Calling all nature lovers and community-minded citizens! Groundwork North Wales is looking for volunteers to help make 2023 another successful year for the Our Back Yard Project.

Our Back Yard is a community-led initiative that aims to improve and enhance green spaces around the town of Connah’s Quay.

Luisa from Groundwork North Wales explains more about the project, she said: “Volunteering with the Our Back Yard project is a great way to give back to your community, meet new people, experience the great outdoors, and gain valuable skills.”



“Whether you’re looking to build up your experiences for your CV or simply wanting to try something new, this is an opportunity not to be missed.”

Luisa said: “Last year, the Our Back Yard project was a huge success thanks to the dedication of its volunteers.”

“They gave over 1,500 hours to the project and as a result, 15 green spaces in the Connah’s Quay area were improved and over 100 bags of litter were collected from local green spaces.”

People of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds are encouraged to get involved, and no experience is necessary.

Volunteers can join the Our Back Yard team in several different ways, including weekly practical conservation sessions held in Connah’s Quay, helping out at events, sharing their skills with groups in activity sessions such as photography, art, or gardening, and attending formal training and social days out throughout the year.

For those interested in getting involved or would like to have a chat about volunteering, contact [email protected] or by calling 01978757524.

“Let’s work together to make 2023 another great year for the Our Back Yard project!” Luisa said.
