Antisocial behaviour

A warm, sunny Easter brought out many families to join the regular dog walkers in the Nant Fawr area but marked the start of a series of unpleasant incidents. Along with vandalism to property to the north of the reservoirs, mindless destruction of posts and notices (including arson) were reported in the Rhydypenau Park area. Also, groups of older teenagers on bikes have been riding recklessly around the Park area, behaving in an intimidating manner.

If you witness any incidents which you deem to be “antisocial” please report them immediately to the Police on the number 101, and help us to prevent these individuals from spoiling the enjoyment of the many people who value this local amenity. 

Kevin's Walk - "Man's hand in Nature"

The sun was out as an enthusiastic group gathered to hear Kevin describe how the Rhydypenau Woods, and Rhydypenau and Top Meadows, have changed over time. As usual, his talk was informative and entertaining. Many thanks Kevin!

KWT litter picking, Wednesday 19th April

Eleven people, armed with litter pickers and rubbish bags (held open by a very nifty device) met at Rhydypenau library.
 We tackled the Oval area, including the roads around, and the entrance area in to the Nant Fawr next to Cardiff High School. An hour later, a number of bags were collected for disposal!

Conclusions:

  • A large amount of soft fizzy drinks and take away food is consumed in the area
  • There is a need for more (larger) bins
