Sports Clubs for Girls and Young Women
It would be great to have some team sports for girls in the community. How about Netball or Hockey or Touch Rugby? If anyone is interested in helping or playing, hit the "I'd like to get involved button" and someone will be in touch to explore the best way forward.

If you have a preference which sport we start with then please write it in the comments.

Eco Youth Council at Gower Roundhouse.
To provide a base for a 'Gower youth council' at Gower Unearthed's new roundhouse facility at Parkmill. The incentive is to create a community hub for Gower ward that provides young people with a project and a voice that allows them to have an active part in their community-with an environmental focus. The main objective is to provide courses and activities to educate or help young people actively protect their local environment and heritage

Multi use games area up the park
Lots of people who like to play football at the park play against the pavilion , and for people who like to play netball there is nowhere to play in Pennard . So why not get one so instead of them being on their gadgets they can be getting fit, healthy and socialising.

A Youth Community Council
With the introduction of the Welsh Youth Parliament, the need for our young people to have a voice has more relevance than ever before. Do you think the Community Council should have a Youth Council too in order to make sure the voices of this generation are heard?

Community Bike & Skateboard Repair Stand & Pump
A community bike repair stand with a integrated pump provides cyclists & skateboarders with a stable workstation to tune their bike and make repairs.

* The station will encourage people of all ages to use sustainable Transport eg Bikes & Skateboards.

* It will also promote Biking and Skateboarding for Bishopston Pump-track Project & Pennard Skatepark Project. We could have a QR code on the station which will show the website and Facebook pages of Sustaniable community projects in the ward.

* A location near Bishopston Comprehensive and Pennard & Bish Primary schools would be ideal as it would be used by hundreds of local children and adults. We have ran a survey in the primary and secondary school and almost 90% of students own a bike!

* Pennard is an entrance to Gower it is perfect to pull in passing cyclists to fix their bike who can then use the local shops too.

Please contact us at Bishopston.skatepark@gmail.com so we can turn this idea into a reality. We have been quoted that this station will cost around £1500 inc VAT.

A social club/cafe for 16yrs plus
A place for young people 16 yrs plus to hang out and socialise.
an evening cafe where we can hang out with our friends indoors and buy food and drink at reasonable prices to suit our limited budgets. Maybe have some board games/ card games, tv etc. available.
It would be restricted to 16yrs +
We could even have a membership system to ensure good behaviour and accountability.
it would also be nice to have a visiting expert or speaker occasionally on topics like jobs/CV/sports or hobbies.

Youth Cafe
Volunteer run youth cafe maybe for Dungeons and Dragons or board games or a comic cafe? Perhaps one of the local cafes/restaurants would host this to provide somewhere our older young people can gather and have fun?

Conversation Cafe
Young People are interested in a wide range of topics. We could set up a Conversation Cafe for young people to have the opportunity to learn about different topics that interest them. For example Environmental or Political topics.

The young people would decide what they want to know more about and the Cafes would be attended by an expert in the area who would be able to answer questions and have a lively discussion in a relaxed environment.
