Members of the public are being invited to take part in a community fruit orchard planting day.

Two sessions will take place on Saturday 28 January on Llwyn Onn, off Cefn Road between 10-12pm and 1-3pm.

The initiative is part of Wrexham Council’s commitment to the Tree and Woodland Strategy and the Wrexham Woodland Pledge.

Part of the Strategy is to create a variety of diverse habitats that support an array of wildlife as well as give the residents of Wrexham access to high quality, local green space for health and wellbeing.

The fruit orchard will provide much needed pollinator rich habitat for birds and insects as well as support ongoing efforts to future woodland habitats in years to come.

During the day Brymbo Heritage Trust will be on hand with their expert knowledge and experience to help make the day a success.

Participants are asked to wear warm clothes and wellies, and bring hats, scarves and gloves to keep warm. Please meet on the green space off Kempton Way.

If you would like to comment on any of the proposed areas you can email [email protected]. You can also lend your support for the protection of trees and woodlands within Wrexham through the Wrexham Woodland Pledge, here.
