Is it possible that we could have a local collection of unused and unwanted gifts, perhaps in the produce market. Maybe the gifts could go to Swansea’s homeless, women’s refuge or a local charity for fundraising raffles?
The cows wonder around the housing estates and use these paths regularly. You only need the cows to be spooked and they stampede up these paths putting people using them in danger or risk causing a car accident when they run onto the road. I would like all our children in the community to feel safe when walking down these pathways and not have to worry about meeting cows.
The cows also tend to poo a lot and it's very hard to avoid the poo when walking up these narrow paths especially when pushing a pram.
Please can we consider easy access gates to stop a potential accident/death and keep the poo out.
Petitions to install a cattle grid to keep cows out of the village don't seem to have worked so this is just an idea to keep them out of our pathways where there is no room to avoid them.
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.
