G2G Communities CIC is working in partnership with Denbighshire Countryside Services to record the new developments at Rhyl Cut due to start on the 4 February 2013. Learners and staff at G2G Communities CIC have already taken photographs of the proposed development in December 2012 and will follow the project through to completion. The photographs and videos will be used to produce a multimedia record/case study of how the project progressed from beginning to end.
The project will transform this area into a community hotspot with walking, fishing and cycling being just some of the activities available, not just to the local community but to tourists to the area and those interested in wildlife and the environment.
Garry Davies, Countryside Officer for Denbighshire County Council, said: “The work will commence in late January. “We would like to thank all of our partners and the funding organisations which include WREN and the Welsh Government who are especially keen on the proposal. “A special mention also to Scottish Power who carried out work in relocating a high power electricity cable which was located in the proposed excavation area. “This was a major obstacle and which had to be overcome before we could even consider the project. Excellent community support has also been in place from the very beginning, and this is absolutely essential if the benefits from the project are to be sustained well into the future.”
The Director of G2G Communities CIC Moira Lockitt said: ‘G2G Communities CIC has already undertaken a number of free community based projects over the past two years and following the success of Rhyl in Bloom 2011/12 and Offa’s Dyke presentations this will be another real life project that our learners can get involved in that will benefit the local community by highlighting what Rhyl has to offer in the way of wildlife and the environment’.
‘We have also just completed over 20 wildlife ‘out and about’ guides as part of a small Lottery funded project and these will be available on DVD in Welsh/English by March 2013’.
