A COMMUNITY support group which has doubled in size is setting up home in Rhuddlan.

Love: North Wales Community Support is taking over the former Aztec Oils Cymru unit on HTM Business Park. The 2,300sqft space will allow the group to continue with the well-established foodbank and provide baby goods, clothes, medical aids, kitchenware and furniture to those in need.

They also hope to host a variety of craft, PC and phone tech, art, music and dance classes.

Brian Taylor, founder of Love: North Wales Community Support said: “We’re very excited to be moving into our new, bigger premises. The growth of the group has been phenomenal and the continued support demonstrated by the North Wales community daily is truly humbling to be a part of."

The group will be moving in over the coming days but the unit does need some work.

Brian added: “We have the much-needed extra space now and hope to be able to do even more as a community support group, including the addition of a variety of classes, however there’s still plenty of work to do in our new space. We really need more shelving, bookcases, wardrobes – anything we can use to store things properly. Plus if anyone has any grey or white paint they could donate we would very gladly take that.”

Love: North Wales Community Support group works alongside charities, agencies and charitable groups like DASU (domestic abuse) The Wallich (Homeless) Kaleidoscope (ex-offenders) Warm Wales, Denbighshire Homeless Unit.

Funds are being raised for a van, which in turn will also benefit Idlewild Animal Sanctuary in Conwy Valley who are selling the van so they can purchase an animal ambulance in order to run their new animal hospital. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for any interested North Wales businesses.
