The Trim Municipal District Pride of Place awards were held in McLaughlin’s Pub, Ballivor, on Thursday night, 28th September, 2017.

Chairperson of Trim Municipal District, Cllr. Noel French warmly welcomed the guests, which included local Councillors and representatives from 30 local groups. Cllr. French noted the fantastic work and achievements of the voluntary groups, which demonstrates a real pride the people of Trim Municipal District have in their locality.

Some of the highlights of the night were the “Volunteer of the Year” award which was won by Brian Loughrey.  Brian has been a dedicated volunteer for the last 10 years with Trim Tidy Towns and has helped achieve and maintain the Gold Medal status in the National Tidy Towns competition. And also the award of Ballivor Tidy Towns first Pride of Place award under the Vacant Premises category for the work they carried out to transform a derelict cottage on the Trim Road.  This is a fantastic achievement for Ballivor Tidy Towns who are only in their 2nd year of operation.
