The green fingers of children who volunteered to transform a residential home in Llanelli, west Wales, have helped nurture a special bond between the young and the more mature.
During the summer, the volunteers shovelled 20 tonnes of top soil, plants, flowers and shrubs to give the overgrown gardens at the Hafan y Morfa complex in Morfa a new lease of life.
The project was run by Communities First Glanymor with the British Trust Conservation of Volunteers and Morfa Youth and Carmarthenshire Youth Service. The garden was officially opened last month.
Regeneration executive board member Councillor Clive Scourfield said:
"Communities First Glanymor is a very active team that is helping to bring community members together.
"The young people of Morfa have achieved something wonderful and they are thrilled with the outcome. This kind of community spirit can only improve the quality of life for residents in Carmarthenshire."
