Gardeners enjoy a wild weekend

* At work in Llangollen Community Garden. 
Members of Llangollen Community Garden recently enjoyed a wild weekend.

They were taking part in the national Keep Wales Tidy, Wild Weekend, which involved creating
habitat piles, natural fencing and a wild flower area all with the aim of encouraging wildlife.

They also ran a bat box building activity for children, and are grateful for the assistance of the countryside services staff for making the activity possible.

Tea, biscuits and cake were all provided for those taking part, keeping energy levels up and
allowing time for a chat.

Everyone involved with the garden has commented on how satisfying they have found the working sessions, seeing great progress being made every week.

Group sokesman Warren Davies said: "Community gardening is a great way to start producing your own vegetables.

"You don't need to be an expert, have your own tools, or your own land. All the work is shared, meaning less commitment while still getting great results."

He added: "Next month we intend to plough on with getting the site ready for planting in the spring. Marking out areas for planting, continuing our natural fencing and building compost bins are just some of the planned activities."

The group now has its own Facebook page. This can be found by searching in Facebook
for, 'Llangollen Community Garden'.

Information is also available from the website:, emailing, or calling.texting 07525 016503.

* Gardeners enjoy some refreshment.
