Pride of Place Competition

Kildare County Council would like to invite all residents associations and community groups from Local Authority Estates in County Kildare to enter the Pride of Place Competition 2016. For the past 21 years the council has held a competition for Tidy Estates and Best Kept Gardens with great success. The focus is on building vibrant, sustainable communities and encouraging residents to become actively involved in the development of their communities.  

The estates will be judged on the following:

  • Open space maintenance/estate enhancement
  • Levels of voluntary participation
  • Community development initiatives
  • Best kept gardens

Judging will take place in late June/early July 2016. The closing date for the competition is Friday, 20 May 2016. No late applications will be accepted.

All prize winners will be announced at our annual Community Awards night in November and all non prize winners will receive a token for their participation in the competition. Application forms are available on our website here or you can contact the Community Development office at 045980692/acorbett@kildarecoco.ie
