Bryngwyn Pupils Participation in Landscape Project Puts Station on the Right Track

An environment improvement project involving nine Year 10 pupils from Bryngwyn School in Llanelli has been officially unveiled by the Mayor of Llanelli, Councillor Linda Stedman.

The Mayor unveiled a commemorative plaque on the station to celebrate the completion of a four week landscaping project undertaken by students from Bryngwyn School in partnership with Carmarthenshire County Council Youth Service's Engage Project, Arts Care / Gofal Celf, Arriva Trains Wales and Celtic Concrete Products.

The project included repainting the inside of the station footbridge and the creation of eight raised flower beds on the platforms.  The flower beds, an accredited activity, were funded by the European Social Fund as part of the ‘Engage Project’. 

In addition to improving the environment and appearance of the station, the overall aim of the project was to provide further, individualised and intensive support for young people to ensure that they gain skills and confidence to succeed in education, employment and training.  The pupils learned how the raised beds were constructed, helped to fill them with soil and chose the plants under the guidance of landscape gardener Elaine Murphy of Arts Care / Gofal Celf.

Karen Morris, school based youth worker at Bryngwyn School, said; “The pupils have really enjoyed taking part in this project.  It has given them the opportunity to be involved in something they may otherwise not have been able to.  The school is grateful to have been able to participate in a worthwhile community project, which will certainly benefit the pupils with their future career aspirations.” 

Geraint Morgan, community affairs manager for Arriva Trains Wales said: “The project has given the pupils the opportunity learn new skills and gain valuable experience in the workplace.  The station is, too many, their first impression of the town, therefore a clean and presentable environment is important.  The pupils can be proud of their achievement, which has improved the appearance of the station and complements the recently refurbished ticket office.”
