A FARMER says he regrets renting one of his fields for a religious group to hold a camp near Wrexham.
Thomas Jones, of Hafod Y Bryn, Bwlchgwyn, claims he was misled over the size of the gathering, which took place last week.
Mr Jones also said he received a number of complaints from villagers about anti-social behaviour.
However one of the camp organisers, Levi Gorman, has insisted the event was law abiding, well organised and closely monitored and insisted Mr Jones had been kept fully informed over what was planned.
The camp, arranged by the Light and Life Missions Christian Fellowship, started on Saturday, August 10 and finished on the Wednesday evening last week.
Estimates of how many caravans attended varied between 60 to just under 100.
Mr Jones said: “I had a lot of trouble over the camp and I regret renting the field out now. There were a number of complaints about anti social behaviour, including a dog chasing a flock of sheep.
“The camp was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. It is a great relief they have gone.”
But in response Mr Gorman said: “We kept Mr Jones informed about what was happening. This was a small camp compared to others we hold. We had a very strict policy over the control of dogs, so no dogs from the camp would have been chasing sheep.
“The camp was peaceful, well organised, well monitored and law abiding. We are Christians.”
North Wales Police spokesman Michael McGivern said: “We received a number of calls over the period of the camp and attended at the area.”
A Bwlchgwyn resident, who asked not to be named, said: “People living here have been feeling intimidated at the sheer size of the camp.
“There were hundreds of occupants, compared to about 70 permanent residents living in houses nearby. People have been afraid to leave their homes.”
