There are bikes available for all abilities, a traffic-free cycle path with bikes available. The cost to hire is only £5 per session. We include helmets in the bike hire although people are welcome to bring their own. Pedal Power certainly can’t wait to have you back.”

Groundwork North Wales

Groundwork North Wales (GNW) works alongside local communities, public bodies, private companies and also other voluntary sector organisations to support communities in need.

GNW supports people facing multiple challenges. These challenges include living in isolation, suffering from significant health issues or having limited employment prospects. Moreover, they also protect those that are vulnerable to the economic and environmental uncertainty of society today. They do this by creating better places and improving people’s opportunities. Groundwork also promotes greener choices through their diverse range of projects and services.

They continue to grow their training offer. This year, for example, saw the development of the Pathways range of courses for those furthest from the job market. These courses provide individuals with entry-level qualifications for sectors such as retail, hospitality, health and social care, childcare and construction. Many participants have gone on to employment, into education or volunteering. All have reported improved self-esteem and confidence due to their achievements.

The need to engage people with their natural surroundings and their environmental impact is more vital than ever. This is especially true with the government having recently declared a “nature emergency”.
