Raking the marshy triangle and orchard
After the summer flowers have set seed, we cut back the marshy triangle and the orchard to ensure a good show of flowers next year.

Help us to rake and remove the hay cut.

Tools and training are provided for all volunteer events. 
Please wear suitable clothing and footwear. 
All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

We meet at Cedars Tea Rooms at 10 and usually finish at 2pm.  Bring a packed lunch, or you can purchase something from Cedars.

For more information, call the rangers office and speak to Dan or Keith on 01656 725155 or email: bryngarwpark@bridgend.gov.uk

Environment Wales Grant
Thank you to everyone that wrote a letter of support, we’ve had our grant awarded and are in the process of spending the £6000 on new equipment & training to tackle the balsam & knotweed at the park.

Development Officer Alison Colebrook visited us yesterday and is very impressed with the park and the work we’re doing to help the Rangers. 

Dan was excited to find exuvia (Dragonfly larvae case) at the pond in the Oriental Garden.

Hopefully we’ll be able to apply for further money from EW and other funding bodies, as long as we can continue as a constituted group.

Look forward to seeing you on Saturday,

Leigh

on behalf of the Bryngarw Park Volunteer Group
