Skateramp and shelter in Bishopston
This could fit in with the ideas for places for older children and young people to hang out. The closest skate park is down in Blackpill since the Pennard one was removed, this isn't ideal for kids who want to skate. It would need to be away from immediate houses and have rubbish provision but would give a traffic free space for kids using both skateboards, bikes and scooters to be outside. It's great practice for our young (and older!) surfing community to practice on skateboards when the waves are small. A shelter would mean young people would have somewhere to hang out during wet weather and still make it a viable space for them to use.

We are looking to create an outdoor skateboarding facility for children to meet, socialise, play and have fun in a safe, free-to-use environment. It will benefit the whole community; local children and adults of all ages, gender and race, are able to use the skatepark, using bikes, scooters and skateboards that they already have. It will also give parents peace of mind.

Children are spending more time in-doors, on phones, iPads and Social Media and the mental and physical well-being of children is suffering. They need a fun and engaging outdoor space for activities and to interact with one another and build vital social and interpersonal skills. This will have long term benefits and a positive impact on our community. An alternative for kids who are struggling to identify with team sports, this can give them a sense of belonging.

Get cars off pavements
Why do cars do this?
No thought for pushchair or wheelchair users , and in some cases, no room for pedestrians .
Particularly bad roads are Oldway and Kilfield.

Outdoor Exercise Equipment
There is equipment along the promenade in Swansea and it is really well used. This would give older children and adults access to free-to-use exercise equipment encouraging a more healthy lifestyle.

More clubs and associations for the elderly and infirm
Regular clubs for elderly or infirm people to get together and chat, play games, have demonstrations or presentations to address loneliness and isolation in the village. It would be good if there was transport available to and from these too so all those interested could attend.

A Youth Club Bus
The Eden Bus from The Message Trust would visit your community on one evening a week. The bus is kitted out with three games consoles, 3 Apple Macs, a soft seated area, a nail bar, an area for playing games or doing craft or homework and a sound booth area which is used more for karaoke.

This club is aimed at older youth of Comprehensive school age.

On an evening we will park the bus up for an hour and a half. During this time it will be chance to engage with youngsters, allow them to have time on the bus and we will also be doing a 7 min talk about life things for young people (this will have a Christian message).
