Next Workday 15 December

For our next and final workday of the year, we will meet at the Reservoir Car Park on Sunday 15 December.
Meet at 10.00am until 12 noon. We will cut back undergrowth, tidy the hedge  and install the final and eleventh noticeboard.
We will celebrate our successful and productive year by providing mince pies and mulled wine.

Best wishes to all our readers for Christmas and the New Year!

A Successful Workday

We had a good work day last Sunday! The weather was kind to us and we had a turnout of 18 altogether. We cut back undergrowth, rescuing saplings planted last year, and the stronger members were able to move our mosaic of a heron to a new position.  It had been on our bird viewing platform since it was made by our former Ranger, Cassie, but as the platform is being demolished, we needed to find a new home for it.   Now it rests in front of our noticeboard beside the farmhouse.

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.
