Yesterday, Cardiff Rivers Group returned to Hailey Park for the first time in over a year to clean up the River Taff. The 19 volunteers worked for 2 ½ hours and together they collected 11 bags of rubbish, lots of plastic industrial tubing and about 650kg scrap, including a tractor grass raking attachment.
More photos can be seen on our Flickr page.
Dave King, treasurer, said, ”We were delighted to see how litter-free the park was, so we focussed our efforts on the River itself. The volunteers worked really hard to remove a staggering amount of scrap metal from the river bed!”
All litter was disposed of by Cardiff Parks services.
Cardiff Rivers Group’s next event is next Sunday, 8th September. We are always looking for new volunteers, so if you would like to lend a hand, please contact Louise Tambini on 07824 504790 or e-mail email@example.com.
