The Cardiff Friday Morning Project dusted off the Easter cobwebs and headed down to Llanedeyrn to clean up part of Brynfedw Woods between Brynfedw and Pennsylvania.
Seven of us spent a couple of hours here altogether and pulled out 17 bags of rubbish and 7 bags of recycling. We also pulled out a couple of doors, a large part, in lots of pieces, of someone's kitchen, a foam mattress, a mass of car and motorbike parts, several non-motorised scooters, a crutch, road and gas safety barriers, bits of televisions, unidentified metal and wooden parts and a very retro looking rollerskate (see slideshow).
It was easy to note the plonk of choice in these woods is White Storm where Sue found 29 of these vintage cider receptacles in one al fresco location.
Dave King commented "We could see as we pulled the rubbish from the streams the flow rate of the then stagnant water was increasing nicely"
Chris from Keep Wales Tidy Added "It is nice feeling to come into these neglected and misused woodlands to make a difference and help to return them back to the majority of local residents to enjoy and of course for nature"
These woods were recommended to us to tackle by PCSOs Hilditch and Hellings.
