A 'TINY forest' has been planted on a playing field.

Darren Millar, Clwyd West MS, praised all those involved in the community wide tree planting programme in Towyn and Kinmel Bay after a site visit this week.

The Playing Field on St Asaph Avenue, Kinmel Bay, is one of five locations in Wales where a Tiny Forest has been planted.

Towyn and Kinmel Bay Town Council has also planted about 40 trees elsewhere in the community, including a number of fruit trees in the Chester Avenue Community Woodland.

On Monday, Mr Millar met with cllr Morris Jones of Towyn and Kinmel Bay Town Council to discuss the progress that has been made and see newly planted trees on Llys Cynffig in Kinmel Bay.

Mr Millar said: “Having been involved in planting some trees at the tiny forest earlier this year, it was great to return on to see what further progress the town council and its partners have made with their tree planting efforts.

“In total they have planted over 1,000 trees in the tiny forest and over 40 other trees in green spaces, verges and a local community orchard as part of its environmental improvement work over the past 12 months.

“This is a fantastic achievement and I thank everyone who has been involved.

“Trees make open spaces attractive, improve air quality and are wonderful for wildlife, as a local resident, I for one am grateful for the environmental improvements in the area in recent months.”
