Llansamlet is a big area and there are many residents here. Having a community council in the area would support local people to have their voices heard better, and will allow locals to have better access to funding, in order to improve our part of town.
My name is Hari and I have recently started work with VocalEyes as a community champion in Llansamlet and Morriston. I like to play music and love nature. I'm really excited about the idea of working with the local people to help them make positive changes to their areas.
These are worrying and uncertain times with many people having to self isolate. The older and more vulnerable members of our community may be cut off from their families and friends and unable to get in supplies and medication.
If anyone is able and willing to help with shopping, prescription collecting etc then please please do so! So many members of our community are going to need help at this time and if we all can do our little bit, we will get through this OK!
Wouldn't it be a really cool idea if we had a sort of porter cabin or similar to use as a community base? Local groups could use it to hold meetings and activities. If it was situated in a suitable area it could even have its own garden/orchard/veg patch.
So many of us in the area have beloved dogs as part of our families. This is an idea for us to get together on maybe a weekly basis for our dogs and us owners to socialise and get some valuable exercise!
We could meet by the Plough pub, walk around the nature reserve off Walter Road and finish back at the pub for a cheeky nip to warm back up!
