We are delighted to have been awarded a new garden package by environmental charity Keep Wales Tidy! We're proud to be one of the first organisations in the country to benefit from this year’s Local Places for Nature scheme which help us further develop our on site community garden. We'll also receive plants, tools and materials provided for free by Keep Wales Tidy!

We're over the moon with this new support received from Keep Wales Tidy! Their brilliant Garden Package will enable us to offer increased opportunities for growing with our volunteers and the wider community here on site, something we've been trying to develop for some time. Having access to plants, new materials and tools is just a dream come true! - Lucy Powell, Outside Lives

Last year, more than 500 small gardens across Wales were created, restored and enhanced. Community groups and organisations of all shapes and sizes got involved – from disability charities and youth groups to social enterprises and carer groups.

Deputy Chief Executive for Keep Wales Tidy, Louise Tambini said:

“Over the twelve months, more people than ever have come to appreciate the value of nature on their doorstep. But urgent action must be taken to give reverse its decline.

“We’re delighted that [insert name of group/school/organisation] now has the opportunity to make a real difference through Local Places for Nature. We hope other communities will be inspired to get involved.”

The initiative is part of a wider Welsh Government ‘Local Places for Nature’ fund committed to creating, restoring and enhancing nature ‘on your doorstep’. Hundreds of free garden packages are available.
