CATCH UP: A very busy few weeks for GPG – Picnic in the Park went really well and plans are well ahead for the Local Food Festival on 17th July in the Kymin. Help is needed both now and on the day – if you have any spare time, please get in touch (the small but enthusiastic group currently involved would welcome you with open arms!).

Plans for the Penarth Harvest and Apple Day towards the end of October are also beginning to take shape… if you are interested in anything to do with celebrating the joy of apples (& other fruit), get in touch with Anthony at or phone: 07810 334762.

We are now on facebook – just type Gwyrddio Penarth Greening. Please spread the word – comments and ideas on all aspects of our work really help..
