|Working together with local groups
The Cardiff Area, and Greater Charlestown Sustainable Neighbourhood Groups enjoyed a lovely day with neighbours at their respective National Tree Day events in July. Both groups made valuable contributions by offering promotional assistance, and volunteer hands to help out local community groups.
An enthusiastic team turned up to remove weeds and replant natives at the Cardiff South Wetland Landcare site (image below). Landcare volunteers appreciated the extra turnout and help to prevent the spread of weeds at their site.
And volunteers from the Greater Charlestown Sustainable Neighbourhood Group helped the Pit Pony Park community
to plant and mulch a range of native trees to provide shade and amenity at their local park.
It's great to see Sustainable Neighbourhood groups collaborating with and supporting other community groups in their neighbourhood.
The West Wallsend District Landcare Group (formed in partnership with their local Sustainable Neighbourhood Group) will be holding a Landcare planting day:
Sunday 21 August, 9.30am
Meet in the park at the western end of Elizabeth St, Holmesville.
They'd love your assistance! Visit their facebook page
