Let's ban expanded polystyrene fast food and drinks packaging in Wales

This stuff is a direct threat to the environment, as I'm sure most readers of this blog will know. Tiny bits of plastic, including from this source are  polluting every water body on the planet, and being ingetsed by all marine and freshwater animals and any birds that feed on them.

It's completely unnecessary, there are alternatives available - like cardboard, bio-degradable starches and so on.

'Friends of Barry Beaches' have a petition on the National Assembly's web site: You do NOT have to live in Wales to sign it.

Please sign and pass on the word to friends via email and social media.

Nest boxes

As part of National Nest Box Week, GBC had a nest box making session this morning using timber kindly donated by Topstak Chimneys & Fireplaces of Cowbridge . Myself, Alan Rosney, Wayne Morris, Marlay John, and Daniel & Gethin Jenkins-Jones manned the workshop at KNNR and here's just a few of the 20 or so we made. These will be put to good use at locations yet to be decided.
