> Digital Democracy can be a great way of ensuring the voices of all children and young people in a school are heard. Sue Lyle and Peter Anderson report on how the digital platform, VocalEyes can be used to support Pupil Voice and lead to serious action for change in schools and community.
This is such a positive project with loads of ideas such as no-dig food growing and involving communities from Swansea.
They have plans to create 7 areas of hazel coppice over the next 7 years. Coppiced wood is invaluable for building materials and for converting into bio-char to add to the soil. (The project is inspired by Ed Revill's growing project on South Gower and his biochar pioneering work).
Tuesdays have now been set as a weekly workday. It would be great to have a large group of people working together and sharing food and conversation too. Car parking available across the road at Bishopston Community Centre or the number 14 bus from Swansea bus station takes you right there.
If you want to get involved please contact Bob and Jules on 07964 530436 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Val on 07533 711 506. Also if you know of any community groups that may be interested in participating, contact Jules and Bob. Volunteer expenses are provided plus unlimited cups of tea and coffee with biscuits!

Mae pwll padlo Parc Howard ar agor heddiw.
Each pool will have an on-duty attendant in place throughout hours of operation. These staff members provide an attendant presence to fill and empty the facility and monitor use of the pool. Please note, children must not be left unattended at the pools and remain the responsibility of parents / guardians at all times. For your children's comfort we recommend the wearing of suitable water play footwear.
Bydd gan bob pwll gynorthwyydd ar ddyletswydd yn ystod yr oriau gweithredu. Mae'r aelodau staff hyn yn darparu presenoldeb cynorthwyol i lenwi a gwagio'r cyfleuster a monitro'r defnydd o'r pwll. Sylwer, mae plant yn parhau i fod yn gyfrifoldeb rhieni / gwarcheidwaid trwy'r amser ac ni ddylai plant gael eu gadael i fynychu'r pyllau ar eu hunain. Er cysur eich plant, rydym yn argymell gwisgo esgidiau chwarae dŵr addas.
