Cllr. Smith-Higgins added "We should consider ourselves very fortunate indeed to have a nature reserve on our doorstep here in Henllys, and extremely lucky to have a group of people who freely give their time to keep it in good order. I was delighted to be able to make a small contribution in time to help out and I would urge others to spare some time as well...litter picking can be quite therapeutic!"

|The team with haul|
We were joined by local Henllys Community Council's Cllr. Lawrence Smith-Higgins and a new volunteer Brian. Both came along to the last Friday's consulation on the Welsh Govenment funded Local Authority led Tidy Towns Grant that was recently awarded to the Local Nature Reserve. Their first taste of the grant was wearing a pair of gripper gloves. Previous to this, we all brought our own gloves to events, so this is a great start again for the group.
