Working together to keep Waterford beautiful

Following on from the recent launch of ‘Keep Waterford Beautiful’ by Tom Murphy Volkswagen, Waterford Chamber CEO Gerald Hurley is encouraging the business community to follow the lead and take pride in our city.

“In this glorious weather, there is nowhere nicer in the world than Waterford. We all take pride in our city and county and all it has to offer, but we must also take action and keep up the standards. Waterford was ranked the cleanest city in Ireland in 2017 and we should be determined to secure the same result for 2018.

“Thanks to the City in Bloom initiative, the floral displays are fantastic and we are asking all business owners in the city to take pride in their shop/office front as well. Each week we see huge cruise liners arrive into the city, as well as coach loads of tourists. Now is the time to put the best foot forward and ensure they return home and recommend Waterford to their family and friends.

“Tom Murphy has launched a fantastic initiative where each participating club will receive €500 for their efforts at a prize giving ceremony at Tom Murphy Volkswagen on Wednesday 23rd August. They have identified eight blackspot areas throughout the city which are in need of care and we hope that the business community will follow suit and work on their own environs.”
