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.

Cardiff, CF10 5BG United Kingdom

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!…
