Members of the History of Deganwy group who have been tending to the garden next to St Mary’s Well at Llanrhos were invited to meet the Wales in Bloom judge to explain the location.
As you may recall several members have been tending to the land around the Well for a number of years, the fence and display panel were erected in 2017. On a regular basis Kevin arranges a gardening day to tidy up the area, ensuring the well is clear of leaves and the ground is maintained in a good state of repair. In 2020 the History Group were successful in obtaining a Local Places for Nature – Wildlife Garden Starter package from Natur Cymru, which is part of Keep Wales Tidy. This kit comprised of a raised flower bed, trellis work, bird feeders and a variety of bulbs and plants, was installed next to the well. The plants are slowly maturing and the birds seem to love the food too!
In June 2021 we were informed that the Well would be included as part of the Deganwy in Bloom competition. We are now keeping our fingers crossed that we have helped in some small part for Deganwy to be recognised this year. Our thanks to Kevin, Arfon, Ifor, Gavin and Trefor.
