Welsh Government Scheme to Tidy Areas of Wrexham

Lesley_GriffithsWrexham looks set to receive over £24,000 as part of a scheme to tidy-up communities across Wales.

Overall, 75 projects across Wales will receive funding as part of the Welsh Government’s Tidy Towns initiative and Wrexham Assembly Member Lesley Griffiths has welcomed the announcement.

The programme offers funding to community groups and local authorities to help people make their area cleaner, safer and tidier. Projects funded by the programme tackle problems such as littering, fly tipping, dog fouling and vandalism.

As part of a community-led project, over £7,600 has been allocated to Llay Community Council to make improvements to a footpath and to paint a mural on the walls of Shones Lane changing rooms to deter graffiti.

Two authority-led projects will take place in the Wrexham area. Investment totalling £6,500 will take place at Castle Road to improve open spaces and £10,000 will be spent to tidy-up areas of Caia Park.

Altogether, over £2m has been made available by the Welsh Government to help keep communities tidy across Wales.

Local AM Ms Griffiths said:

“It is important we feel proud of our local community and this Welsh Government funding will help protect the environment and clear and improve communal areas across Wales.”

“I am pleased the Tidy Towns projects are taking place and will benefit areas of Wrexham, ultimately resulting in neighbourhoods becoming a better, cleaner place for local residents to live.”
