Parc Howard Association has partnered with the pupils, staff and governors of Old Road Primary School to work on a project, entitled ‘Old Road School Rainscape and Biodiversity Project’.
The work is in line with Dwr Cymru’s Rainscape project in Llanelli, to reduce the risk of flooding and in order to increase the biodiversity in Parc Howard.
On Thursday, (Mar 9) a group of Year 3 and 4 pupils planted tree saplings in the Park. These included, birch, cherry, hazel and rowan trees, which were donated to the Parc Howard Association by the Woodland Trust. In the past three days, with the assistance of Old Road Primary School, 70 new trees have been planted in Parc Howard. This is a significant step forward in ensuring that the biodiversity in the Parc is improved, leading to a much richer and sustainable habitat for plants and animals.
The Parc Howard Association said that they would like to thank the pupils of Old Road Primary School for their support, together with their staff and Mrs Neave, the Headteacher. There are further plans to put up bird and bug boxes in the Parc, in the weeks ahead. The Association would also like to thank David Bannister, a committee member and his volunteers for their support.
