Funding level: £1,001 to £5,000

Description

We have been given an unused area of the park to develop into a community nature garden. It is a secure space which would be ideal to develop and will benefit the local groups that run in the park such as a welsh language pre-school, the committee who runs a holiday play club as well as the wider community having a growing space for vegetables and flowers that will add colour to the rest of the park and food to run food activities.

This is an exciting project to develop a space within the park which is mainly flat with trees and an old playground but has a lot of potential. This is our first opportunity to develop the park physically and this funding will allow the committee to make our ideas into reality.

The committee has run events such as Gorseinon fun days, holiday play sessions, halloween and christmas sessions for children. Planting days and litter picks within the park. Fundraising activities such as gorseinon's got talent, table top sales, raffles and pub quiz.

The Parc Y Werin Committee

Moment of Pride

The committee first formed when a proposal was put forward to build on the park and brought together a group of people who share a passion for green open spaces and parks. Committed volunteers have stayed together to develop the park and run activities to bring people together in the park.
