VOLUNTEERS have finished planting a hedgerow at a Prestatyn nature reserve.

Throughout the winter, volunteers from Denbighshire County Council's Nature for Health programme have been planting the hedgerow along the edge of Coed Y Morfa Nature Reserve.

More than 20 volunteers attended a final planting session. The hedgerow, along the playing fields, is about 300 metres in length.

A spokesperson for Denbighshire County Council said: "Hedgerows are important for connectivity between woodlands and provide nesting sites for many bird species and other wildlife.

"The trees were funded by the Long Forest Project, a partnership between Keep Wales Tidy and the Woodland Trust, to encourage volunteer involvement in tree planting and hedgerow management."

Denbighshire Countryside Service is working in partnership with Denbighshire Housing to deliver the project with support from Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) and Bangor University.

Thanks was given to Gwyl Roche from Keep Wales Tidy, the Artisans Collective, Prestatyn and District Environment Association, Hedgehog Help Prestatyn and mayor of Prestatyn, councillor Anton Sampson for their help.
