Pennard Community Council have been awarded funding by the Rural Development Partnership to carry out a feasibility study into a Community Hub on Pennard Playing field.

The idea came from and had support via VocalEyes and the Council agreed to use some of the 2018/19 £5000 budget allocated to ideas from this community engagement platform as match-funding.

The Community Council went out to tender and appointed a contractor at their November meeting to deliver the study.

Further community engagement on this idea will be taking place over the coming months so watch out for public meeting announcements if you would like to have your voice heard.

Categories: Ideas into Action

Following on from the Council's Climate and Ecological Emergency declaration in May, the Council have worked with residents to produce an action plan for 2020.

The plan will soon be available for download from the Council website along with a pledge card for residents to identify any changes they are currently making to improve their carbon footprint and make pledges to move these actions forward during the period of the plan.

In order for the actions in the plan to be realised, the Community Council will be looking for interested residents to support the Council in realising this year's plan and producing one for the following year.

Connecting Rural Communities
The Swansea Rural Community Voice Project ran for two years and in many ways achieved positive outcomes that went beyond the scope of the project. The potential for people to come together around common goals and themes such as the environment, transport and food and growing was realised within individual communities.

We would like to begin a new project, building on this success, with the aim of connecting people within communities along these themes and further connecting these groups to share ideas and best practice across the eight rural wards of Swansea, increasing the resilience and sustainability within all rural communities.

We will be recruiting volunteer Community Champions who will help raise awareness of the project within these communities and approach local businesses and organisations to sponsor the community group. Through this sponsorship, our aim is to create self sustaining jobs for Community Champions and in turn ensure ongoing services for Community Voice.

The sponsorship package on offer will allow local businesses to advertise not only offers and services but also any positive impact they have had within their communities. This sponsorship will ensure the continued free use of the platform in communities, the generation of a quarterly Community Voice publication and will also pay for an employee to manage engagement and volunteers within these communities.

Please rate this idea to help us keep the conversation going and give a voice to everyone in rural Swansea.

If you need any more information, please call 0800 689 0290.

Thanks

Continued development of Message Bus at Pennard Field
The Message Bus has been coming to Pennard Community Field for the last four months. This is a safe place for young people (ages 11-17) to meet. The bus is kitted out with Xbox, PlayStation, DJ iPad, board games and nail bar. Relationships have been built over the four months with young people and families. The bus will be returning in September but we are looking to expand this and want to see how many people want to see this return and develop.

More bins at Pennard Roundabout
The bins at Pennard Roundabout get over-full in the summer and rubbish that people leave at the side of them ends up getting blown about.

One solution could be to have more bins, preferably with increased recycle facilities.
