Litter Pick and Rockpool Ramble a huge success!

 

Transition Llantwit were in action again this weekend and held a very successful litter pick and rockpool ramble on Saturday 21st April.

Regardless of the inclement weather, around a dozen people turned up for the morning litter pick of which we found all sorts of various wierd and wonderful items including a lorry tyre, a car tyre, 2 golf balls and a part of a sofa!

Following the litter pick we moved the lorry tyre to our Miri Mieri community garden where it will be used as a veg bed in the coming months.

Following lunch at

the beach cafe, Helen from Glamorgan Heritage Coast joined us for a rockpool ramble! By now the rain was about to lash down but around 2 dozen people, young and old alike, joined in with enthusiasm and a determination to find something interesting!

Helen was on hand to offer her knowledge on what we found which included one edible crab, one shore crab, and other species of crab. In addition to this we found a butterfish!

We would like to offer a big thanks to Helen for attending our event, and also to all those who came rain or shine to both events. We
hope to organise similiar events over the coming summer!

We have added all the photos we took of the event to our Transition Llantwit Facebook group!
