A charity built a man-made beach in a Cardiff suburb over the bank holiday.
Cardiff charity Rumney Forum brought the beach to the community of Rumney on Monday for the second year in a row.
The car park of Rumney Chapel, on the corner of Wentloog Road and Brachdy Road, was transformed into a seaside mini resort thanks to four tonnes of sand, paddling pools and donkey rides, complete with ice cream, candy floss and a barbecue.
Donations going towards charity
Any donations from the event are being put towards the charity’s aims to turn the old branch library into a community space.
The volunteers hope it will become an accessible community space with rentable rooms, a play area, computers and a cafe using food supplied by Fareshare, and a free equipment, toy and book library.
The building has been empty since the library moved to its new home in the Rumney Partnership Hub in September.
Here’s how the beach looked after it was completed…
With a little help from their friends, organisers managed to make the day out a smashing one
And the event was full to the brim
With palm trees, sand and paddling pools to make it like a real beach…
And what beach would be complete without somewhere to sunbathe?
Thankfully, the sun smiled down at Rumney Forum and greeted them with warm and sunny weather
There was something for everyone to enjoy
