Welsh Conservative Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes MP, is encouraging communities in Wrexham and Denbighshire to get involved in a scheme aimed at creating, restoring and enhancing green spaces.
The ‘Local Places for Nature’ project was a huge success last year with 500 green spaces across the country transformed, and community groups and organisations of all shapes and sizes getting involved – from disability charities and youth groups to social enterprises and care groups.
Now, in 2021 hundreds more packages are available to give out to deserving communities who are keen to reverse nature’s decline, work towards a more sustainable environment and provide an important boost to the well-being of local communities across Wales, and Mr Baynes is urging communities in his constituency of Clwyd South to get involved.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to boost community wellbeing and brighten up our area at the same time. So, I really hope that local groups and organisations will get involved. We have some amazing gardeners and horticulturalists in Clwyd South, and I know that with their green-fingered talent, we can transform our green spaces and bring a bit more nature back into our lives.”
The Local Places for Nature package includes native plants, tools and other materials.
