Important Information — Please Read!
Our first priority is the safety of all volunteers who attend an event, so you will notice some changes to the way they will be run for the foreseeable future.
All participants must book a free place using the ‘RSVP’ section further down this page (look for a green ‘CONFIRM RSVP’ button). You will get a ticket by email — please bring a copy of it with you (eg, printed or on your phone). If you do not have a booking, you won’t be allowed to take part in the event.
By booking a place, you and anyone you book for agree to follow CRG’s health and safety guidelines (which include everything on this page), and to follow Welsh Government’s 2m social distancing guidelines and all other restrictions that may be in force at the time the event takes place. (See Welsh Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) information.)
If you book a place, please turn up, or you’ll be depriving another volunteer of the chance. If you or anyone you book for, need to cancel your booking, please let us know (just reply to the ticket email you received when you booked or use our ‘contact’ form).
Please DO NOT attend the event if you:
- Feel unwell in any way on the day
- Are in a period of self-isolation
- Have developed any of the following symptoms in the previous seven days:
- A high temperature
- A new, continuous cough
- Loss of, or change to, your sense of taste and/or smell
You MUST notify CRG if any of the following arise in the 14 days following an event that you have attended:
- you receive a positive test for COVID-19
- you develop any of the symptoms listed above
- you have to go into a period of self-isolation because either you or members of your household have developed symptoms and/or had a positive test for COVID-19
Booking details will be retained for 21 days after the event, in case we need to contact people about any suspected Covid-19 infection.
A full risk assessment has been completed, and a full health and safety briefing will take place before the event starts.
All equipment, bags, etc, will be provided by CRG. Hand sanitizer will be available and all equipment will be sanitized before and after use. If you have your own equipment — gloves, litter-picker, hoop, etc — please bring them! Gloves will be available, which you will keep afterwards, so they won’t get used by anyone else.
Thanks for reading the above — it’s important.
On the afternoon of Friday 18th September, we’re running our first post-lockdown event at Dr Who Beach, at the end of Porth Teigr Way, in Cardiff Bay.
The event is a partnership between CRG, the Marine Conservation Society, Cardiff Council and Cardiff Harbour Authority.
In addition, the First Minister, Mark Drakeford, will be in attendance from 2pm-2:30pm.
The last time we were at Dr Who Beach was 22nd December 2019, so it’s understandably in an pretty bad way.
The focus of this event will be to retrieve as much recycling as possible.
Suitable footwear — strong boots or wellingtons — is essential. If you’re unsteady on your feet, please give this event a miss, as the ground is very uneven.
Off-road parking will be available.
NB. Given the current Covid-19 situation, please bear in mind that it may be necessary to revise or cancel this event at the last moment. Thanks for your understanding!
