Secure Community Farm - Plaid

24/07/2015

Plaid Cymru Swansea West Assembly candidate Dr Dai Lloyd has called on the Welsh Government to step in to secure the future of Swansea's community farm in Fforestfach.

This follows concern that the farm may be forced to close its doors without greater public support.

"The community farm performs a vital educational role, especially among younger people not familiar with the countryside", said Dr Lloyd, a local GP.

"It is vital that we defend our key assets in this period of austerity and cuts forced on us by Westminster", said Dr Lloyd.

"I would like to see the Welsh Government and Swansea Council cooperating to secure further funding from the Lottery and other sources to make sure the community farm can continue its excellent work."
