Heroes wanted!

The Morfa Gateway project is holding it’s official launch on 1 March (when else?)

Be proud of being Welsh this St David’s Day and join us for Spring Clean Cymru – a nationwide campaign encouraging people across Wales to get together to help clean up our beautiful Cymru and in particular our great town of Prestatyn

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 four days of action across Wales from 1-4 March. We will be part of this great event.

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.

Rubbish bags tipped on the car park, Somebody had cleared them up when we got on site the following day, and despite really cold and wet conditions the car parks were crowded with families supporting the junior Saturday morning football.
