For the residents of Passage and Crooke the past few weeks have been hectic as they prepare the area for for their Pride of Place Entry. Judging Day Friday July 27 th is now almost upon them and lots of work has been done but still some more remains to be done, again all residents are asked to make one last push, Waterford Co Council have been terrific.
On the day a great programme is arranged for the area with the arrival of the judges at 12 noon by boat and landing at the Pontoon on the Quay staying for just 2 1/2 hours and there's an open invitation to all residents men, women and children to come along.
Local groups and clubs will be involved and some of the agenda will be on the Quay, on the River, a lot in the Community Centre and surrounding area and there will be a Marquee nearby for food, Video Presentations, Stalls, music and a tour by the judges up Crooke, on to
Geneva Barracks, Hurling Club, Templar Ruins, up to Carricksaggart to Farm Shop, back down and across Crooke over to the Church on the Hill, up Knockroe on to Parkswood and back to the village, a strict timetable will be in operation from the time the judges arrive until they leave.
A limited number of Commemorative T Shirts are available please contact Sharon Kelly or Committee members. For people still asking what its all about here is a resume. Marks will be given for Level of Involvement of Individuals and groups, Evidence of Social Cohesion in provision for Youth, Disabled, Elderly and minorities, Involvement with local Authority and local Business, Appearance of area and Responsiveness of Residents to this, Sustainability and Long -Term Benefits, Awareness and care of Built and Natural Environment, Links with surrounding area, Innovation,General overall impression. In very simple terms it means what it says on the tin "Pride of Place" and that means having all residents and businesses respond by having their place "spic and span" where the judges pass. The Corvette L.E. Emer and Coastal Helicopter will be there on the day.
