Ogmore CF32 0PA + Google Map

For our next event we're taking a little trip to the seaside (well, close to it, anyway) and doing a clean up of the River Ogmore. We are meeting at 09:30 — a slightly earlier start — in the car park on the right-hand side of the B4524 between Ewenny and Ogmore-by-Sea, about 3/4 of a mile after 'The Pelican in her Piety' pub. (Map below.)  The postcode CF32 0PA will get you there. There will be something for everyone.…

Llanishen Brook (Merlin Close)

Thursday, 8 November, 2018, 9:45 am12:00 pm
Llanishen Brook (Merlin Close) Cardiff, CF14 9AW + Google Map

We have been asked by Cardiff Parks to help with a problem with Llanishen brook. A long section of the brook is overgrown again and the vegetation has been completely taken over, so the stream disappears from view under brambles. Our mission (should we chose to accept it) will be to cut the overgrowth back to the edge of the bank and remove the vegetation obscuring the view of the stream, improving access to a culvert and grill. For those…

Grangemoor Park

Saturday, 24 November, 2018, 9:45 am12:00 pm
Grangemoor Park Cardiff, CF11 0JR United Kingdom + Google Map

We'll be pulling reeds in the pond, clearing vegetation from some ditches, and doing a litter-pick around the park and along the Ely trail. Something for everyone! Come along and Make A DIFFerence! All tools and equipment — gloves, litter-pickers, bags, hoops, safety glasses, etc — will be provided. Please wear wellies, boots or stout shoes, and suitable 'work' clothing, as it will probably be muddy. You might also want to bring waterproofs in case of wet weather. Some pairs…

CANCELLED – Hamadryad Park

Saturday, 1 December, 2018, 9:45 am12:00 pm

Sadly, we're forced to cancel this Saturday's event at Hamadryad Park. Yet again, we've been beaten by the weather. The heavy rain we've just had, with more forecast tomorrow, means that the volume of water flowing down the Taff will be too high on Saturday to work safely in the reeds and along the water's edge at Hamadryad Park. We aim to re-arrange this event sometime in the New Year.

On Wednesday, 5 December, we'll be down in Cardiff Bay. Meet in front of the Watermark apartments, at the junction of Ferry Road and International Drive.

But we’ll also be doing a litter-pick in the surrounding areas of the Boardwalk and Prospect…

Hamadryad Park (Windsor Esplanade entrance), Windsor Esplanade

On Saturday morning, 22 December, we'll be cleaning up Hamadryad Park. As ever, there'll be plenty to do. Meet: Under the flyover, at the entrance to Hamadryad Park Parking: Cardiff Yacht Club, Windsor Esplanade CF10 5BG A large area of reeds on the water's edge has recently been cut, revealing an appalling amount of rubbish that's been washed down the Taff over the past months (and probably years), so we'll be removing that.

Hamadryad Park (revisited)

Hamadryad Park (Windsor Esplanade entrance), Windsor Esplanade
Cardiff, CF10 5BG United Kingdom
+ Google Map

On Saturday morning, 5 January we'll be returning to Hamadryad Park, as there's still plenty to do there. At our last event we cleared a huge amount of rubbish that'd been washed down the Taff and trapped by the reeds. However, there's still a lot of rubbish there, so we thought we'd kick off 2019 by going back and clearing some more! Wellies or good boots are strongly advised, as it's wet and muddy. If you have waders, even better!…
