New nature homes for smaller wildlife residents have been created at Rhyl Library this week.

As part of The Great Big Green Week’s encouragement for community action to tackle climate change and protect nature, library staff linked up with Working Denbighshire to create a brand new bug hotel.

Rhyl Library has committed to be ‘Bee Friendly’, providing an area for pollinator friendly flowers and places for insects to live and thrive.

Library and Working Denbighshire staff, plus two participants of the service, built the bug hotel out of old pallets from deliveries, cardboard boxes and tubes.

The new addition to support local wildlife is now situated in Rhyl Library’s garden.

Cllr Barry Mellor, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “This fantastic work at the library is really important to help support and improve the local biodiversity around Rhyl. The volunteers and staff have done a brilliant job in creating this vital homes for our smallest wildlife which will benefit biodiversity moving forward.”
