Fiddown Tidy Towns Association was founded in 1964. Its aim was to enhance the appearance of the village and develop its amenities.
It became the driving force in the village development over the years and is largely responsible for many of the services and amenities we now enjoy.
The flower and shrub beds, the river slip way, the amenity and parking area even the new bridge are but some of its achievements.
It also organised the Regattas and Barbecues, Socials, Raffles and Parties and in general was central to the life of the village. Chaired by the late Dan Leahy, Fiddown Tidy Towns regularly achieved high markings in the National Tidy Towns competition.
The village underwent a period of intense building development from 2002 to 2008 and the momentum of the committee waned, losing ground to the JCB's and the building activity. Little further work was started until the Spring of 2011 when new committee was elected and a new beginning for the association.
Chaired by Les Whiteaker and with the help of a great group of volunteers, the village has been transformed. Areas such as, the village approaches, the moat, the bridge and the floral arrangements, have been improved and are showing all the signs of care and attention.
The slipway, quay and Moat have been transformed by a great voluntary effort, and all the grassed areas are cut and trimmed.
Repair and painting of key areas is well under way and the results of the hard work can be seen.
