We are delighted to welcome the new editorial team behind Swoosh in the Vale of Glamorgan. Editor Kieron Dibbs at the Barry YMCA Hub will be engaging established and new faces back to the Swoosh Editorial Group.

The group will be made up of two teams – journalists and filmmakers – with the latter being able to take advantage of the studios, camera equipment and editing suites at the facility.

We had a sneak peak at what’s available, including state of the art green screen technology, allowing reporters to place themselves in a cosy studio or on location in a snowstorm. Exciting times indeed!

If you’re in the Vale and want to get involved, contact project manager Mike Smith at or on 07837 498417.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the awesome staff at Vibe, which has sadly closed its doors. Dominique, Becky and all the crew have successfully guided Swoosh and the editorial group over the last five years, making it one of the best sites in the CLICcollective.


We’ve had another busy month here at Here is how two large organisations have fed theSprout this month.

Firstly, October saw Blog Action day, when thousands of people all over the world wrote about what inequality means to them. Renew Wales wrote to us on ‘Inequality must end with something we all share: the environment’.

They truly utilised this great opportunity to engage with young people and their article was well-received.

Secondly, October also saw the Welsh Government’s (WG) latest Real Conversation – a not-to-be missed event if you’re into your “have your say” vibes – where over 100 young people, employers and other professionals shared their views on apprenticeships and workforce discrimination. These were all noted for future policy-making, but additions for the WG can be made via theSprout and via CLIConline.

So, if you would like to get your views across for young people in Cardiff, we could be helping you get heard. Get in touch!
