RESIDENTS in Chirk have come together to revamp a patch of land by their flats.
With help from Christine Ashford of Chirk Community Forum and The Community Church in Chirk, residents of a block of flats in Coronation Drive transformed the grassy land outside, which had about 20 metal washing line posts.
Over a period of four weeks, the area has been given a new lease of life with raised flower beds and a vegetable patch.
Mike Baldwin of the Community Church said the project was rewarding for the residents.
He said: “The Community Church in Chirk has been involved in the project from the start after we had volunteered to play a part in the upgrading of the town's environment.
“Christine Ashford asked us to help with this new and exciting project providing a garden area for the residents of one of the blocks of flats. We decided to dedicate our Sunday mornings to this for a month, as for some time we have known that our church's direction is more to get out into the community and take God’s love to the people in a practical way.
“We have all enjoyed ourselves and helped build a very pleasant garden area.”
