A LONG overdue plaque to commemorate a new greenhouse in Corwen was presented to the Edeyrnion Allotments and Community Growers group.

The gardeners at the Uwch Y Dre allotments selected their new greenhouse in early 2020 - but the Covid-19 pandemic meant they faced a long wait for it to be set up on site.

The kit was delivered to group chairman Terry Mallon’s home and was transported to site in Autumn 2020, where it was eventually constructed by members.

However, a plaque to commemorate the occasion - as well as a full gathering of members - was only just able to take place at the end of last month, officially celebrating work to get the greenhouse, made possible through a grant, set up.

The presentation of the plaque from the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) took place at the Cae Ffynnon allotments in Uwch Y Dre.

Edeyrnion Allotments and Community Growers chairman Terry Mallon was joined by members of the group and Jane Moore, a Denbigh-based representative of the NGS to commemorate their success in obtaining the grant to build their greenhouse.

A spokesperson for the group said: "Jane Moore had a tour of the Community Garden and the allotments and was impressed by the solar-powered watering system and shed-light designed and installed by the gardeners.

"Rebecca Roberts, DCC’s local Community Wellbeing Officer and secretary of the society also attended with family and neighbours who are regular helpers in the Community Garden.

"SDCP/Canolfan Ni, who provide so much help and support to community organisations, made their minibus available so attendees did not need to park vehicles on Cae Ffynnon and were represented by Sally Lloyd Davies."
