Background

The Community Garden Project is part of the Well-Being Matters Project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

The aim of the group is to get carers and those they care for involved in nature as a way of promoting mental, physical and emotional well-being.

It started with just a few carers sharing ideas and now we have links with over 8 local community projects helping to connect! Including members from Pure Vegetable Well-Being, Horticulture Wales and Incredible Edible. 

Get involved!

We’re a small but perfectly formed group of volunteer enthusiasts (carers and ex carers) that come together monthly to help steer and plan activities, share ideas and generally motivate others to get outdoors and involved in garden projects. 

If you’d like to get involved please get in touch and become a part of something exciting! We have regular Zoom meetings and group outings, restrictions permitting.

Great Big Green Week

Members of Transition Holywell & District are proud that five Holywell area groups (including NEWCIS) joined thousands of other community groups around the UK for the Great Big Green Week earlier this month (September 2021). The groups wanted to show they care about our beautiful planet by getting out and taking Earth-friendly actions! 

The Great Big Green Week is a Climate Coalition campaign.
