Another rewarding day for our volunteers

6 adjusted

A fine but chilly Volunteer Day last Saturday 5th December saw our volunteers work tirelessly until the light began to fail. The work carried out included strimming, hoeing, weeding, levelling, bulb planting, clearing and stacking loose stone and stabilising headstones. Very many thanks are due to Clive, Steve E., Andrew, Steve C., Simon, Eirwen, Mark, Sheila, Phil and Jean.



Disappointingly, in view of the major ‘Be Tidy’ clearup of the footpath that we undertook back in September, it was also necessary to pick up quite a lot of litter, some of which had been dumped recently. Items included beer cans, glass drinks bottles, sweet wrappers, household rubbish, women’s boots, man’s shoe, men’s underwear, blouse, toy boat, a seaside bucket, football and a motor oil container.


Sometimes we despair! But are we downhearted? Certainly not! We will continue to work to make this part of Troedyrhiw the best it can be. Please give us your support in any way that you are able.
