HM The Queen
The Chairman of the Council expresses the Council's deep sympathy at the loss of HM The Queen, on behalf of the people of Radyr & Morganstown.
She was the longest serving monarch our country has ever had and the admiration for the way she carried out her role is unparalleled. Our thoughts are with her family and all who mourn her.
The Council has opened a book of condolence to allow Members and the public to pay their tributes to HM The Queen.
The book is available at Old Church Rooms each morning this week (12 September 2022).
The Royal website also includes the facility to express condolences on-line https://www.royal.uk/. A selection of these messages will be passed onto members of the Royal Family and may be held in the Royal Archives for posterity

Cleaning our river
On Saturday 23 April the Cardiff Rivers Group will be at Radyr Weir, in a joint event with Radyr & Morganstown Litter Pickers. They will meet at 9.45am.
They will be removing rubbish from the banks of the Taff upstream and downstream of the weir, and doing a general litter-pick of the Taff Trail and Longwood Drive.
If you are concerned about the state of the river (which is often polluted with plastic waste) and its surroundings, you are very welcome to join them to help. You will receive a very warm welcome.
Equipment such as gloves, litter-pickers, bags and hoops will be provided.
You can read more about the event here.
In the meantime our heartfelt thanks go to the Cardiff Rivers Group and Radyr & Morganstown Litter Pickers for the excellent work they do to help keep our community clean and tidy.
