Former mayor plants first of two community orchards

* Planting the new Pengwern orchard are, from left, Heulwen, chair of the Friends of Pengwern Committee; Cllr and Mrs Cheminais, Mayor and Mayoress of Llangollen; Emma from Denbighshire County Council's Countryside Services, Heather  from Denbighshire County Council's Community Housing Greenspace Development; Cllr Jon Haddy.

Llangollen's immediate past mayor, Cllr Jon Haddy, has used part of his Mayor's Charity Fund to finance the creation of two community orchards in Pengwern Park and the new Wenffrwd Pocket Park. 

The intention is that once the trees crop the apples are picked and used by the people who use both parks.

He has sourced a selection of 10 Welsh heritage varieties of apple trees to be planted at each site and the Pengwern Park orchard was planted yesterday (Monday).

The current Mayor and Mayoress of Llangollen, Cllr Austin and Mrs Jane Cheminais, cut the first sod.
