We would like to give a huge thanks to Prestatyn in Bloom for including 3 of our projects plus a visit to Prestatyn Mens Shed in this years RHS WalesInBloom event.

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 AbergeleHealthy Prestatyn Iach / Healthy Rhuddlan IachTai 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 PrestatynDyserth WIPrestatyn & District Environment AssociationPrestatyn 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. WendyMark 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.

Thanks also to Greggs who have help fund part of the Morfa Gateway Project project via #GreenerWithGreggs
