A PEBBLE snake created in support of the NHS will be turned into works of art.

Sara Fisher and Samantha Ley, both of Prestatyn, and their children Faith, Macy, Eden and Tomos, were behind the pebble snake on the Prestatyn Dyserth way.

To date there have been about 1,440 stones that have some form of artwork on them.

The pebbles, put together, stretch for 355 metres

Residents have also created a pebble snake stretching around the Brickfields Pond in Rhyl.

They are now set to be turned into snake art works at other local sites in a project involving local environmental artist Tim Pugh.

A spokesperson from Denbighshire County Council said: "Families that have got involved in creating their pebbles are asked to go and collect their artistic pieces and keep hold of them until an art workshop has been arranged. Everyone is asked to collect their stones by July 17, after then the remaining pebbles will be cleared.

"Working together with the artist, the workshops will involve painting or re-painting the pebbles which will then form part of a snake art work.

"Anyone who hasn’t already painted a rock or contributed will have the opportunity to come along and be a part of this, several workshops will be held at local sites to create multiple snakes, creating a legacy of the efforts of the local community."

The snake was create 'to bring the community together'.

The new project is being led by Denbighshire Countryside Service, via the Natural Resources and Well-being (ENRaW) project, with support from the Office of James Davies, MP for Vale of Clwyd, and Prestatyn Town Council.
