Farewell to Rhian

Rhian Jones has been one of our most active and creative volunteers for the past six years
She has amongst other things been our liaison officer with the local schools, which included planning work activities for the children.  She also organized wildlife surveys, managed our website, wrote our newsletters, applied for grants for plants and tools and acted as our publicity officer.  This huge input was recognized in 2014 when she was voted the “Volunteer of the Year” award by the Cardiff Parks Department.  Here is a picture of her receiving that award.

Sadly, Rhian is moving home and has decided with other interests beckoning that it is time to move on.  She will be greatly missed.

The Friends of Nant Fawr are pleased to announce that for the second year running we have been awarded  the Green Flag Community Award, “in recognition of its excellent facilities and commitment to delivering great quality green spaces”. 

Many thanks to our Ranger, Kevin Date and the many volunteers of all ages, who have helped to make this happen.

Thank you also to Keep Wales Tidy for their help and advice.

We are making good progress with the installation of the noticeboards across the Nant Fawr site (courtesy of the Heritage Lottery Fund)
