This Day in History: 2001-12-06
Toodyay won the Tidy Town Award, for towns with 1000-2500 residents. The Tidy Towns Committee was set up four years ago, led by Adrian Bolton. The Toodyay Mainstreet Committee encouraged local businesses to place planter barrels outside their premises and Toodyay Traders to grow creepers up their verandah posts. Toodyay was awarded the Emu Trophy.
