As you may know, Mumbles Community Council (MCC) has recently taken on the lease of the Ostreme Centre, and will be managing the centre with the continued assistance of the Ostreme Community Association (OCA).

MCC is currently exploring the potential for the centre; they are keen to create a community hub that better meets the needs of the Mumbles community and are in the process of developing a business plan that will inform what the centre is used for, and what changes will be needed to the building to enable this to happen.

To help with the development of the business plan, MCC are keen to consult the local community and feed in your views.  We would be grateful if you could complete this short survey, which will help MCC to ensure the Ostreme Centre better meets the needs of local residents.
