Tidy Towns Judging next week
A Tidy Towns judge will visit Dimboola on Wednesday next week to view seven local projects that have been nominated for the annual Keep Victoria Beautiful Tidy Towns – Sustainable Communities Awards.

All three schools in Dimboola, the Riverside Holiday Park, the R.S.L. and the Avenue of Honour, the Town Committee and Warreguk Dragon Boat Club are all in the running for awards in a number of different categories.

St Peters Lutheran School and Dimboola Primary School will both be judged in the Active Schools category which recognises schools for outstanding sustainability achievement, sustainable practices, reducing their environmental impact and leading the community by example.

Dimboola Memorial Secondary College has been nominated in the Young Leaders category and the Riverside Holiday Park will be judged in for the Community Government Partnership award.

The Dimboola R.S.L. has been nominated in the Cultural Heritage category for their project to revitalise the Avenue of Honour at the Secondary College which has involved the removal of the old tress and their replacement. Charles Rees has been co-ordinating this project on behalf of the R.S.L. and the College, and is pictured above planting trees this week as part of stage two of the project.

The Warreguk Dragon Boat Club is in the running for the Clean Beach/Waterway Award which recognises outstanding achievement in protecting, maintaining and enhancing a local coastal environment or area with a body of water such as a bay, river or lake.

Ongoing work by the Dimboola Town Committee has led it to be nominated for the Community Action and Leadership award which is designed to recognise outstanding achievement in protecting, enhancing and promoting the environment through actions which contribute positively to the community, demonstrate leadership, foster community spirit and build stronger communities.

Judging will commence at 9 am next Wednesday morning and will continue until mid afternoon, with the judge to meet with representatives of each group and view the projects.

The finalists will be announced on the 11th of September, with regional presentations occurring during October and the awards ceremony to be held on the 25th of November in Horsham, which is the reigning Victoria Tidy Town.
