It is a nearly full house for this year’s Gower Macmarathon.
And organisers for Macmillan cancer charity are urging people to sign up quickly for the sponsored 22-mile walk which takes place on September 7 from Rhossili Bay car park.
There will also be a 14-mile walk from Port Eynon and both routes will finish at Mumbles Cricket Club where there will be a well-earned welcome party.
Paul Davies, Macmillan regional manager, said: “We had 1,100 walkers take part last year raising a fantastic £103,000. It is the sponsorship that’s raised by walkers that enables Macmillan to continue to fund vital cancer services in the area.
The headlines of the Evening Post 30th July 13 leaves
anybody with a terrible impression of Swansea City.
It tells us that the cost of cleaning up other peoples rubbish and dog mess equals £2.7 million a year. Of that total a half a million pounds is spent on clearing the City centre alone.
As a result, it is stated that the council is to enlist (employ I think it means) an enforcement company which will be responsible for issuing £75 fixed penalty notices to anyone who litters or doesn’t cleanup after their dog.
Additional litter teams will provide patrols of the city’s parks, beaches and car parks to ensure they are kept up to scratch.
If you know of any area in Mumbles that has a problem with litter please contact the Community Council at 01792 363598 who employ a special clean-up team to deal with such problems.

CHANGES COMING INTO EFFECT FROM 30TH SEPTEMBER 2013 will allow property owners to build a larger range of extensions and garden buildings without submitting a planning application, it is announced by Housing and Regeneration Minister, Carl Sargeant “These changes will allow some of the smaller, less contentious alterations and improvements to houses to be exempt from the planning process”. (Editors view. Perhaps it might be wise to check with the Planning Office first?)
