We were runners up in the Biodiversity category of the all-Wales Keep Wales Tidy awards. This is the second year we have been shortlisted and we shall enter a different project again next year in the hope that we make it to the top spot. Thank you to everyone who voted for us at Tescos. Again we did not make it to first place but the substantial grant involved will enable us to make significant progress on our wildlife initiatives down at Goldsland Farm. We have had two school visits during December. The first involved Year 11s from Michaelston College who really got stuck in to the Community Orchard, spreading compost, planting a cherry tree and taking cuttings of Guelder Rose. A number of them expressed a wish to return and we shall be delighted to have them. Younger children from Wenvoe Primary School also had a short walk, gathering holly, ivy and other bits for decorations and hopefully learning something along the way.
