WITHCOTT resident Sue Case is proud to live at the bottom of the Range and is even prouder to hear her hometown was recognised at the 2012 Tidy Towns awards. 

The town won the Little Prevention Award. 

Mrs Case, who owns the Withcott Newsagency, said she and other businesses around her did their best to keep the town clean and tidy. 

"There are half a dozen older citizens who pick up rubbish early Monday mornings," she said. 

"And we all clean the front of our shop before we open in the mornings." 

Other winners from across the region included Grantham with the Resource Recovery Award, Gayndah with the Environmental Protection Award and North Burnett Regional Council with the Outstanding Regional Council award.
