Tools Repair Evening

We are holding a tools repair evening at Forest Farm Nature Reserve on Tuesday 8th October
We welcome anyone who is interested in learning how to re-handle billhooks/axes and repairing other broken tools. Rob Bronsdon and Ian Gibblet will be on hand to show volunteers how it’s done. We’ll spend an evening fixing up broken tools, painting them nice colours and drinking tea.
No need to book – Just turn up outside the warden centre at 6:30pm!⚒

Kenfig Nature Reserve

Join CCV on Sunday 6th October on a beautiful site on the sand dunes. We’ll be clearing out a pond near their bird hide. Grab the waders and kromes.
Don’t know what a krome is? Come along and find out! We can provide waders/wellies if needed!

Newport Wetlands

ATTENTION‼️ There has been a change of plan for this Sunday’s task! Join CCV Sunday 15th September to help clear Ragwort at the RSPB Newport Wetlands alongside Natural Resources Wales!
The reason for work that we did is that the grasslands are maintained by Natural Resources Wales as wild meadows for the benefit of birds and insects. To best maintain those meadows they need to be cut yearly, for the benefit of the grasses and to remove larger shrub species. If the silage cut from this site is contaminated with ragwort it becomes difficult/impossible for NRW to dispose of. By hand-pulling the ragwort at this time of year, we can be sure the silage cut from the wetlands is acceptable for use with livestock.

NOTE! Do phone the leader or email in advance so we can make sure there’s enough space. Steve Edwards will be leading the task.
