December Workday

After a terrible day on the Saturday, the sun came out on the Sunday morning!
Ten of us turned up for the last work day of the year.  We cut back the coppiced hedge beside the car park and also cut back the undergrowth along some of the paths.
We enjoyed mince pies and Kevin's mulled wine as a reward.
Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped us throughout what has been a very busy year.
Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year from the Friends of Nant Fawr!

Temporary Footpath Closure

Welsh Water is currently working in the Meadows. They are bringing a water main back into operational use. The work was to have been completed by this month, but as the pipe is in a worse condition than expected, the work will not now be completed until the end of February 2019.

A temporary footpath was created by Welsh Water, running behind the houses in Black Oak Rd.
It has now been closed by Welsh Water as it is so muddy.In order to walk between the Old Reservoir Car Park (off Rhydypenau Rd) and Rhydyblewin Farmhouse it is now necessary to go via Rhydypenau  Rd and Black Oak Rd. Diversion signs are in place.
