A PORT Talbot group is to turn a run-down community garden into a wildlife haven.

The Taibach Action Group (Tag), which was formed almost a decade ago, has received £1,000 as part of the wild flower seed sowing campaign, Grow Wild.

Thanks to the funding the group will be able to transform the run-down community garden at Taibach Community Education Centre into a beauty spot.

It will include wooden raised beds for seasonal planting of wild flowers, wild herbs, vegetables and salads, which will be built by the skills and training environmental team, Neath, to ensure their learners gain work experience skills, using wood kindly donated by Jewsons, Swansea.

Chairman of Tag Matthew Ireland said: "It's been great to get involved with Grow Wild — it's such an amazing opportunity to improve this community garden.

"Thanks to the local Skills and Training Unit, as well as the kind donations of materials by local businesses, we're looking forward to bringing this area back to life this summer."

Grow Wild is supported by the Big Lottery Fund and led by the Royal Botanic Gardens.
