Keep Wales Tidy have introduced bluebells, snowdrops, and wild garlic to our community garden, along with planting 12 fruit trees including apple, pear, and plum in our expanding orchard.

Green spaces that are easily accessible play a crucial role as sanctuaries for both people and wildlife. Since the initiation of Local Places for Nature in 2020, Keep Wales Tidy has contributed to the creation, restoration, and enhancement of close to 800 gardens throughout Wales. This program, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, helps communities to nurture nature right in their own neighbourhoods, and in our case, our back garden.

Accommodation and Support Manager Claire, said, “Our garden is looking fantastic thanks to the recent work of Keep Wales Tidy. This year, we aim to enhance our garden to make it a more inviting space for relaxation, fostering biodiversity, cultivating food, encouraging social connections and improving mental health. We’re also planning to incorporate an upcycling workshop within the garden, making it a vital and active hub for our community.”

We want to provide a much-needed boost to the well-being of our community by getting as many volunteers to help with the upkeep of the community grounds, as well as helping to plant more vegetables this spring.
