Developer withdraws proposal

January 30th, 2018 | Posted by llangollen garden in Garden News - (Comments Off on Developer withdraws proposal)

Denbighshire County Council has confirmed that the developer has withdrawn their proposal for the community garden land. This means that there is no longer an immediate threat to the community garden. THANK YOU for your support that has helped save the garden.

Our disagreement over the land use and value of the community garden has always been with Denbighshire County Council. In order to safeguard the garden for the future we hope to work with Denbighshire County Council and Llangollen Town Council to find a long term solution. So there is still work to do. Working out a long term solution could take 12 months or more.

We appreciate and would like to thank you once again for your support over the past few months. Your support going forward will also be very much appreciated.

Please help us prevent the closure of Llangollen Community Garden

On 11th January 2018 the Asset Management Group at Denbighshire County Council will decide whether to ‘gift’ the community garden land to a developer looking to build 4 or 5 detached houses on the garden site.

This will be in return for building work being carried out at Plas Newydd; the developer has suggested this could be building an extension on the café.

The Council has already agreed to this in principle, at a private meeting.  However, at the next meeting on 11th January the Asset Management Group will decide whether to ratify their decision and proceed, or whether to stop and save the community garden.

We need your help to save the community garden! PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SIGN OUR PETITION

UPDATE 11/01/2018: Thank you to everyone who has signed our petition or written to our councillors. The council were due to make a decision today on the developer’s proposal. However your support has helped us delay the final decision on the garden to March 8th. If you haven’t already signed the petition please click here to do so now.

If you have already written to your councillors then rest assured your input has had a huge impact on decision makers at Denbighshire County Council. If you haven’t already sent an email, please use our guide here to send an email to our county councillors. It’s easy to do, and really makes a BIG DIFFERENCE.

Apple Pressing Day | Diwrnod Gwasgu Afalau

October 23rd, 2017 | Posted by llangollen garden in Events - (Comments Off on Apple Pressing Day | Diwrnod Gwasgu Afalau)

We had a wonderful time pressing apples at the community garden. Over 50 people came along to help out, there was music, laughter and lots of apples and of course juice! Great teamwork on the day meant we got through a tremedous number of apples, producing juice to drink and take away. We also replenished our compost bays with the apple mush. Of course we also left plenty of apples on our tree for the local wildlife.

Many more images are available on our Facebook page. Many thanks go to everyone who came along to help out, brought apples, the band – The Glaaswalkers, and North Wales Wildlife Trust for lending us the pressing equipment.

Greenhouse

2014 will be the year of the greenhouse! We’ve removed the old fruit cage, leaving enough space to give our greenhouse a prime position in the garden. We still need to level the ground slightly, but by March the greenhouse should be fully installed.

Wild Weekend :: Come along and get involved!

September 29th, 2012 | Posted by llangollen garden in Events - (Comments Off on Wild Weekend :: Come along and get involved!)

On October 27th we will be taking part in the Keep Wales Tidy ‘Wild Weekend’ – We will be building some enhanced habitat zones. We will use material found on the site to create brash piles. Brash piles are great for wildlife and will help mark out some of the areas on site. If you like wildlife, or just want to help, this will be a great weekend to get involved!
