March 2013 - Brynithel Battle the Brash!
Volunteers from Brynithel Activity Group, Enviro-Tools, Communities First and The Tri-County Play Association set to work clearing some rampant Pyracantha, Willow and general scrub from the borders of the Brynithel Community Park. The Brynithel Activity Group has plans to sow the newly cleared areas with wildflower seed once the earth has been turned. Anti-social activities aren't uncommon in the park, so the group wished to open lines of sight through the green space to make it less desirable to the undesirable. 16 volunteers put in 96 volunteer hours and collected approximately 20 bags of rubbish. - (17 Photos)
