Well it's been a whirlwind couple of months but we are up and running with our Community Voice project! We have started in Pennard and have our first list of priorities for the ward. We have so much support for the project it's really fantastic to be a part of it. Rebecca Evans AM and MP Tonia Antionazzi are thrilled to be involved in such an innovative and exciting project and have committed to help us out in any way they can.

Cllr. Lynda James, for Pennard, is also keen to engage with the community and will soon be adding her community budget to the process so we can all see where this funding is being prioritized in line with the community's needs. We have a new Twitter account with frequent tweets about progress and groups we’re working with. Follow us @swanseavoice to keep up to date with developments.

 We are working in partnership with Friends of Pennard Library (FoPL) in Pennard and Gower Access Path (GAP) in Bishopston – where we’re heading to next with the project. We are also about to start discussions with AFC Pennard about their aspirations for women/girls sports teams in the ward and a fit-for-purpose Pavilion on the Playing Field. You can make a difference to the community without leaving your armchair but if you're inspired by the project and want to be involved, we are recruiting teams of Community Organisers in all 8 wards.

We need diverse teams of people with many different skill sets so don't be shy or sit at home thinking there wouldn't be a place for you; contact me now at susan.r@vocaleyes.org and help bring positive changes to your community! There are very exciting times ahead - more and more people are registering with www.vocaleyes.org and having their say on what they want in their communities.

Coming soon is our first "Coffee, Cake and Communicate" event with plenty more to follow. We are also about to launch a very exciting competition for the younger members of the community with a fantastic £50 prize! I’ll be back soon with more news on our progress – keep communicating! Susan x PS Here are Pennard's priorities for August: http://vocaleyes.org/vocaleyes/group/idea-report/grp/3502/token/8a1c7347af8ff51ef7b4b2f2b78e6658
