* Members of the Tidy Town Team do preparation work for Centenary Square last year.
Co-ordinator David Davies presents the 2018 annual report for Llangollen Tidy Town Team
48 full sacks of litter have been collected this year (double that of 2017) with the main problems area continuing to be the road into Llangollen from Trevor along by the “Hawthorn”.
Litter from along the Panorama, on Dinas Bran castle hill and around the Wharf adds to our collection.
Work in Cemetery Woods continues but unfortunately much of the yew hedge we transplanted there in the summer from around the Cenotaph area has failed to take.
Young yews, as we acquire them, are being planted along the precipice edge. A challenge for 2019 is the removal of a couple of very tall Hemlock trees.
In partnership with DCC Countryside Services we tried our hand at hedge laying this year along the main footpath leading from the Town up to Dinas Bran Castle.
We are pleased that one of our members subsequently participated in a hedge laying competition achieving a certificate for second place.
We have repaired and repainted a few seats in Plas Newydd and undertaken significant gardening and hedge cutting work around the Llangollen Health Centre.
Our services continue to be provided at the Town Christmas Festival day with our erecting stalls, traffic assistance during the Parade and fireworks and end of day clear up.
Attendance at this event this year was enhanced with the use of the new Town Square area.
A special thank you to the Team retiring from their activities of the past seven years of daily collecting horse manure from along the canal tow path and for the income generated towards the cost of our activities.
Finally a big thank you to all Members of the Team for over 500 hours of voluntary work during the year and to our Supporters for their continued encouragement.
