Morfa Gateway Project – an introduction.
Our project is transforming a site that was once a waste disposal site and covered by Japanese Knotweed. It once attracted anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping, We are 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 litter picking. With lots of intergenerational activities and will hopefully pass skills down. #
The project and its volunteers are featuring as part of the BBC series “Britain in Bloom” during spring 2019. With Filming carried out during the summer of 2018.
With everything documented via a photography and video project. Morfa Gateway project will transform the entrance to the area and the approach to the allotments.
Here is a taste of what we did in 2018.
The Project is supported by lots of different organisations. Who all bring volunteers and expertise including, Artisans Collective, North Wales Police, Countryside Services, Denbighshire Housing (Denbighshire County Council), and Prestatyn Men’s Shed.
