Date: Saturday 27th November 2021
Time: 12 noon – 3pm
Venue: Meet at Care and Repair (Including Tree planting at Dee Park), Rowley’s Drive, Shotton, Deeside, CH5 1PY
Great News! Care and Repair and Flintshire Coastal Rangers have been successful in securing Heritage Lottery funding to bring Dee Park back to the community. The funding will enable 5000 trees to be planted by the Shotton community at Dee Park this winter. We would love you to come and be part of this transformation and are invited to plant one of these trees at the start of this project to reconnect the community with this green space.
The trees however are only the start! Come along and find out more about plans to:
Hold a series of community events to work with the project team to clean up and create their Park.
Plant 5000 trees including an avenue of more mature trees.
Create 500m of hedgerow.
Create a hard surfaced path to link the railway bridges, Dee Park and the coastal path.
Create a secure Environmental Education and Wellbeing Activity Site for local schools and community group use.
Open up sightlines and views into and through the park to improve enjoyment of the site for all.
