Welcome to Swords Tidy Towns!

Our mission

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:
Community: 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
Diversity: actively seek new volunteers across a broad section of the community, and promote Swords as a town of diversity and inclusiveness
Environmental: be a champion of biodiversity and environmental issues


Swords Tidy Towners
By Ken Duffy

Tidy Towners we, and very proud of that
Volunteer of the year, is Tidy Towner Matt
Saturday mornings, at 10.30 we meet
To clean up litter, up and down every street

Graffiti the menace, an annoyance to us all
In parts of our town, it’s even wall to wall
Fly postering, an irritation to be scratched
Cheek of some people, is hard to be matched

Fly tipping, is an environmental crime
Attracting vermin, to its stench and grime
River clean ups, we organise twice a year
Removing rubbish, to keep it nice and clear

Flowers we plant, bring colour to our town
Beautiful baskets, contents hanging down
Swords Tidy Towners, a hard working crew
Deserve your support, they do it all for you
