CFMEP headed over to Green Bay Road in Splott to help the Greenbay Pickers clear another section of the greenspace behind their houses. We have tackled this a couple of times with local residents (Green Bay Pickers) with help from Splott C1st and myself (flic.kr/s/aHsjy7pVda).
View Fri 19.02.12 CFMEP blitz with the Greenbay Pickers. in a larger mapThe guys worked unbelievably hard when faced with a breathtaking volume of litter and blatant fly tipping. I was extremely proud of what these guys do week in and out, giving up their time, often in terrible conditions in areas miles away from where they live.

On the tipperTowards the end, 11 local children, litterpicked a corner of the street collecting over 190 pieces of litter and filling 2 bags on their own.
We've worked hard to make a sustainable difference behind Greenbay Road and I reckon this extra litterpick with the nest box sessions can significantly add to the great work undertaken here.
