Get involved for Wales

Keep Wales Tidy for blog

The data is now in from September’s ‘Be Tidy’ campaign. This saw at least 6,000 volunteers (2,500 of which were new volunteers) involved in 750 clean up events across Wales. Over 4,000 bags of rubbish were removed from the environment with the help of 18,000 hours of volunteer time.

Friends of Saron were very pleased to have been able to play  a part in this when our 16 volunteers spent a whole day on cleaning up the Chapel street to Cardiff Road footpath. We are very proud to have made a real difference to our local environment and of the appreciative reaction we have received from the community.

Why not ‘do your bit’ by turning up at the our next Volunteer Day at Saron Graveyard, Chapel Street, Troedyrhiw from 10.00 am on Saturday 5th December?


About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
