Getting rid of volunteer litterpicked rubbish and almost finished the hedge in Old St. Mellons

We do a phenominal number of litterpicks with volunteer groups across Cardiff. We are often asked what happens after the hard work is done. For the litter pick we did at Hawthorn Junior School a month ago, the litter was taken away today by Peter and his colleague from Street Cleansing.

As it was behind locked gates, it was removed less urgently. However, it was very pleasing to see that there was no extra rubbish dumped on this site since our clean up.

Earlier in the day, I went down to the hedge that volunteers from the St. Mellons over 50's club had been working on with me on and off over the last month. Sue was ill, so it was left to Rose and I to lay the last couple of trees, tuck all the branches in and then coursely weave in the binders or hetherings. The last remaining task will be to level off the binders and cut the stakes to height. The hedge looks pretty good and was made using only materials that was growing on the hedge before we started. Some of the older stools are also in a much better condition now than what they were before we started. All very positive.
