Volunteers Working To Improve Bangor

Bangor is set to get a boost this summer thanks to a number of volunteers who have experience of substance misuse and mental health issues but who want to give back to the community.

The North Wales Chronicle revealed that the volunteers are helping clean up the city centre, by removing graffiti and fly posters, and doing work on the Bible Gardens to clean up litter, remove weeds and tidy up leaves.

According to the newspaper, the group are doing these good deeds to celebrate their recoveries from their issues. They’re backed by the city council and the Bangor Business Improvement District.

Cyfle Cymru are providing peer mentors to help those who’ve been affected by mental health problems or substance misuse to build up their confidence, as well as to give them access to training, work experience and other support.

Beverley Jones, an employment adviser, said that these kinds of volunteering events can be really beneficial for those taking part in the activities, as well as for residents of the city.

“Being together with other people, getting outside, and working to improve the community really helps to build self-esteem - and is delivering great results for Bangor too,” she stated.

One of the projects they’ll be getting involved with is the restoration of Garth Pier. The Daily Post recently revealed that £1 million will be spent on restoring the historic pier and bringing it back to its best.

As well as improving the safety of the structure, the funds will also be used to install new handrails on the pier deck.
