Dorrigo RSL cleans up with home-town advantage

A LOCAL club has proven home-town advantage counts for something, after scoring two wins in this year's NSW Tidy Town Awards.

The Dorrigo RSL Memorial Club won the ClubsNSW Clubs Partnership Award and also received a highly commended in the Civic Partnership Award at the special ceremony held in Dorrigo on Saturday.

Keep Australia Beautiful NSW chief executive officer, Peter McLean, said our local club did well to win in two categories of the highly contested awards.

“Dorrigo RSL is a fantastic example of how a club can give back to all areas of the community,” Mr McLean said. The State awards were held in Dorrigo after the Coffs Coast town won six major awards and overall State winner in last year's Tidy Towns Awards.

The mantle of overall State winner was passed onto big winner Tamworth this year, though Mr McLean did say Dorrigo can still be proud of what it has achieved.

“Having the award ceremony here has really shown people what Dorrigo is about, the community involvement has been amazing,” he said.
