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.

November Workday

On a mild and sunny workday the volunteers met at Heol Esgyn Bridge to tackle the drainage channels in the paths through Woods Covert and also to cut back the vegetation on the path beside the stream. 

The next work day is on 16 December meeting at the Old Reservoir Car Park (off Rhydypenau Rd, just above no 127)
We will be tidying up our newly coppiced hedge and tackling the paths. Mulled wine and mince pies will be there to cheer us up!    Please come and join us for the last workday of 2018!

October Workday

It was cold but fine when the 8 volunteers met last Sunday.  Some vegetation was cut back along the paths and stone dust was laid in front of the three noticeboards beside Rhydypenau Bridge.  Lets hope this keeps the weeds away.....

We would really welcome some more strong volunteers please!
