Helping Hands Needed in Denbighshire’s Countryside

Denbighshire Countryside Service is on the look-out for volunteers willing to lend a helping hand with numerous initiatives to protect and enhance the region’s breathtaking beauty.

Throughout the year, activities are arranged at various countryside locations, ranging from the coastal area, through the Clwydian Range and down to the Dee Valley.

Dave Foster, Graduate Warden with Denbighshire Countryside Service, said: “We are blessed to have such a dramatic landscape right on our doorstep. People travel from far and wide to visit this beautiful part of the world and it’s easy to see why.

“As a Countryside Service, we are constantly involved in all aspects of practical works, from traditional skills like hedge-laying and dry stone walling to conservation projects such as moorland management that will benefit key species like the black grouse.”

On Thursday, August 27, volunteers are needed to help reconsolidate a section of Offa’s Dyke Path at World’s End. Meet at the World’s End car part at 10.30am. The work will be completed by 3.30pm. Bring a packed lunch.

For further information, either pick up a copy of the Volunteer Booklet available in council offices and country parks, or please phone 01352 810614 for more details.
