That means lots of new bikes will be appearing soon, starting with docking stations along the bay linking the two university campuses with the city centre. The amount raised was way above the goal, £100,210 (£53,178 target) which is brilliant news because...
"To win the competition we need[ed] to raise more than our target. 50% of any funds raised over and above the target will be used to make further capital investments – more bikes and docking stations – which could include more locations. The other 50% will pay for the additional running costs that will come as a result of the extra investment."
This is brilliant news for Swansea, well done Abertawe! We're looking forward to seeing more people out and about on the bikes, experiencing the joys and freedom of cycling!
However, due to limited space, these are no full size pool tables, so even though a suggestion for a full size pool table was given on VocalEyes, and initially considered, it was conclusively reached that there is not enough room for a full size pool table without the removal of some of the existing tables.
This would have resulted in less tables available for play, a longer waiting time etc.
So we have decided ' if it isn't broken, don't fix it!', and will leave the area as it is!
All if these activities have been organised on your lazy Wednesday afternoon as a nice break from busy stressful college life and to keep you motivated and invigorated.
Also, for those of you re- sitting a GCSE or two, there are classes to help you get at the top of your game and ready to pass and do yourselves proud!
Use VocalEyes to let the WOW team know if there are any other activities you would like brought to life!
After a change in legislation, all smokers must now smoke outside, away from public buildings.
the problem arises when nature takes it's course and hurls down rain for hours on end,... Where are the smokers to go?
Unfortunately, after having priced up the smoking/ bus shelters to arrive at a potential cost of £80,000 ; the college has not found it feasible to provide these shelters for the students.
Though many of you were understandably unhappy with this outcomes, you were all very understanding once the financial situation was explained to you.
A big thank you for your maturity!
The college got straight onto their suppliers when female engineering students pointed out their boots were too big! Here's the suitably booted students putting their best foot forward. One small step for a student, one giant leap for womankind.
