The War of the Roses - Caerau edition

Wed 28 Jul
Report written by Nathan Swain

A new destination for GGC&V as a group headed out to St Timothy's Church, Caerau. After getting out of hand during the Covid lockdowns the group was there to help return the church garden back to its former glory, creating a pleasant, safe green space that can be enjoyed as a quiet space for the local community.

With little more than moments to catch their breath on arrival the group were handed shears, loppers, rakes and secateurs and set to work trimming down the front hedges and raking around the side of the church.

Nathan was left wondering what he'd done or said, as he was sent off on his own to the left while the rest of the group tackled the right, and chatted, and laughed and had a good catch up. He did however leave with a clear horticultural conscience avoiding the massacre of in bloom roses that was needed to level the hedge.

After an hour the group tucked into some well earned ice lollies and had a catch up about the return of group runs, drawing up a shortlist of suitable pubs for a start/finish location.

Garden tidy up - St Timothy's

Wed 28 Jul 18:45 pm
St Timothy's Church, Heol Pennar, Cardiff, CF5 4NX
Tidying will give a boost to local residents and church users

St Timothy's church garden needs a tidy up after becoming overgrown during lockdown and has suffered at the hands of fly-tippers. Returning the church garden back to its former glory will create a pleasant, safe green space that can be enjoyed as a quiet space for the local community.

Tasks will include:

  1. Cutting back of hedgerows, snipping out any brambles that are intertwined.

  2. Sawing fallen branches so that they can be taken away from the site for disposal at recycling centre.

  3. Cutting back overgrown trees.

There may also be a painting task, dependent on attendees and progress made on the gardens.
