Work starts on pounds 750k restoration.

WORK yesterday began on restoring the overgrown grounds of a historic hall as part of a pounds 750,000 project.

Flintshire Council was awarded the cash by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which will be spent reviving the gardens at Wepre Park in Deeside.

Sarah Jeffery has been appointed as development officer and will be consulting on the proposals for the site.

Green-fingered members of the public got involved yesterday by weeding and planting.

Meanwhile a master plan is being drawn up to recreate the estate's formal garden and lawns as well as a kitchen garden, woodland garden and restoring a cedar avenue.

It is hoped to be submitted in August.
