A CLEAN up around a Wrexham country park is to take place this month.

People are invited to go and help the rangers tidy up Stryt Las Park - lying between Rhos and Johnstown.

This area is a haven for frogs, toads, smooth newts and palmate newts. But it is the Great crested newts that make the site so special.

Great crested newts are rare across their home of Northern Europe, but the low lying areas around Wrexham are a stronghold for these amphibians.

This means this area needs to remain clean and protected.

Attendees are asked to meet at the park entrance on Cwm Glas - with the event running between 1.30pm and 3pm.

The event is suitable for all ages and more information can be accessed by calling Wrexham Council’s Countryparks department on 01978 763140 or by emailing countryparks@wrexham.gov.uk
