Event 158: Llanishen stream, Thornhill (20/01/18)

Over 30 volunteers turned out this morning to help clear litter and brambles from Llanishen stream at Thornhill.Cutting back thick brambles

In places the stream was completely covered in a dense layer of brambles several feet thick — it felt more like hacking a path through tropical jungle at times (except for the temperature!).

In just 2 hours we collected around 50 refuse sacks of litter and 15 huge “builders bags” of brambles — an excellent morning’s work!

And this is what the stream looked like the following morning…
