What is Swansea News Network?

Patrick Driscall

I was inspired to start Swansea News Network by taking part in the Paris Climate Agreement Protests and realising there is an increased and urgent need for improved connectivity between communities. I work as a Head Gardener. My background has included gardening under the Westway in London, managing a park in Brixton, launching an environmental education centre, community landscape projects and an award-winning canalside regeneration scheme. I also helped set up a new Youth Club in Hackney, London whilst working with Groundwork Hackney. I was a London Editor for the NY-based aRUDE magazine, an intern at The Guardian and Independent on Sunday, have a fashion degree in menswear.

    Thanks for your comment Melanie. As I am just starting up and working alone I’m afraid there are likely to be some typos at this stage. Are you based in Swansea?If you are willing to consider proof reading that might be helpful.
