29.01.11 Bute Park Blackweir "I Will for Wales"

Saturday's big event saw 90 volunteers from the Latter Day Saints Church and 5 volunteers from the nearby Western Avenue McDonalds being expertly shepherded by 10 volunteers from the Cardiff Rivers Group and Keep Wales Tidy to help clean the areas in and around the banks off the River Taff at Blackweir.

With scenes reminicent, but albeit nearly 20 degrees celcius cooler, to the Great Taff Tidy from last September, this army of plucky volunteers pulled out 80 bags of rubbish and about 1/2 a tonne of various items including 4 shopping trolleys, plastic parts and crates, insulated cables, metal piping, car radio footballs, scrap metal and most memorably a bath.

Here is a slideshow of the photos...
