A WILDFLOWER meadow on a nature reserve has been transformed and named in memory of its founder.
More than 100 children from various Rhuddlan groups including Cylch Meithrin, Cubs, Beavers, Scouts, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides along with volunteer and Rhuddlan councillors, cleared land on Rhuddlan Nature Reserve.
The land, was acquired by Raymond Fagan, 56, who entered into a partnership agreement with Denbighshire Council and numerous community groups to found the reserve.
Mr Fagan, who set up the reserve in memory of his parents, died in July after a long battle with cancer.
Brenda Taylor, of Rhuddlan Environment Group, said: “The event was organised and paid for by the group. Volunteers spent many weeks cutting back invasive weeds on the site, removing from ragwort, Himalayan balsam, treated Japanese knotweed and cut and removed brambles and burdock.
“Without the assistance from councillor Reginald Davies cutting back with his machinery the project would not have advanced.
“The main dry meadow will be known locally as Fagansfiled dedicated to Mr Fagan who was Rhuddlan Environment Group's patron.”
Mr Fagan was a Welsh-speaking former Ysgol Glan Clwyd pupil who was a long-serving partner at London-based finance firm Cavendish, having joined in 1999.
