Tidy Towns checks us out

ROCKHAMPTON went under the microscope yesterday for judging of the annual Tidy Towns competition.

Caloundra residents and Tidy Town judges Kathleen and George Williams were given the grand tour of the city including a boat trip up to the barrage.

Rockhampton City Council parks and services co-ordinator Ron Robertson said the Tidy Towns awards was more than just making the city clean. In previous years, he said, Rockhampton had been awarded the Regional and Cultural Heritage Awards.

"The Tidy Towns award covers 10 categories including the friendly town award, the young legends award, protection of the environment and the community action award,'' he said.

"Due to the fabulous support and input from council staff, members of the public and community groups, Rockhampton is in a great position to again take home one of the awards on offer.''

Mr Williams said they visited Rockhampton as judges three years ago.

"Rockhampton is quite a city,'' he said.

Mr Williams said the regional awards would be presented in July.
