Cardiff Rivers Group made a good start on the Feeder Canal in Bute Park last weekend, with around 20 volunteers working for a couple of hours, we managed to collect 30 sacks of rubbish, 2 trolleys, a roll of carpet, several traffic cones as well as move a lot of fallen branches from the waterway, helping it’s flow and appearance. Photos from this event are available on our flickr galleries.
We aim to continue this work next weekend [Saturday the 21st], slowly moving towards the castle.
Tasks will include;
- A litter pick on both banks of the feeder and general Taff Trail area,
- Move & stack wood away from the edge of the feeder,
- Saw and move fallen branches from the water,
- Wading through the Feeder, removing as much debris as possible, improving the appearance of the Feeder as well as the flow of the water.
Volunteers are to meet at 09:45 for safety briefing & kit. This will be done from Dave’s truck, which will be parked within the park, around the Ambulance Depot. Close car parking options are; Pontcanna Fields changing room [ CF11 9HX ], within the Tal y Bont student halls [ CF14 3AS ] or near the North Road Ambulance Depot off North Road. See map below for general area.
