On 16 February we carried a story about flooding in parts of Radyr, which included the cricket club. Up to a five foot depth of water flooded onto the outfield - which caused damage to the playing facilities. The club lost some fences - and the net facility and its covers were damaged. Very fortunately, the pavilion and its extension works suffered minimal loss.
Since the flood, the cricket-club clean-up has been underway.
On Saturday, 21 February, over thirty members of the club, of all ages, helped to start clearing the huge amount of damage caused by Storm Dennis. The process will probably continue, every Saturday morning from 9.00am, until the season starts in the first week in May.
To this end, we received the following message from Christopher Hitchings, the club's chairman:
"Whether you are a member of the club, or just a Radyr or Morgantown resident, your presence on any Saturday, just for a few hours would be most welcome.”
So here's an opportunity for us to pull together as a community - and help to restore our magnificent cricket club after the recent flooding.
Where is the club?
It's just under the railway bridge by Radyr Station, then turn immediately right. The address is Riverside Ground, Station Road, Radyr, Cardiff CF15 8AA.

The pin on the map has been dropped at the end of the lane leading to the club.
