To secure the services of a sessional worker to continue to deliver sessions to the community on the Glan Morfa site in Rhyl.

Rhyl Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Continue the development of Glan Morfa (an old tip site) as a community-led nature reserve for the benefit of the people of Rhyl and achieved by a partnership between North Wales Wildlife Trust, Communities First, and Denbighshire County Council. This project supports community development via embedding skills, knowledge and the capacity of locals to take responsibility, with the partners, to jointly manage the site. One of the aims of the group is to "Provide and area for local schools, group etc. to make use of the site as an open air classroom and study area". We would be particularly interested in opening dialogue with yourselves to explore ways where local schools can make use of the site and the sessional worker's expertise to help deliver sessions and lessons which may fit in with or help to complement current curriculum work.

What we'll deliver:

  • To assist Denbighshire Countryside Services in maintaining the site to a high standard.
  • Help transform the former landfill site into a Clean, Green and Safe Open Space for local residents to enjoy.
  • To represent the views of local people and to influence future project work on the Glan Morfa Site.
  • Project delivery will be closely aligned with the priorities of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.
  • Provide an area for local groups, schools etc. to make use of as an open air classroom and study area.
  • Continue to develop and use the area as a space for community engagement and education as well as quiet enjoyment.

Why it's a great idea:

The project will engage will all age groups from infants to senior citizens. A key target group is NEETS who will be involved and will benefit from up-skilling & confidence-building. Our aim is also to engage disparate volunteer groups that already access the sites as well as the parents of the youngsters attending. Local schools have been made aware of the project and the work that has been undertaken on the site through engagement visits and are keen to use the site as an outdoor classroom.

Steps to get it done:

  • Encourage positive use of the Glan Morfa Site
  • Provide a clean, green and safe open space for local people to enjoy with their families.
  • Provide an area for local groups, schools etc. to make use of as an open air classroom and study area.
