A new ‘living green wall’ has been planted in Haverfordwest with the aim of improving local biodiversity and enhancing the riverside area in the heart of the town.

The feature, situated on the walkway opposite Glan-yr-Afon library and cultural centre, has been planted with native species of ferns, herbs and flowering plants, with flood-resistant plants at the base. Two Welsh slate seats have also been installed.

The scheme is part of the wider Cleddau Reaches Partnership Project which is working to create and enhance green infrastructure around Haverfordwest.  The partners are Pembrokeshire County Council, Haverfordwest Town Council, the Bridge Meadow Trust, Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and Haverfordwest Kayak Club.

Town Mayor, Councillor Sue Murray, said: “Haverfordwest Town Council and The Bridge Meadow Trust is proud to work in partnership on a project which is of great benefit for the town and the county.”

The Cleddau Reaches project forms one of the priorities in the Haverfordwest Regeneration framework.
