Evening Post Reporter, Jason Evans in an article on the 24th July 2015 reminds SURFERS not to give opportunist thieves the chance to steal their car keys.

He advises that during summer months thieves target people who leave car keys on the beach or “hidden” on their vehicle. He goes on to tell us that earlier in the week a surfer fell victim to this crime when thieves stole a Ford Fiesta from the Caswell Bay car park.

A Key Safe  scheme is being promoted at the Surfside Cafe and police teamed-up with Oystermouth Primary School pupils to design a poster. The winning design, by Year five pupil Samuel Phillips will be put on display at Caswell Bay car park to help drive home the message.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of the silver Fiesta. CV54 EDG or a Honda motorbike R456 EBE please contact the police in Swansea phone 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 (the motorbike was stolen from Western Lane, Mumbles on Tuesday evening, it was chained to a lamppost).



A letter in the Evening Post from Alan and Hazel Bryant, 24th July 2015, highlights the rapidly deteriotion in the appearance of Oystermouth.

They point out that “Mumbles is a magnet for tourists and the  local traders are heavily dependant on visitors for survival. But with visitors comes litter”.

This letter highlights not only the litter problem but dog-mess, damage to roads and pavements and makes many other points also including the the state of Oystermouth Square and also the Pier.

Well done for pointing out these faults. The Mumbles Community Council does do its best keep the City Council aware of these problems and to ensure that necessary repair works are carried out as quickly as possible.

Please write to the Community Council if you have any other concerns about the state of Mumbles/Oystermouth.

There will be a concert at All Saint’s church on 7th August, starting at 7.00pm .

This  concert will feature Angharad Morgan, soprano, and David Forte, tenor. This programme will include songs from musicals such as Phanton Of

The Opera, My Fair Lady and Thoroughly Modern Millie.
