Mumbles Community Association (MCA) is inviting anyone interested in the development of Underhill Park, whether they currently use the park or not, to attend a public meeting taking place at 7:00pm on Friday 31 January, at All Saints Church in Mumbles.
Following on from the announcement that planning permission has been granted, the focus of the meeting is on exploring options for getting the development started. The Trustees will also be providing an update on the project and specific details of the Phase 1 elements.
Whilst grant bids and funding applications have or are being made, MCA are inviting users of the Park, people living in the local area, and those with an interest in the activities that could take place in the Park, to come along to discuss how they can help make it happen.
Ideas on ways in which people could help include:
- Donating money, helping to raise funds or sponsoring elements of the build
- Giving, or facilitating access to, in kind support for materials, equipment or labour which could bring down the direct monetary cost of construction
- Any skills or expertise which people are willing to give to help the construction, particularly in relation to site management
Chair of MCA, Simon Tse, said:
We are hoping that people from across the community who want to see the development of Underhill Park taking place will come along to the meeting and offer their help to make the Go Underhill plans happen.
We want to see some progress in 2020, so the goal for the meeting is to establish what we can do for ourselves as a community and connect with local people who can help us move things along. It’s important for us to help ourselves as well as seeking support from grant bodies.
