COMMUNITY spirit is alive and kicking in Gorseinon, as members of one Swansea Council project are proving every week.
If you should find yourself in the town's Argyle Gardens on a Tuesday afternoon you may encounter a group of volunteers clearing the park of litter.
The weekly efforts of members of social services' Gorseinon Social Development Service, have won the respect of the community and the local town council.
Sheila O'Sullivan, who manages the service for adults with learning difficulties, said: "We are a small, personal, locally- based service which means that everything we do with our service users links into their own local community.
"When we do the litter-pick we often get people telling our volunteers we are doing a great job."
