Hi I am a poet and I am thinking about contributing a piece for the
cause.

Is this something you would be interested in?

Thanks Nathan, Great idea.
 
For me, the interesting thing about Clyne Valley is how it contains so many examples of most types of habitats and uses, over the centuries. From Bronze age to 21stC. Play Area. I'm hopeless at poetry, so look forward to your contribution !
 
Cheers from Nesta and John

sounds fascinating Nathan

.....did you know that it all comments have to be done online by friday
(30th)?...so time is VERY limited, but I'd put it on the website quickly and
put it on the facebook pages.

oh, and it would have to be a poem that didnt just be rude at the council,
for example!!!

Sorry Nathan, I thought as much. If you still are inspired to verse, we will of course still feature it on website and facebook etc, its just that we can't make the real 'song and dance' about the poem that we may have been able to do if it was completed by friday....eg possibilities then would have included including in the file for the Planning dept and also the Evening Post press release.

I will give it a go but it will take a few weeks, nice website Carrie by the way, I pass your house when I go for my morning runs, I always wondered what all the Touchwood signs were about...

It would take me a few years to write a poem Nathan. Good luck. Cheers, Nesta

Hi Carrie and all,
 
Ref. my note in my previous email copied and pasted from Swansea Council website on Tuesday that "Consultation ends 30.9.2011 at 11.59 AM"
 
They've now altered this on their website to  "...... 11.59 PM" !!!!! WORDS FAIL ME !!! They must have altered this after I spoke to Emyr Jones yesterday, and he confirmed it was "..11.59 AM".
 
Spoke to Rachel Davies this morning, and she confirmed it should be 11.59 PM.
 
So it's 11.59 PM then folks.
 
If this is how this fiasco proceeds, dread to think what the outcome will be.
 
Totally p.o. (Sorry !)
Cheers from Nesta
