Pentraeth Community & School Garden

18/06/2012

Local school kids from Pentraeth have turned an unsightly corner of their school land that once attracted young people to “hang around” during evenings causing problems into a community garden the whole village can be proud of.

 

Several parents, school children and other members of the community have contributed transforming the once disused ground into several flower beds and have planted several shrubs and herbs but they would welcome more.  Parent and Project Manager Suzanne Winfield said “It’s great to see everyone pulling together but we could always use more help and any unwanted plants so come on down.  The children are also learning a great deal about gardening and pride in their community”

 

Local PCSO Iona Beckman of North Wales Police added “This was an area that once attracted minor anti social behaviour, it was litter strewn and unattractive.  With the aide of a donation of £173 from PACT (Police and Community Trust) we were able to buy a number of garden tools and other equipment and with a little bit of hard work and good fun we’ve been able to create this lovely garden which will benefit the whole community and help reduce incidents of ASB”

 

If anyone would like to donate any plants, tools or volunteer a few hours in the garden contact  Pentraeth School on 01248 450 315 or PCSO Iona Beckman on 07854 400 606.
