Someone built a beach in a Cardiff suburb and this is the result

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.
