The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales are extremely excited to announce that our project - Building Better Boardwalks at the Welsh Wildlife Centre has been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco’s Bag’s of Help initiative!
As many of our regular visitors will know; parts of the boardwalk on our wetland trail is getting old and unstable in places and badly need replacing. Nia Stephens, People and Wildlife Officer said “We would like to replace parts of the boardwalk using recycled plastic supports and bearers which will last much longer in the wet conditions than wood. Replacing boardwalk, especially using recycled plastic is very expensive and without this possible grant from Tesco’s Bags of Help we would be unable to fund the project.”
From the 31st of October until 13th November you can vote for the project in Tesco stores in Cardigan, Carmarthen, Haverfordwest, Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock. Your vote will help us secure a Tesco Bags of Help grant of up to £12,000. Customers shopping in the above Tesco’s stores will be given a token with every transaction. Customers can then use their token to vote for their preferred project at the instore voting unit.

Thanks very much in advance from the whole team here at the Welsh Wildlife Centre and The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales!
