Coleg Cambria Deeside engineering students give up time to volunteer in the community
Engineering students from Coleg Cambria Deeside have generously given up their time to volunteer in the community as part of the Work Skills unit in their courses.
First year Industrial Mechanical Apprentices (IMA) and first year Craft Group B Airbus Apprentices volunteered at Presthaven Sands in Gronant.
The learners aided the coastal ranger, Mandy Cartwright with sand dune conservation work, litter picking on the beach and clearing shrubs from the dunes to maintain the sand dune habitat.
First year Pathways to Apprenticeships (PtA) Aeronautical students carried out their volunteer work at Basinkwerk Community Garden in Greenfield.
The students worked with the Transition Holywell and District volunteers as well as Groundwork Wales to build paths and raised beds in the community garden to make it more accessible.
First year Craft Group A Airbus Apprentices visited Connah’s Quay Community Wetland to help Judith Wright from Keep Wales Tidy.
They carried out wetland maintenance work and cleared vegetation from the boardwalks.
