Merthyr Mawr

Join CCV Sunday 2nd June for Himalayan Balsam clearance in Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes for Natural Resources Wales. This is at a beautiful site which is home to Europe’s second-largest sand dune. Extremely satisfying work! Your chance to experience the wonderful crunch of Himalayan Balsam stems between your fingers and save the stream at Merthyr Mawr from the pink invasion.
