Morfa Gateway Project – an introduction.
Our project is transforming a site that was once a waste disposal site and was covered by Japanese Knotweeed, It once attracted anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping, We intend building a multi use recreation area.
Located at the bottom of Lon Goed (Tip Lane) Prestatyn, with ample free car parking alongside the project space.
We are engaging with all age groups. Particularly young people who are not working and may not be involved in other activities.
As well as clearing the site we are making bird, bat, butterfly boxes, and regular litter picking. With lots of intergenerational activities and hopefully pass skills down.
We will be featured as Part of the BBC series “Britain in Bloom” during 2019.
Filming was carried out during the summer of 2018.
Everything is being documented via a photography and video project. Morfa Gateway project will transform the entrance to the area and the approach to the allotments.
We are supported by a number of other organisations. Who all bring volunteers and expertise including, North Wales Police, Countryside Services, Denbighshire housing (Denbighshire County Council), and Prestatyn Men’s Shed.
