Maes Y Felin (Valleys to Coast)

Valleys To Coast residents in Maes Y Felin, Wildmill Bridgend are keen to make better use of an abandoned play park near Cemetry Road. The land is Local Authority owned and the play equipment was taken away some years ago and there is just tarmac left behind.

Space Saviours encouraged the residents to hold a community consultation event on the site to gauge opinion from the neighbours and to establish interest in starting a community project. Space Saviours arranged fro Groundwork Wales to attend with a loose parts play session and Keep Wales Tidy attended and made bird feeders and talked about local wildlife.

A number of residents were interested in starting a project and they have been matched up with a consultant to discuss permissions to use the land from the Council, low cost play design options and sustainability. They are currently working with Wild Spirit to move the project forward.
