Welsh Veterans get some Green Headspace at Cardiff allotments

Welsh veterans in Cardiff will soon be able to get some Green Headspace at a new community gardening project for ex-servicemen and women, based at an allotment site in Grangetown.

The Welsh Veterans Partnership has been working with Cardiff Council to bring uncultivated allotment land at Leckwith Droves back in to use, as an accessible growing project that will support and enable veterans and their families to integrate with the local allotment community through growing fruit and vegetables.

Thirty-six tonnes of rubble have already been cleared from the site and more than 2000 sandbags filled as part of work to create the accessible raised beds necessary to make the project fully accessible for disabled veterans.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Peter Bradbury, said: "Our ex-servicemen and women deserve all the help and assistance they can get, and this project promises to offer that in spades. Allotments offer an opportunity, not just for locally-grown food, but also for improving the health, wellbeing and skills of our communities, and I'm delighted that we've been able to help make this innovative community project a reality."

Dave Price from the Welsh Veterans Partnership, said: "The project's really gathering pace now, and once all the poly-tunnels are in place it's going to be a really important space for our veterans. Isolation can be a big issue, so getting outdoors, mixing with the allotment community, learning new skills, whether that's cultivating crops or bee-keeping, it's going to be a fantastic opportunity."

£40,000 funding towards new kennels for Cardiff's dogs

Dogs looked after at Cardiff Dogs Home are £40,000 closer to new kennels, following the award of two grants, applied for in partnership with local charity The Rescue Hotel.

A £10,000 grant from the Kennel Club Charitable Trust has been successfully secured, in addition to a £30,000 grant from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London.

Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Michael Michael, said: "Together, these two grants represent a huge boost to plans to refurbish the Dogs Home so we can provide the dogs who find themselves in our care the kind of comfortable, stress-free surroundings that will allow them to thrive until we can find them a permanent home.

"With 64 dogs coming into the Home last month alone, the fundraising efforts of Sam Warburton and everyone at the Rescue Hotel are needed as much as ever, and we're grateful to everyone who has generously donated so far."
