Community clean-up planned for Meliden

Denbighshire County Council’s housing team is joining forces with a local primary school and Keep Wales Tidy, in a bid to clean up their local area.

Pupils and parents from Ysgol Melyd will take part in a litter picking event aimed at improving and clearing their village.

Children from the foundation phase (Nursery to age 6) will be out and about on the morning of Tuesday 18th July, whilst pupils aged 7-11 will be collecting rubbish on Wednesday 19th.

Headmaster Dafydd Jones commented: “We encourage all of our pupils at Ysgol Melyd to take pride in their local environment so are delighted to have this opportunity to play our part in helping keep our community clean and tidy. It is also a pleasure to work in partnership with parents and others to make a positive difference to the community of Meliden.”

Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead member for Housing, said: “The Council works hard to maintain a clean and pleasant environment, but it is great to involve the pupils and parents in this initiative.

“Harnessing the enthusiasm of our youngsters is crucial in creating a sense of pride in our communities. Hopefully, this will inspire our young people to take care of their locality from an early age.”
