Nine volunteers, donned their gloves and tooled-up with litter pickers, spades, brushes, loppers and saws and set to the grounds of Hawthorn Junior School.
The event was organised by Llandaff North Residents Association in partnership with Keep Wales Tidy and Cardiff County Council.
Initially, the job looked quite easy, but after we scraped out weeds from cracks, cut down and loppered up buddleia which were set into the many walls, scraped up moss and bagged up plenty of litter including dumped bags of used nappies we were quite knackered. Three hours later, we had ammassed 40 bags of rubbish and green waste.
However, there is still more to do and we will return at some point in April (TBA) to properly finish off the last few parts.
