Tidy Towns judges recently visited Esperance to see what we have to offer. The judges had two hours in Esperance to look at a variety of nominated projects. These ranged from projects highlighting our culture and heritage, improvements to our town’s appearance and infrastructure and projects based on sustainability and environmental outcomes.
Judges met with Jennell Reynolds & Carmel Creed at Esperance Community Arts and looked at the new Esperance Arts & Cultural Trail Website, The Girls Academy Mural Project and several of the other amazing new mural’s in town.
The judges then travelled to Fourths Beach to inspect the dune system rehabilitation works, they visited Dempster Head to discuss the Dempster Head Management Plan and spoke with Kevin Reynolds and Jenelle Reynolds about the ETNAC Rangers and their Heritage Survey. They also looked at the Shire’s Waste Stations and meet members of the Shire’s Sustainability Working Group which is looking to introduce more sustainable work practices.
We have had some fantastic outcomes with our highlighted projects again this year. We would like to thank all the groups involved in nominating their Sustainability projects and welcoming the judges to Esperance, and of course for the fantastic work they have undertaken for our community. State finalists will be advised in August/September.
We are already looking for projects for next year’s entry, so if you have a Sustainable Communities Project that is being planned, maintained or completed in the coming year – we would love to hear from you. https://www.esperance.wa.gov.au/tidy-towns-sustainable-communities
