An independent charity to deliver Go Underhill
Mumbles Community Association (MCA) is made up of a group of like-minded volunteers who have been working together for many years to improve the facilities at Underhill Park.
These volunteers include representatives of all the major users of the Park, including football, rugby and cricket along with an advisory group who want to encourage different and inter-generational activities that will contribute to developing a positive community spirit.
A strong base for the charity was provided by a formal agreement between Mumbles Rangers football club and Mumbles Rugby Football Club to work together on the project for the benefit of everyone.
We all see ourselves as working on behalf of the community in Mumbles and the surrounding areas. Our aim is to fully represent what they want to see happen at Underhill Park, by consulting at every stage of the development. Our vision for the Park is based on what the community want – more and better facilities, plus social and community spaces where people can meet and where everyone is welcomed.
The agreement which has been reached with City & County of Swansea means that, once the first element of the development has been completed, we will take on management of Underhill Park for the next 125 years… so we’re definitely here for the long-term.
MCA is a Registered Charity, registration number 1164553.
