Alyn Waters

During the lockdown many local park visitors have been decorating stones to add to the stone snakes on both the Llay and Gwersyllt sides of Alyn Waters Country Park.

These fantastic pieces of spontaneous environmental art will soon be slithering off to be relocated in a slightly safer location in the parks to act as a reminder of the creative spirit, which has helped us all through the lockdown.

No matter how mild your symptoms are, you should get a test for Coronavirus

Park staff, visitors and local councillors have all suggested that the snakes should be rescued from the winter mud and puddles because they are too good to ‘return to nature’ just yet!

If you would like to add a decorated stone to the snakes they will remain in situ for the next few weeks.

The stones of the Gwersyllt/Bradley snake will be collected for relocation near tp the visitor centre on Wednesday, August 26, and the Llay snake will be collected the following week on Wednesday, September 2, to be relocated in the park.

If you do not want your stone to be part of the relocated ‘covid coils’ then please feel free to collect them before these dates.
