Groundwork North Wales is inviting people from across Flintshire to join their “Our Back Yard” end-of-project celebration.

The celebrations will take place on Saturday, 30th September at Wepre Park from 11am to 3pm.

Attendees can expect stalls from local organisations and community groups, a local history exhibit, family activities, bushcraft sessions, guided walks, marshmallow roasting, and more!

The guided walk commences at 11am. It will be led by the Friends of Wepre and the meeting point is at the rear of the visitor centre.

All activities are complimentary and will occur at the rear of the visitor centre.

The “Our Back Yard” project has been active in Connah’s Quay since 2017. Its primary aim is to empower the local community to enhance their natural environment for the present and future generations.

Some key accomplishments of the project include:

  • Organising the yearly Quay Clean event, which greatly contributes to a cleaner environment by removing litter from streets, nature reserves, and parks.
  • Enhancing both the accessibility and biodiversity of five unique green spaces within the community.
  • Conducting over 350 nature-based activity sessions across seven educational institutions.
  • Empowering local residents by offering them training and qualifications.
  • Logging an impressive 10,500 volunteer hours dedicated to the project.
  • Engaging the community with a range of events, including the Quay Nature Club and Family Bushcraft.

The Wepre Park full event programme can be found at https://www.facebook.com/OurBackYardCQ
