A reminder of the two Cardiff Rivers Group meetings taking place this weekend.
We’re having a short committee meeting on Friday at the Mochyn Du. Committee commences at 5:30 followed by a drink or two. Mochyn Du is the pub next to the Wales Institute of Sport in Sophia Gardens.
Our next clearup is on Sunday. Activities will include litter-picking the Taff Trail and riverbank from Forest Farm working towards Radyr as well as clearing overgrown vegetation from the trail. We will be meeting in the car park at Forest Farm, see their website for directions and a map : forestfarm.org.uk, or find via their postcode CF14 7JJ. If walking, cycling or using public transport, Forest Farm is close to Radyr railway station, from the station, cross the river using the footbridge then join the path that leads away from the river [not the Taff Trail]. Turn right within 60meters [200yrds] onto a road, which will bring you Forest Farm.
Volunteers are to meet at 09:45 for a safety briefing.We will provide litter-pickers, gloves, brushes and bags but if you have any loppers/saws please bring them as we have limited supply.
Please can you let Louise know if you are coming on Sunday so we can wait at Forest Farm before moving onto the trail. Please wear suitable footwear and clothing and bring drinking water.
Another two events that might interest are ‘Fête of the Earth’ event at the Central Library all day Saturday. Expect a jammed packed programme with stalls offering information and activities to help people learn about sustainability, as well as talks and film showings in the evening. More information at the library, as well as Cardiff City Council website : cardiff.gov.uk. Finally, Keep Wales Tidy staff and volunteers (including 5 volunteers from CRG!) will cycle the Taff Trail on the 19th of June to raise funds for Pedal Power – a bike charity based in Pontcanna fields. Please sponsor us at our ‘Just Giving’ site : justgiving.com/KWT, thanks.
We hope to see you this weekend.
