North Wales Wildlife Trust is taking the Wild About Mold Project forward in the latest phase of its Alun and Chwiler Living Landscapes Scheme, which aims to create a landscape in our towns and countryside within which wildlife thrives and people prosper together in a clean, healthy and sustainable environment.

The Trust has received a Big Lottery ‘People and Places’ award, funded by the National Lottery, to work with local people and undertake activities that improve Mold and its surrounding communities by:

  • Physically improving the condition of community-selected outdoor spaces, for the benefit of both wildlife and people.
  • Enhancing the skill levels of those taking part, both in terms of soft skills, such as confidence-building, and subject-specific techniques, such as hedge-laying.
  • To bring together representatives of diverse communities of interest, who would otherwise only rarely interact.

A schedule of activities, including a Spring Flower Walk on 30 May, has been developed by the Trust till October so that work can start straight away. After that representatives from the areas in Flintshire and Denbigh- shire within the scheme, will help to develop and deliver activities until the project’s end in October 2019.

The Wild About Mold project will also contribute to the development of future phases of the Living Landscape Scheme.
