Finally thank you to all the hard working volunteers and friends from Rush Tidy Towns and Rush Community Council without whom the event would not have happened. 

The 2024 Rush Tidy Towns calendar is now in several shops around the town. “Thanks to all the photographers who submitted some gorgeous pictures of scenes around Rush and to the 10 winning photographers who had their photos selected. This is a fundraising initiative, and every cent profit goes back into the community through Tidy Town projects so the money is going back into the community,” concluded Philip.
