Blackweir, Pontcanna Fields & Bute Park

Storm Dennis Cleanup #1

On Sunday 23rd February we will have the first of what will be several events to help clean up Cardiff after Storm Dennis.

Our first one will be in Blackweir, Pontcanna Fields and the northern end of Bute Park, which were all flooded and have had loads of rubbish deposited on them. We are keen to get as many people along as possible, to make as much of a difference as we can.

Meet just downstream from Blackweir Bridge, on the Blackweir Woods/North Road side at 09:45 for a 10:00 start (look out for our purple 4×4 and trailer).  We’ll be there until about 13:00, but you need only stay as long as you want!

All ages and abilities welcome! There will be something for everyone to do, but children must be accompanied.

All tools and equipment — gloves, litter-pickers, bags, hoops,
safety glasses, etc — will be provided. (But if you have your own litter picking equipment, please bring it along. We sometimes get so many volunteers now that we do risk running out of things!)

Please wear wellies, boots or stout shoes, and suitable ‘working’ clothing.

You might also want to bring waterproofs in case of wet weather.

Come along and Make A DIFFerence!

Parking: Various places — eg, Pontcanna Fields car park, Fields Park Rd, CF11 9HY; Turning Head car park, Cathedral Rd, CF11 9PQ; Llandaff Fields Car Park (CF11 9JQ).

All are about 10-15 mins walk away and are free for 2 hrs (you must get & display a free ticket) or £1 for 3 hrs.
