Local projects that will help ‘Team Wales’ tackle climate and nature emergencies


Three local projects have been confirmed by the Welsh Government to be amongst 29 projects across Wales that benefit from the Nature Networks Fund.

The Nature Networks Fund was confirmed in March this year with the Welsh Government promising to invest in the ‘condition and connectivity’ of the protected site network, supported by the ‘active involvement of local communities’.

The Minister for Climate Change will confirm £7m of Welsh Government support for these projects in the Senedd.

The sites supported provide a vital sanctuary and high level of protection to nearly 70 species, and more than 50 types of habitats which face threats worldwide.

They also contribute significantly to the Welsh economy through tourism, recreation, farming, fishing and forestry. And they provide vital life-support services for all of us – including purifying drinking water, and storing carbon.

National Heritage Memorial Fund has taken responsibility for administering the Nature Networks Fund, Andrew White – Director of The National Lottery Heritage Fund in Wales said:

“From restoring wetlands, to creating rich habitat for wildlife to flourish, it is vital that we preserve and rebuild our natural heritage.”

The three most local projects are:

Llanymynech Golf Club Restoration for Butterflies, Llanymynech Golf Club – £91,400
Part of Llanymynech Hill SSSI, has rare bryophytes and is one of the best sites for butterflies in Wales, with the very rare pearl bordered fritillary recorded there recently. The project will clear scrub and reintroduce some grazing using both sheep and cattle and also to restore and then manage areas of bracken that are infested with bramble.


Lake Vyrnwy, RSPB Cymru – £499,500
Project aims to improve the condition and resilience of the RSPB’s landholdings around the Lake Vyrnwy Estate, benefitting from a wider programme of work. This funding would support key conservation actions including blanket bog restoration on former conifer plantation, predator control, landscape scale approaches, including farmer-led support, and enhanced conservation grazing.


Luronium Futures – Montgomery Canal, Canal & River Trust – £357,800
Site of SSSI due to aquatic, emergent and marginal plant communities of exceptional interest. The towpath affords easy access for local people and visitors. This project aims to improve the canal channel conditions for rare plants and to enhance its conservation status.

Limeworks noticeboard goes missing

Hoffmann lime kiln, Llanymynech

Llanymynech & Pant Parish Council is seeking help to find a missing noticeboard.

Can you help the Parish Council track down an oak noticeboard that has gone missing, sometime after the end of October?

The £1,500 noticeboard was reported damaged in October and was lying flat on the ground just beyond the Limeworks sculpture at the heritage site entrance in Llanymynech.

When a contractor went to carry out a repair, the board couldn’t be found and, after enquiries of local volunteers and rangers at the heritage site, it was reported to the police. The police searched the area without success, so the disappearance has now been recorded on their crime website.

Installed as part of the Heritage Lottery Project, which was carried out on the Limeworks in 2005/6, the board cost £1,569 and provided information to visitors about the Hoffmann Kiln in the Heritage Area.

If anyone took the board – perhaps for firewood but still has it – the Parish Council would be really grateful for its return so it can be reinstated in the Heritage Area and carry on providing information to visitors, when they return after lockdown.

Although perhaps seen as a minor crime, the replacement of this noticeboard will take funds away from the Parish Council and ultimately the whole community.

If anyone has any information about the whereabouts or fate of the noticeboard, please contact the Parish Council clerk by email landpcouncil@btinternet.com or send us a message using the contact form on this website if you wish to remain anonymous.
