Woodland area near Park Hall, Carmarthen, has a Spring clean!
The woodland area behind Carmarthen’s Park Hall estate has had an early Spring clean.
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme volunteers spent several days on site clearing rubbish that had been dumped and having a general tidy up.
Pathways have been made good, and they’ve also built wooden bird boxes to attract wildlife to the area.
Despite the weather, they also planted some shrubs and trees.
Their help has been welcomed by members of Tenants and Residents of East Carmarthen (TREC) who have rejuventated the woodland over the last 18 months, using a Local Environmental Quality grant and funding from the county council’s Carmarthenshire Homes Standard programme.
In the past year they’ve transformed the previously disused and overgrown area in to a peaceful picnic and relaxation area, and have involved pupils from Richmond School in researching the area’s Roman past.
Prince’s Trust Team Leader, Ifor Griffiths, said: “Members of team 161, based in Carmarthen, worked alongside workers from Tidy Towns, Mynydd Mawr Woodlands and the council to update and develop the Park Hall woodland area for the benefit of the local community.
“We are grateful to Carmarthenshire County Council for allowing the young people engage in the project.”
Kirsty Hall, Chair of the Tenants and Residents of East Carmarthen (TREC) said their efforts have made a big difference.
