The community of Creggs is buzzing this week as the village prepares for adjudication in the Pride of Place Awards.
Creggs Village was nominated in County Galway in the 0-300 population category. Adjudicators will visit the village on Tuesday next, July 23rd at 2.30 pm, where they will see a presentation on the village and take a walking tour with members of the local committee through the village and on to local sites of interest.
In recent weeks local groups got together and formed a Pride of Place Committee which has met every Tuesday night and village clean-ups have taken place on Wednesday evenings, with young and old alike rolling up their sleeves and getting to work.
The nomination has caused a flurry of activity in the area and great enthusiasm for the project is evident. Ja and Conor Ryan of Galway Agri Videos got involved with the local committee in the creation of a 20-minute video on the area and have been regularly spotted around the village with their cameras in recent days. Everyone is very much looking forward to the fruits of their labour, which will be unveiled at the Tuesday afternoon adjudication event.
Pictures from the locality, along with reports on the voluntary work being done by local committees have been compiled into a booklet for the adjudicators. Organisers have been pleasantly surprised by the volume of community work going on within the area, with over 40 organisations contributing to community life in a variety of ways.
All of these organisations will be represented with stands at the adjudication event on Tuesday 23rd.
Everyone is invited along to the adjudication event in Creggs NS on Tuesday, 23rd of July at 2 pm as the village greets the adjudicators of Pride of Place 2019.
