Next CRG: Mothers Day at Blackweir

On Sunday the 15th March, the next Cardiff Rivers Group event will be continuing their clean-up of the iconic River Taff, this time visiting Blackweir and surrounding areas.

As well as a general litter pick of the area, we will be tackling edges of the river as there is always a lot washed up debris from over the winter period.
Those brave souls who don’t mind getting wet, can don a pair of waders and will work downstream from the weir. There will be a limited by the number of waders available.
The others will either support the people in the rivers from the bank or litter pick either side of the river and surrounding areas. With Bute Park on one side, Pontcanna fields and the Dock feeder, this area has huge potential.Those travelling by car can park at the Pontcanna fields changing rooms and then follow the path walk across the park to Blackweir bridge.

Please note that it’s a 5-10 minutes’ walk from the changing rooms to Blackweir bridge.

At the bridge, look out for the truck with the Cardiff Rivers Group logo.
