Morfa Gateway Project – an introduction.

A huge thanks to Greggs foundation for being the first major supporter of our latest community project. The Greggs Foundation is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and is closely associated with Greggs plc. The Greggs Foundation is a grant making charity which improves the quality of life in local communities, distributing around £2.8 million per year to charitable organisations throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

Our project dirt link is here and we will be using the Hashtag #GreenerwithGreggs throughout the project. We are transforming a site that was once a waste disposal site and was covered by Japanese Knotweed and attracts anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping into a multi use recreation area.

We wish to engage 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 intend to make bird, bat, butterfly boxes, litter pick, and the installation of a dog waste bin etc. This would be an intergenerational activity and hopefully pass skills down.

Everything will be 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
