AGENCIES from across Wrexham came together at Caia Park for an environmental action day.
The event was aimed at helping to clean up the area and safeguard the well-being of the residents.
Caia Park Communities First Community Safety Group organised the action in partnership with North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, North Wales Police, Wrexham County Council Streetscene, Wrexham Housing Office, Nacro’s C.A.I.A project and The Environment Agency.
They worked together to tackle problems such as rubbish on the streets and gardens, untaxed, dangerous or abandoned vehicles and graffiti in the Y Wern and Gwenfro areas of the estate.
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service gave fire safety advice to residents, visited 70 homes and carried out 22 free home fire safety checks where a free smoke alarm was fitted if needed.
North Wales Police officers also gave crime prevention advice.
During the day, six skips were filled with around nine tonnes of rubbish.
Over half a tonne of metal was also collected for recycling and the Y Wern Community Garden was created by Nacro’s C.A.I.A project and local residents.
Clair Evans, of Caia Park Communities First, said: “There were many comments that the day was highly enjoyable for all involved. A big thank you everyone for all for their hard work and kind contributions.”
