At the entrance to our site, a small pocket of land, some 7mtr x 12mtrs, had been used as a dumping ground and storage area for at least 40 years, so a small group of volunteers decided to tidy it up.
This escalated into plans for somewhere to sit, which developed further into plans for a welcoming garden area.
Following a successful application to the Keep Wales Tidy ‘Natural Buzz’ Scheme, we then started clearing the area – and removed 6 boxes of broken glass!
14 volunteers put in over 250 hours of work.
February / March / April 2015 – The Pollinator Garden –
In preparation for wider community use and our community apiary ( A collection of beehives ), we were successful in securing a grant from Keep Wales Tidy ‘Natural Buzz’ for pollinator friendly plants and shrubs. We cleared an area used as a dumping ground for nearly 50 years at our entrance.
