Living in lockdown is bringing out the creative side of lots of us and Wrexham’s Green Infrastructure Project Officer is no exception. She has taken advantage of this difficult situation and gone online with some great activities for children and adults and it’s also very educational too 🙂
She broadcasts live via Facebook every day from her home and has a 13,000 post reach per month with her activities. That’s not bad going for just a few short weeks.
You can find out about all that’s going on in your own garden including bats and moths or you can get creative and make a green face mask with things found in your own garden.

If you’d like to take a look at what’s going on and what you can do to entertain your children and encourage them to take an interest in our environment check out her page on Facebook.
Liven up your Land: Nominations for Caia Park and Plas Madoc welcome!
Does your neighbourhood need a new look? Is there an area of green space near you that feels neglected and deserves a makeover?
Wrexham Council, the North Wales Wildlife Trust and Keep Wales Tidy have been funded by Welsh government for the next 2 years to promote environmental improvements in Wrexham for people and nature and we want you to tell us where you would like to see these improvements.
We are keen to start planning for the Autumn/Winter time so send in those nominations.
Maybe it’s a school grounds or a patch of grass opposite your house, we want to hear all your ideas! Whatever the size, we would like you to nominate an area in Caia Park and Plas Madoc that would benefit from a burst of colourful wildflowers, nectar rich shrubs or even a fruit orchard.
Councillor David A Bithell, Deputy Leader of the Council and Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “The Green Infrastructure Project officer is providing us all with an opportunity to get involved with our environment from our own homes and gardens. Please, if you live in Caia Park or Plas Madoc let us have your nominations for the Liven up your Land project which will see green spaces in these areas enhanced in order to improve biodiversity in the areas.”
Please email your nominations and any requests for further information to the project officer, Jacinta Challinor: firstname.lastname@example.org.LATEST INFO ON COVID-19
