Help from a High School

On 15 May, pupils from the  Llanishen High School Eco Group joined the Friends for a  session of planting and “bracken bashing” in the Nant Fawr area near the Rhydyblewin Farmhouse.
Several large trees and small saplings were planted,  along with some primroses. The group finished their session with a Birthday picnic under the trees!  Thank you for all your hard work!

A spring Stroll through the Nant Fawr woods

We had a pleasant walk on Sunday 5 May through the area.  Stephen Howe, our knowledgeable naturalist, explained features relating to the land, flora and fauna as we made our way through the various woods and meadows. We were able to help the children with the rubbings on an explorer trail
and we learnt more about the history of the site and possible future developments.
