Have Your Say!

If you haven’t had a chance yet to tell us your views about how to make Uplands & Brynmill cleaner, greener and more pedestrian friendly, NOW is the time!

We have 6 suggestions in our Uplands Living Streets manifesto and we want to know which are the top three for Uplands and Brynmill residents. We will then ask our Councillors to adopt the three most popular and work with us to make them happen!

Find our 6 suggestions on this form: Uplands Living Street Manifesto

Please let us know your top three by sending the form back to us at: uplandsswanseagroup@livingstreets.org.uk by Monday 10th January.

Thank you and Nadolig Llawen.

Welcoming the festive season

winter solstice on the green on The Grove

We welcomed the festive season and upcoming winter solstice on the green on The Grove last night with a lovely carol concert, where at least a hundred people from our community sang along together with Aderyn Du Brynmill Community Choir. The weather was cold, but getting together with everyone certainly warmed our hearts!

Thanks to all who came, Margot Morgan & Aderyn Du Community Choir, Chris on the keyboards, Jake and Chris for technical support, Joe for publicity, and our Uplands Living Streets Core Group organisers Jenny, Anne and Brigid. Onwards & Uplands!

We’ve Done It! Crowdfunding Goal Reached!

We’ve Done It! Crowdfunding Goal Reached!

AMAZING NEWS!  Uplands Living Streets can now announce that we have reached our crowdfunding target for the Onwards & Uplands campaign!

Swansea Council’s match funding of just over £3,000 came in, taking us over our crowdfunding target!!  That’s on top of £1000 received from Councillors Nick Davies and Mary Sherwood from their local budget, and 50 donations from community members and local businesses!  It’s amazing amazing news, thank you so much to everyone who has contributed!!! 🌟🎉😍

This means we can get started on the project earlier than we had previously hoped for! 

🌺 Raised beds for flowers and herbs!
🌻 Chatty benches for community chats!
🧚‍♀️ A nature trail, “the three parks challenge”!
🐝 Creative interventions across the area!
There is still time to add your donation if you haven’t done so yet!  By making a donation before we close you will get:
🌻 A sunflower to grow in your window / garden!
🌳 Your name on a community gratitude tree!
🏆 Your business logo on a Thank You banner!
🙋‍♀️ The sense of having contributed to the community!
🙏 Our personal heartfelt appreciation!

And of course, there will be lots of opportunities to get involved as the project swings into the delivery phase, so watch this space or drop us a message to stay connected! Thanks again everyone, we can’t quite believe it!

PLUS!  Come and talk to us if you’re out and about at Uplands Market this weekend, we’ll be there asking people where they would like to see our new CHATTY BENCHES located!
