GSYE Grants

The Gower Society has awarded, via GSYE, ten grants this year. Eight of these were for primary schools and two for a secondary school. Where possible the children themselves have been fully involved in the grant applications and with the rise of eco clubs in schools this has been an enhancing and educational activity for them. The recipients have sent us photos of what they have achieved with the grants and these were displayed at the Gower Show along with the applications. GSYE has been attempting to produce a website produced called Gower Explorers to enhance young people’s visitor experience to Gower. We felt that this could be a good use of the Betty Lowe memorial fund. We recognise the need for professional help with this and hope that the Gower Society will consider employing someone to develop and maintain our project, as well as for the main website, as we feel this is a worthwhile venture.
