wild wales: BEACH CLEANERS WANTED TO GIVE NATURE A HAND.

WILDLIFE enthusiasts will get the chance to learn about nature while helping preserve the environment this weekend.

A beach clean event is being held in Kinmel Bay, near Rhyl tomorrow as part of Biodiversity Week.

Adults and children are invited to help clear up the litter from Kinmel Bay beach with staff from Conwy's Countryside Services.

There will be an officer from Marine Awareness North Wales present to help identify any interesting marine wildlife found on the beach on the day.

Litter-pickers and nature lovers should meet in the car park at Kinmel Beach (map ref GR SH987806) at 2pm.

Continuing the green theme, with summer here to stay the barbecue season is well under way, and Conwy county is holding open days to raise awareness of the importance of recycling the increased waste the summer brings.

The open days are being held at Conwy's new bulking station at Gofer, Rhuddlan Road, Abergele on Monday and Tuesday, June 19 and 20.

They have been organised as part of the national Big Recycle campaign to encourage people to recycle more to help conserve the national beauty of Wales for future generations.

The events will showcase the kerbside recycling scheme, recycling amenities and partnership schemes in Conwy.

Tony Sykes, Conwy's waste strategy manager, said: "A lot of waste is created at events and over the summer period so this is an excellent way of highlighting the fact that we can all do more to help raise Wales' recycling rates above 25%."

People are invited to join the open days at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm on Monday and Tuesday. Refreshments will be provided. Call 01492 575334 for more information.

For more details, call Becky Groves, Conwy biodiversity officer, on 01492 575123/575200 or e-mail her at becky.groves@conwy.gov.uk
