Hendy Nature Trail opens to the public

AN EXCITING new nature trail has been opened in Hendy.

The trail was officially launched by Chairman of Llanedi Community Council, Cllr Emyr Davies, Chairman of the volunteers and steering group, Mr Michael Harper, and Junior Ranger, Alfie Jones, on Friday afternoon before lockdown. Mr Harper stated “It is great to see the trail launched after months of hard work. It is a haven for wildlife and also for local people, especially at this time.”

The trail runs around the old cricket ground and takes advantage of its wonderful location on the edge of the Loughour Estuary. It includes an all access path, habitat improvement, information boards about local wildlife and bird life as well as bird screens. Entrance is free.

Community Development Officer, Ruth Taylor-Davies said she has been impressed with the amazing efforts of the local volunteers and added “With this project, we’re delighted to be helping to create a community facility and support wildlife and improve biodiversity through #ldtgrants. New volunteers are always welcome, and I would encourage people to get involved by contacting llanedicdo@gmail.com”.

Llanedi Community Council owns the land and supports the project. The Community Council is able to support this project thanks to funding secured from Welsh Government’s Landfill Disposal Tax Community Scheme, administered by WCVA.
