Many people find this very rewarding as the runners really appreciate them. They would get a race T-shirt and a goody bag, and of course thanks from all of us.

Bridge wildflowers Print
Thursday, 28 July 2016 09:15

A new wildflower meadow has been created in Holt.

The field can be found to the right hand side of road crossing the Holt / Farndon bridge (just beside the Bridge Salon) and is now in flower. The idea was promoted by Jonny Hulson from the North Wales Wildlife Trust and the field owners, Andrew and Val Pridding and family, were delight to have their field used to bring colour to this part of the village. The work associated with preparing and sowing the seed was carried out by the NWWT.
