Pirate Ship

Arrrr… there be ‘play’ ahoy matey!

Kids on the Play Right pirate shipLat summer, Play Right’s Pirate Ship plotted a course around six of our local communities - Parc Penrhiw in Betws, Carmarthenshire; Clos Nant Ddu in Ynysmeudwy, Neath Port Talbot; Pont Aur in Ystradgynlais, Powys; Bryn Parc in Morriston; Melin Mynach in Gorseinon and Ffordd-y-Bryn in Birchgrove, Swansea.

Each year, working with our Neighbourhood Housing Officers and Service Improvement Team, Play Right identifies communities for support based on a range of criteria, including the number of children living on the estate, the levels of perceived issues around anti-social behaviour involving children and young people.

Residents then signed up for Playful Communities training as a result of the Pirate Ship visits and Ystradgynlais was been marked for an open community meeting due to the level of interest from the wider community in the project.
