Floods in Nant Fawr meadows

Many of you will have noticed the flooding problems which have occurred in our meadows following the recent heavy rainfall. We are pleased to learn that, following  discussions between Welsh Water and our Community Ranger, Welsh Water have agreed to pump the water from the Dip into Llanishen Reservoir. Cardiff Council will then install an open grated manhole to allow the water to drain from the area.
The flooded path beside the Boggy Meadow is more difficult to resolve, but will hopefully start to drain away soon once we have some drier weather.

We made it!

In between the AWFUL weather last week, Kevin the Ranger managed to cut the grass and on Sunday, in the sunshine, 17 of us were able to rake the grass . Hopefully this will facilitate the growth of more wildflowers next year.
Thanks you to those who resisted the temptation of the Rugby World Cup and supported US!.  We hope the cider and Welsh cakes helped to make it worthwhile.
