Coronavirus is still here and it’s going to need a big team effort for us to live alongside it safely. This hasn’t been an easy time for anyone and coronavirus has really changed our lives. We’ve all got a reason to keep doing our bit to stop the spread of coronavirus so we can get life going again. We all have a part to play, by thinking every day about what we should do, rather than what we can do, to protect lives, livelihoods and our ways of living. More information:

Mae’r coronafeirws yn dal i fod yma, a bydd angen i ni weithio gyda’n gilydd er mwyn gallu byw ochr yn ochr â’r feirws hwn yn ddiogel. Mae hwn wedi bod yn gyfnod anodd i bawb, ac mae’r coronafeirws wedi newid ein bywydau. Mae gan bob un ohonom ran i’w chwarae, drwy feddwl bob dydd am beth y dylem ei wneud, yn hytrach na beth y gallwn ei wneud, i ddiogelu bywydau, bywoliaethau a’n ffordd o fyw. Mwy o wybodaeth ar:

Keep Wales Safe Campaign

12th  April will mark the latest milestone in changes to guidance across Wales

  • Full return to schools and colleges
  • Universities can reopen
  • All shops can reopen
  • Close contact services resume
  • Travel in and out of Wales permitted

We are excited to announce the launch of Caru Cymru – our biggest ever initiative
to eradicate litter and waste.

Caru Cymru (a Welsh phrase meaning ‘Love Wales’) aims to inspire everyone to take action
and care for the environment.

Our new movement will not just focus on cleaning up, it will address stopping litter from happening in the first place.

What will be happening?

Keep Wales Tidy will be working in partnership with every local authority in Wales and Cardiff University’s behaviour change team. Together, we will be trialling a range of new and innovative solutions to tackle roadside, fast-food and marine related litter, improve air quality and eliminate single use plastic.

Keep Wales Tidy project officers will be working closely with local authorities to develop ‘action plans’ that target specific issues and hotspots. They will also continue to support communities to take action by:

  • Running awareness and behaviour change campaigns to prevent further issues.
  • Helping to form new community groups.
  • Working with the council to identify and establish new litter picking hubs.
  • Supporting new and existing Litter Champions.

How can you get involved?

  • Share what you’re doing to look after your Green Flag site and your local environment using #CaruCymru on social media.
  • Act now to cut single-use plastic! Make the switch from disposable to reusable.

Register for Spring Clean Cymru (28 May – 13 June) and join our million mile mission

By everybody working together to create a clean and safe environment, we can build stronger, healthier communities and make a positive difference to our planet.

Mae Cadwch Gymru’n Daclus yn falch o gyhoeddi achlysur lansio Caru Cymru – ei fenter fwyaf erioed i ddileu sbwriel a gwastraff.

Nod Caru Cymru yw ysbrydoli pawb i weithredu a gofalu am yr amgylchedd.

Bydd ein mudiad newydd yn canolbwyntio ar lanhau, ond bydd hefyd yn mynd i’r afael ag atal sbwriel rhag digwydd yn y lle cyntaf.

Beth fydd yn digwydd?

Bydd Cadwch Gymru’n Daclus yn gweithio mewn partneriaeth â phob awdurdod lleol yng Nghymru a thîm newid ymddygiad Prifysgol Caerdydd. Gyda’n gilydd, byddwn yn rhoi ystod o atebion newydd ac arloesol ar brawf i fynd i’r afael â sbwriel ar ochr y ffordd, sbwriel bwyd brys ac yn ymwneud â’r môr, gwella ansawdd aer a dileu plastig untro.

Bydd swyddogion prosiect Cadwch Gymru’n Daclus yn gweithio’n agos gydag awdurdodau lleol i ddatblygu ‘cynlluniau gweithredu’ sydd yn targedu materion penodol ac ardaloedd lle mae problemau. Byddant hefyd yn parhau i gefnogi cymunedau i weithredu trwy:

  • Gynnal ymgyrchoedd ymwybyddiaeth a newid ymddygiad i atal problemau pellach.
  • Helpu i ffurfio grwpiau cymunedol newydd.
  • Gweithio gyda’r cyngor i nodi a sefydlu hybiau codi sbwriel newydd.
  • Cefnogi Arwyr Sbwriel newydd a phresennol.

Y weledigaeth ar gyfer Caru Cymru yw y bydd yn dod yn naturiol i bobl wneud y peth iawn, o fynd â’u sbwriel gartref a glanhau ar ôl eu ci, i ailgylchu ‘wrth fynd’, ailddefnyddio ac atgyweirio.

Sut gallwch chi gymryd rhan?

  • Rhannwch yr hyn yr ydych yn ei wneud i ofalu am eich safle Baner Werdd a’ch amgylchedd lleol gan ddefnyddio #CaruCymru ar y cyfryngau cymdeithasol.
  • Gweithredwch nawr i leihau plastig untro! Newidiwch o untro i amldro.

Cofrestrwch ar gyfer Gwanwyn Glân Cymru (28 Mai – 13 Mehefin) ac ymunwch â’n menter miliwn o filltiroedd

Trwy gydweithio i greu amgylchedd glân a diogel, gallwn greu cymunedau cryfach, iachach a gwneud gwahaniaeth cadarnhaol i’n planed.

Cardiff Council are changing the waste and recycling collection days to provide a better service that’s
more efficient and cost effective in the long term.

From Monday 22nd February you may have a change to the day, week or time your collections take place.

Cardiff Council’s annual Budget Consultation 2021/22. 

The consultation has already launched and closes on  10th February.

The results of the survey are key in the planning and delivery of council and partner services.  We therefore want to ensure that our population
 and service users are as well represented as possible. 

Hi Tom,

Many thanks for your perseverance! We were eventually able to build and plant the Butterfly Garden and very impressive it looks too! The plants and saplings are very strong and look good in the raised planter and trellis provided.

Ask Cardiff is an annual survey undertaken by Cardiff Council. The survey gives people living and working in Cardiff and those visiting the city the chance to share their experiences of public services: the good experiences and where things could be improved.

Arrangements for Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday 8th November 2020 falls within the 'firebreak lockdown', in light of COVID-19 regulations and with the safety of residents in mind it has now been necessary to scale down Old St Mellons Community Council 2020 Remembrance Sunday Commemorations.

There will be no church service and no parade, but a brief service will be held at the War Memorial on Newport Road at 12 midday. The service will be led by Rev. Andy Christofides of St. Mellons Baptist Chapel.

We are asking that only those who would normally lay wreaths should attend to minimise risk to the public.

We have taken advice from South Wales Police and have consulted Welsh Government Guidelines on this matter.

Construction of 16 new homes to boost the city's supply of affordable housing is about to get underway.

Mae'r gwaith o adeiladu 16 o gartrefi newydd i gynyddu cyflenwad y ddinas o dai fforddiadwy ar fin dechrau.

Cardiff Council is set to be one of the first local authorities in the UK to purchase an electric tractor, following a successful trial at Forest Farm Nature Reserve.

Bydd Cyngor Caerdydd yn un o'r awdurdodau lleol cyntaf yn y DU i brynu tractor trydanol, yn dilyn treial llwyddiannus yng Ngwarchodfa Natur Fferm y Fforest.

A Cardiff-based actor, more used to treading the boards and the TV lights than a career in social care, is championing his new role as a domiciliary care worker.

Mae actor o Gaerdydd, sy'n fwy cyfarwydd â throedio'r byrddau ac o dan y goleuadau teledu nag â gyrfa ym maes gofal cymdeithasol, yn hyrwyddo ei rôl newydd fel gweithiwr gofal cartref.
