Huge progress at The Morfa Gateway Project site today 12th March 2018

No Comments
Progress continues

Progress continues apace at The Morfa Gateway Project in Prestatyn.

The felled trees have been cleared from the site and to further progress the project, Countryside Services team members were there clearing undergrowth ahead of this Thursday’s litter pick.

We could also get a better look at some of the large stones that we hope to use in the landscaping.

The scale of the fly-tipping over the years unfortunatly also became apparent.

Litter pick 16th March 2018

With lots of brush cutting and other work going on we now can get a true sense of the scale of the project site.  It seems massive !

There will certainly be plenty to have a go at on Thursday.

We are meeting at the carpark from 11am onwards and will have a selection of litter picking equipment available.

Please bring your own gloves and be prepared for whatever the weather throws at us.

We can not cancel the event this time as we wish to be included in the Keep Wales Tidy  #CymruSpringClean campaign.

“Heroes assemble! Be proud of being Welsh and join us for Spring Clean Cymru 2018 – a nationwide campaign encouraging people across Wales to get together to help clean up our beautiful Cymru!

Part of the Great British Spring Clean, Keep Wales Tidy wants to inspire the people of Wales to get outdoors, to be active and to be proud of where they live.

Community groups, schools and businesses will all be taking part in March.”

On the day we hope to have warm drinks available and a small sheltered area if the weather does turn nasty.

Please remember that during March and April you can vote for us in Tesco Prestatyn as part of their “Bags of Help” funding. Please ask for the token every time you shop.

Ahead of our launch Steve has produced the drawing above.

The idea’s we have are an addition to the excellent work continually carried out the The Prestatyn & District Environmental Association; (P.D.E.A) and Denbighshire County Council Countryside Services.

This project was brought about after conversations with North Wales Police and Artisans Collective of Prestatyn who have already partnered on a number of community projects.

We are very pleased to also have Healthy Prestatyn Iach, Denbighshire County Council Housing onboard as project partners.

The Greggs Foundation and Tesco “Bags of Help” have also helped to fund the project so far.

The Grow Wild UK legacy in Prestatyn

grow Wild

Over the past three years we have had the privilege of being involved with Kew Gardens via their outreach scheme Grow Wild.

Our involvement with them has led to a much bigger project in 2018.

We hope to be putting a lot of what we have learnt from them and other community groups that we jointly engaged with locally.

Last year was focused much more on fungi and this time lapse is great.
