Published: 14/05/2015

Flintshire County Council’s flagship park will be the focus of a half hour programme on BBC 2 Wales today (Thursday 14 May). Iolo’s Great Welsh Parks is a BBC series highlighting four parks and looking at their wildlife over the changing seasons. Connah’s Quay’s Wepre Park, its rangers, volunteers and wildlife, was filmed throughout 2014. Presenter Iolo Williams joined the Countryside Rangers as they surveyed for rare great crested newts; he also enjoyed tracking down badgers and having a close encounter with a wood mouse. The programme originally aired on BBC 1 Wales in January. Councillor Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “It is wonderful that Wepre Park is once more being showcased in this way. If you miss the programme, it will be available on the BBC iPlayer for a week following the broadcast. The programme will be available here:
