Some of the Tidy Towns Works

As many of you may know, TCBC was lucky enough to be awarded a Tidy Towns grant to improve Henllys Local Nature Reserve. We've drawn up a map detailing some of the larger activities from the grant that may be more obvious. Many of these are to increase access to the wider community, but more importantly have opened up much more of the LNR which has been inaccessible for many years. The most impressive is the Villager's orchard in the south eastern section of the LNR with a new easy access from Henllys Way and along a stone path (which should green over and just provide a nicer walking surface) and across a newly constructed bridge, gate and mobility access gate.

The whole southern section was very difficult to get through and was becoming a HImalayan balsam reserve due to protection from brambles. Following up behind the contractors tractor was TCBC's ranger, vols and ourselves clearing areas which were not accessible by tractor.
