Theatr na nÓg and Cefn Saeson Comprehensive School have been awarded a new garden package by environmental charity Keep Wales Tidy. They are one of the first organisations and schools in the country to benefit from this year’s Local Places for Nature scheme.
Theatr na nÓg and Cefn Saeson will be creating a pollinator garden at Theatr na nÓg’s base on Milland Road Industrial Estate in Neath. All the plants, tools and materials are being provided for free by Keep Wales Tidy.
Ioan Hefin from Theatr na nÓg said: “From a personal level, I always resort to going ‘back to nature’ whenever I possibly can. It’s the place and mindset that allows me to make sense of the world around me. Being able to share those feelings and connections via the generous support of ‘Keep Wales Tidy’ and the Welsh government is a precious opportunity to share these emotions with others – experts and novices alike. Every conversation is a starting point. This support has facilitated multiple conversations and now it’s time to get our hands dirty!”
Rhys Hearne, Youth Engagement Worker at Cefn Saeson Comprehensive School said: “The garden has been a great opportunity for our young people to involved in a project in their community. Our young people do not often get the chance to be involved in projects such as this and the staff at Theatr na nÓg have been excellent in accommodating us.”
