Llandaff Weir

Llandaff Rowing Club (Llandaff Weir), Bridge Road
Cardiff , CF5 2PT United Kingdom
+ Google Map

We will be working on the river bank and islands below Llandaff Weir. It's been a couple of years since our last visit, so there should be lots to do. For those who enjoy getting in the water — and river conditions permitting — there will be 'waders-work' below the weir. Other (more sensible) people may prefer to litter-pick the surrounding areas along the river bank. All tools and equipment — gloves, litter-pickers, bags, hoops, safety glasses, etc — will…

On Saturday, 7th September, we'll be returning to Dr Who Beach, in Cardiff Bay. Meet outside the old Dr Who Experience (see map below).

We are postponing this event until a later date, as car parking on a weekday around there is a nightmare. We will try to reschedule it for a weekend, when parking should be easier.

Forest Farm (Reed Clearing)

Sunday, 22 September, 9:45 am12:00 pm

We'll be making our annual visit to the wetland ponds at Forest Farm to help clear the reeds. The main activity will be to help manage the habitat of the ponds. This entails volunteers in waders getting into the water, pulling the reeds out (by their roots if possible), and putting them on the edge of the pond. Volunteers who have sensibly decided to remain on dry land then gather up the reeds and pile them up in an appropriate…

We are returning to the foreshore at Lamby Way, at the mouth of the River Rhymney .

We will be returning to Llanishen Park to continue improving the ponds and woodland. (We were there three times earlier this year, at the end of February/beginning of March, but there's still more to do!) Those with waders please feel free to bring them along, as we will be getting into the water to remove branches and rubbish, and to cut back encroaching willow. There may also be some coppicing to open up the woodland. And there will be a…
