Muir welcomes Holywood winning Best Kept Town 2013

Holywood Residents celebrating award
Holywood Winning Kept Town is an amazing achievement with congratulations due to everyone involved in making this happen for Holywood.
Having taken the runner-up spot last year, this year's success is well-deserved after the amount of hard work, time and energy that went into to securing this title.
Winning this title is proof that by Working as One we can succeed. The Council together with community groups, such as Holywood Residents Association and Holywood Conservation Group, has worked relentlessly in sprucing up the town, tackling eye sores and making the place a great town to visit, live, work or invest in.
How a town looks is vital to attracting visitors and hopefully this news will encourage tourists and residents alike to come and see everything Holywood has to offer, all surrounded by award-winning beauty.

Example of partnership working and commitment to Working as One is that Holywood Residents Association made a donation to Council to help provide more plants. Combined with fantastic commitment from staff and other efforts such as Holywood Conservation Group working with owner of 1 Stewarts Place to give it a much needed face lift this I believe helped us clinch the award by Working as One after achieving runner up status for last few years.
