Friends of Saron strongly believe that volunteers from the community can make a positive difference to the environment in our village. That is why our members and other residents of Troedyrhiw have responded to the call from Keep Wales Tidy to ‘roll up our sleeves, get dirty and tackle an untidy ‘hot spot’.
Last Saturday we held a ‘Be Tidy’ event on the poorly maintained footpath which leads past Saron Graveyard and links Chapel Street with Cardiff Road.
As will be seen from what follows all participants did a magnificent job so very many thanks are due to the following:-
Sharon Nikita Karan
Frances Chris Sheila
Mark Steve Y. Steve C.
Simon Andrew David
Tony Howell Gareth
We are also very grateful for the active support of Jake Castle, Local Project Officer, Keep Wales Tidy. His invaluable input leading up to and on the day was much appreciated..
BEFORE THE CLEAN-UP
THE VOLUNTEERS GET ‘STUCK IN’
FLY-TIPPED RUBBISH etc
Although we expected to find rubbish the amount and variety of it surprised and disappointed us. By the end of the day we had left over 30 bags of waste for collection by the Council and were also left with a large amount of woody hedge trimmings etc which we undertook to deal with ourselves.
THE END RESULT
After what, for some of our volunteers, had been 8 hours of ‘hard graft’ this was the very satisfying end result:-
Please let us know what you think of this day’s work.
Perhaps you would like to become a volunteer yourself?
