Our new boat’s first launch!

Today – Sunday 17 June – saw the first launching of CRG’s new boat!

Thanks to generous donations from Viridor, EMR Metal Recycling, and Welsh Water/Dwr Cymru CRG has recently bought a boat (a work punt), electric outboard motor and trailer. And a grant from the Cardiff YMCA (1910) Trust will be used to train volunteers in the safe use of the boat.

This will enable us to remove rubbish from areas that we haven’t previously been able to reach.
