Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Update

Caerphilly CBC has taken the decision and has adopted a consistent approach to ensure social distancing and restricting the potential of any form of gathering within our open spaces, along with other local authorities across Wales, in the interest of public health, and as a consequence the Council has closed children’s play areas, multi-use games areas (MUGAs), skate parks, municipal and country parks for which it is responsible from the 23 March until further notice.

This tough decision follows guidance from UK and Welsh Government to ensure social distancing in order to limit the spread of COVOID-19 Coronavirus and to protect our residents, especially those who are vulnerable. Residents are being urged to co-operate with these closures and not attempt to enter these spaces.

Spaces Available

There are a limited number of Teen Rangers spaces available now. Contact Andy Wilkinson (Environmental Education Ranger) on 01443 815546 or email on


Teen Rangers is a fantastic, adventure-packed wildlife club for young people aged between 11 and 14.  As a member of the club you’ll get up close with wildlife, explore the countryside and carry out practical tasks to help make it a better place.

Using tools, making fires, going on trips, taking part in surveys, learning bush craft skills and exploring at night are just some of things that the group gets up to. It can get quite mucky sometimes!

Best of all it's free, but places are limited so, occasionally, there may be a waiting list.

The group meets monthly on a Sunday afternoon using the Education Centre at Aberbargoed Grasslands as a base.

Please download a Teen Rangers application form and soon you too could be joining in.
