Some readers will know that the Taff Trail was damaged during the recent floods, with part of the path swept away.
These pictures show how things stand today.
We will ask Cardiff Council when the path is likely to be repaired - and let you know what they say.
In the meantime, the fence across the path refers to a diversion - but there are no signs showing the route of the diversion. That isn't helpful!
The forthcoming period of self-isolation, along with the UK Government's request for all of us to avoid unnecessary social contact, is likely to place immense pressure on our local businesses.
We love our cafes, restaurants, bars and shops - and we want to keep them!
So please try to give them as much of your custom as possible.
Shop locally. And order take-away food. Even the Radyr Tap does take-away beer!
If you run a local business, let us know what you can offer at this difficult time - and we can post the details on our website and via local social media. You can contact us here.

We're a great community - let's help each other!
On Sunday, 15 March, members of the Community Council held an urgent meeting with other interested parties to discuss our response to the Coronavirus crisis.
Clearly, there is a limit to what a community council can do, but we want to do what we can.
As a first step, we decided to publish postcards to help people look after their neighbours if they're self-isolating. This, of course, was inspired by Becky Wass, who launched this initiative in her home town of Falmouth. You can read her story here.
We will print our Radyr and Morganstown postcards as quickly as we can - and keep you updated via this website and local social media.
We will let you know where you can pick up a supply of our cards, to distribute to your neighbours. We want to keep this very local - so we will encourage people to take no more than around 20 cards - and post them to people who live nearby. In this way, those who are self-isolating can be confident that they will be dealing with people they can trust.
A short while later, we will set up a system to enable those who haven't received a card to let us know. We can then try to find volunteers in your area.
In the meantime, the postcard is as shown below (click on the picture to see a full-size image).
If you want to crack on with this, you can right-click the following links to download the card, which you can print out and cut with scissors:
We hope this little postcard will help put people in touch - and help ensure that anyone who has to self-isolate can get the help they need.
Good luck everyone - and many thanks to those who volunteer!
NB: Collecting prescriptions for someone else? Here's how.
Due to the coronavirus crisis we have decided to cancel our elderly lunch club, for the foreseeable future.
We will miss our lunch club members. We enjoy their company, but we're sure they will understand why we think it best to cancel.
Hashumati Patel, our lunch club organiser, will be in touch with all of our members, volunteer drivers and the golf club, to explain the situation.
We will keep an eye on events - and look to restart the lunches when it is safe to do so.
Stay safe, everyone!
This just in from Plasdwr (following our story about the next phase of roadworks, here):
Unprecedented rainfall during February and March has caused a short delay to the road resurfacing works along Llantrisant Road and Heol Isaf, which can only be successfully completed during dry weather.
The necessary traffic management for the completion of the new, four-way signalised junction in place of the existing Heol Isaf roundabout can only be put in place once the resurfacing work on Heol Isaf is complete, so the start date for this section of work has changed.
Weather-dependant, this traffic management is expected to be in place towards the end of next week commencing 16 March. Exact dates will be communicated here, and on our Twitter channel @plasdwr, once confirmed.
This change is not expected to impact the overall finish time for the junction works, which are still due for completion in the summer.
*Please note all timescales are subject to change.
And, of course, as we face the Coronavirus crisis, we may see more delays. We'll keep you posted.
Readers may know that the Royal Mail's depot at Gwaelod-y-Garth was closed, following the recent floods. Services have been moved to Llanishen - which means that Radyr and Morganstown residents face a long drive across North Cardiff to retrieve undelivered parcels, etc.
Rumours circulated that the move may be permanent - and that the Gwaelod depot would be closed for ever.
Our Facebook message about this was picked up by BBC journalist Anwen Pritchard-Rowlands, who managed to speak with the Royal Mail (which is quite an achievement, given that the Royal Mail's website is devoid of any contact details).
This is the response she received from a Royal Mail Spokesperson:
“As a result of severe flooding at Cardiff North West Delivery Office, we are temporarily working from Cardiff North Delivery Office (Cheviot Close, Parc ty Glas Cardiff, CF14 5XW). We are in the process of cleaning the impacted site, and we are assessing any damaged caused. We are working hard to ensure there will be no impact on our services to customers during this time. The Cardiff North West Delivery Office delivery office is important to our business and there are no current plans to close it.”
This is good news - and our thanks go to Anwen for her work on this story.
