I met up with Amy from Llanrumney Communities First just before Easter and she was keen to set up an environmental group in Llanrumney. We thought that it would be a good idea to have a walkabout and a litterpick in one. The day arrived and Amy and I were joined by two local residents, three from the Play Centre. We walked through Fish Pond Woods enjoying the bluebells within these fantastic woods. There are some magnificent sweet chestnut trees there of some girth. Sadly there was also evidence of illegal chainsaw operators cutting down random healthy trees. Clearly this wasn't part of the management plan for these woods and the Park Rangers have been informed.
We collected 7 bags of litter altogether on this short first meeting. Moreover we are looking forward to set up a regular event around Llanrumney. Here are some photos of the event including the river which looks like it is ready for a clean up.
