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:
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:
