Local Member of the Senedd for Delyn, Hannah Blythyn, visited Ysgol Merllyn in Bagillt last week, and spoke to pupils about ‘Community Kindness Day’.

Children from the school, showed the MS what they had been doing for community kindness day and how each class took responsibility for a ‘kind act’ that they took out into the community.

Hannah Blythyn said:

“I was really pleased once again to have the opportunity to visit Ysgol Merllyn on Community Kindness Day to see firsthand how much the children and the community got from the day. The event was a great success and the children gained a real life, authentic understanding of kindness in action. It’s lovely to see the children enjoying themselves and taking pride in the area they live in.”

Throughout the day, local police officers, Keep Wales Tidy, Early Help Hub, Reverend Kathryn Evans, Flint High School, and local councillors, such as Cllr. Bryn Gittins, teamed up with the pupils carried out various acts of kindness in the community and were also working hard installing planters in the school grounds to support biodiversity.

Hannah took the opportunity to help with the planting on the school grounds as part of their Keep Wales Tidy initiative.

Ysgol Merllyn headteacher, Mike Elliott, said:

“The Community Kindness Day saw involvement from Ysgol Glan Aber, Cornist Primary School and Ysgol Gwynedd who went out into their local area delivering hugs in mugs, litter picking and planting trees.

Feedback from residents has been really positive and for the next day planned in the Summer term, Ysgol Merllyn hopes to involve more schools across Flint.

It was brilliant to see so many groups come together to work together in their community, for their community. The idea of these days is to help our children learn the importance of community and looking after where they live. Having so many important figures from the community present on the day was a lovely example to our children.”
