As I’m writing this, the sun is cracking the flags outside the office window. Great for many of us after recent wet and miserable summers but not of course great for everyone in our communitiesR…
Last year the RHS judge commented “I could drive the route myself” as Prestatyn was presenting similar things each year.
Not this year mate!
With 3 transformational projects included in the entry this year and the additional pressure of the BBC wanting to film things developing constantly, it has been quite a task and a lot of pressure put on volunteers.
Our project partners HGC Dinbych Arfordirol ac Abergele / NWP Denbighshire Coastal and Abergele, Healthy Prestatyn Iach / Healthy Rhuddlan Iach, Tai Sir Ddinbych – Denbighshire Housing, and Denbighshire Countryside Service have all been fantastic with their valuable time helping the Morfa Gateway project progress.
We have also had some great help for the Prestatyn Dementia Friendly garden from Steve Griffiths Plants on Prestatyn Market.
The volunteers from different organisations across the area have been great including Hedgehog Help Prestatyn, Dyserth WI, Prestatyn & District Environment Association, Prestatyn High School. Citizens in our wider community who just turn up and graft to benefit others are all heroes.
We have to mention the unending support of Denbighshire County Councilstreet scene team, without them we could not have achieved any of the work that the judge was really impressed with yesterday. Wendy, Mark and Paulthank you so much and please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team.
Lots of people walk past and say how much they love the transformation at the Morfa Gateway Project which to us is proof we are going in the right direction.
