A Walk in the Woods

 Nineteen of us, including some children,  joined Kevin the Ranger for a walk last Sunday.
He showed us many different species of trees in the Woods Covert area and gave interesting information in respect of the folklore and history of all of them. Thanks Kevin, for brightening up a pretty miserable Sunday!

Work Day 20 October

We are hoping that the weather will be kind enough to allow Kevin our Ranger to cut the hay in the meadows this week. If he succeeds, we will hold our hay rake on Sunday.  If not we will meet at the Heol Esgyn Bridge anyway and will concentrate on cutting back undergrowth and clearing drainage channels.
We  will update you all later this week.

Witches, Warlocks and Willow Trees in Nant Fawr

Sunday
13 October 2019
Come and join us on a gentle walk (2km) through the Nant Fawr woods, discovering the ancient folklore surrounding trees.
Meet at the entrance adjacent to Cardiff High School  11.00am  - 12.30pm.



The Washout!

Unsurprisingly the Hay rake scheduled for last Sunday was postponed due to the bad weather. We hope it will take place in October instead.
But there is always a silver lining! We spent our time rescuing fruit trees which had been planted in Woods Covert and the Paddock but which had become quite choked with brambles and so on.
In addition, valuable work was done to clear drainage channels in the area.
Thanks to the 7 volunteers who braved the poor weather!
PS Don't forget The Community Ranger's walk on 13 October
