Community Organising Team
Volunteers to join a Community Organising Team with the aim of enabling an ongoing conversation with residents to suggest, rate and debate ideas to improve our community. Priorities emerging from this ongoing conversation can then be used as evidence of need for working groups to research potential solutions. Projects can then be created to be crowdsourced into local ownership. Do pledge to volunteer if you’d like to be involved in empowering our community through participatory and digital democracy.

Dark Sky Community Team
It is proposed that the Council pursue a Dark Sky designation with partners. The most appropriate designation will need to be confirmed, but the most likely is ‘Dark Sky Community’. Defined as:
‘A town, city, municipality or other legally organized community that has shown exceptional dedication to the preservation of the night sky through the implementation and enforcement of a quality outdoor lighting ordinance, dark sky education and citizen support of dark skies. Dark Sky Communities excel in their efforts to promote responsible lighting and dark sky stewardship, and set good examples for surrounding communities.’
Gower AONB Partnership, Gower Activity Centres and Dark Sky Wales are already keen to develop this project and would like to hear from others who want to know more and get involved

Bishopston Skate Facility Project
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.
