About the project

We provide a community hub and have a network of volunteers. Working closely with our town and county councils, local police and health board we provide regular weekly and also one off events for the community.

Currently we facilitate, Men's Shed Prestatyn, Prestatyn Dementia Friendly Community, Coffee Pod bereavement group, weekly art and craft groups and lots more.

We reach all ages and social backgrounds and are the North Wales community hub of Kew Gardens Via their Grow Wild outreach project. We participate in Wales in Bloom, and all of the local events and festivals.

We are transforming a site that was once a waste disposal site and was covered by Japanese Knotweed and attracts anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping into a wildflower meadow/recreation area.

We wish to engage with all age groups particularly young people who are not working and may not be involved in other activities. As well as clearing the site we intend to make bird, bat, butterfly boxes, litter pick, and the installation of a dog waste bin etc. This would be an intergenerational activity and hopefully pass skills down.

Everything would be documented via a photography and video project.

Our project has been offered support by a number of other organisations who all would bring volunteers and expertise including, North Wales Police, Countryside Services (Denbighshire County Council) Tape Music and Film, and Prestatyn Men's Shed

Healthy Prestatyn Iach a newly opened and new sytle of health centre are very keen to also be involved, as it would be of benefit to patients to get outdoors and become more involved/active as a potential therapeutic activity.
