A COUNTRY park has received more than £17,000 to help create an education centre within its grounds.

Wepre Park in Connah's Quay received the windfall from a £367,000 pot designed to help keep communities across North Wales looking their best.

The funding is part of the Tidy Towns initiative in which the Welsh Government is providing £2.2million to help communities improve their local area and tackle problems such as littering, fly tipping, dog fouling and vandalism.

The money will allow the Friends of Wepre Park to transform a neglected area of land that is subject to litter, dog fouling and antisocial behaviour into a wildlife and education area.

John Griffiths, Welsh Government Minister for Natural Resources, Culture and Sport, said: "We should all be able to feel proud of where we live but, unfortunately, problems such as fly tipping, dog fouling and littering can affect the way we feel about our local communities."
