasks below


Build strong communication with businesses, residents association, local council and schools to promote our work and to seek their help for the benefit of the community as a whole


Actively seek new volunteers across a broad section of the community & Promote Swords as a town of diversity and inclusiveness


Be a champion of biodiversity and environmental issues
