Bonymaen Communities First Group

The group was established in July 2006 to provide meetings/classes of interest to the members. Simply Us is a group of between fifteen and twenty women between the ages of twenty and forty that regularly meet in Bonymaen Communities First Centre. The group was established in July 2006 to provide meetings/classes of interest to the members to help them gain confidence and new skills. To date they have learnt jewellery making and other craft activities and have been undertaking confidence building classes. More recently they have undertaken a ten week history course organised through the Adult Continuing Education Department at the University of Wales, Swansea. This course provided the basis for their application to join the Community Archives Wales project. The group are researching the history of the carnival in Bonymaen and have already gathered a number of photographs, programmes and costumes to digitise for their community archive. There is a wonderful community spirit in Bonymaen and an infectious enthusiasm for the project throughout the wider community involving all age groups.
