A company has said thank you to a Wrexham community, in a beautiful and lasting way.

Novus Solution's Wrexham office team recently planted a wildflower meadow on Tan Y Dre, Wrexham.

While completing several contracts for Wrexham County Borough Council, it had been necessary for the team to build a large site compound for the storage of heavy plant and materials.

Its construction meant using an area of green space usually enjoyed by the local community.

The compound has now been relocated, and the team wanted to give back to the residents as a ‘thank you’ for their co-operation during the works.

Following discussions with the residents, local councillor Ronnie Prince and the council, it was agreed that planting a wildflower meadow in the area would not only make it more pleasant, but would also create a welcoming environment for local wildlife.

Once agreed, the Novus team enlisted the help of the North Wales Wildlife Trust, who came along to advise how best to prepare and plant the area, and then carry out the works.

As a business, Novus has paid for the preparation, seeding and two years of maintenance of this wildflower meadow.

Novus operations manager Steve Stockford said: “At Novus we believe strongly in our environmental credentials, and it has been a pleasure doing this work for the local community.

"It is wonderful to see the wildflower meadow now in bloom.

"We would like to thank WCBC and the local community for their help, understanding and support on this project and their co-operation whilst works in the area have been taking place.”

Resident Alan Jones said: “The wildflowers are fantastic, environmentally friendly, really colourful. We really like it."

Cllr Prince said: “We’ve done a lot of work on this scheme to get to this point, but we got there in the end.

"The residents will get great pleasure from the wildflowers meadow for a number of years to come."

WCBC surveyor Graham Houston added: “It’s a great scheme."
