Faendre Reen, St Mellons (26 January 2020)

On Sunday 26 January, 51 volunteers from CRG and St Mellons Clean Up braved heavy rain and made a huge, and much-needed, difference to Faendre Reen and its surroundings, in St Mellons.

Together, they collected an incredible haul: over 130 bags of litter, at least 7 scooters, 2 kids bikes, 2 tricycles, 2 TVs, a hoover, a steam cleaner, several wet and heavy mattresses…

… a double headboard, numerous broken cupboards and doors, a bathtub, an ironing board, a keyboard, miscellaneous scrap…

… a 13 year old crisp packet, a traffic cone and a few (now not-so) cuddly toys. We even found Nemo!

You could pretty much furnish a house with what we found (although you wouldn’t want to live in it).

Many thanks to everyone who turned out, especially in such miserable weather!

And our thanks to Cardiff Council’s waste management team for collecting all the rubbish so promptly.
