The Llandeilo Community Action Hub

 

The Llandeilo Community Action Hub has been launched and is a group formed between Volunteers, Menter Llandeilo and CAVS. It is both an information and Community Connection tool.

It will map out existing social and community groups, volunteers and services in and around Llandeilo. It will also establish what type of services and groups are needed and encourage such groups and services to form.

It will create a network of Volunteers and match them with groups and people who need them.

Information will be added to the Covid Support Group Website, Co-op’s Co-operate and CAVS’ Connect Carmarthenshire Platforms
A temporary part time position at Menter has been created to work on behalf of the Hub.

A Charitable Committee has been formed to assist with the work.

Latest Llandeilo COVID-19 News

Llandeilo Town's Mayor Councillor Owen James was invited recently to be on TV - S4C's Prynhawn Da programme and described the work of the town Council and its Llandeilo Covid-19 Community Group initiative . Owen praised the work hard of the core team of Llandeilo councillors and the 170 volunteers who have committed to work for us during the crisis.

Llandeilo Community Food Hub which is operating from Ysgol Gynradd Llandeilo Primary was mentioned, along with the fantastic support the local shops are giving to the community, with the Gwili Cafe delivering Meals on Wheels to a large number of elderly residents.

The Mayor Cllr Owen James and his wife, Mayoress Jordan James decided that the staff of our four local care homes, Aweltwyi, Caeglas, Abbeyfield and Bryn Y Wawr needed a bit of cheer and thanks for the hard work they are doing in looking after the residents who are in complete isolation. So four cakes from local patisserie Heavenly were delivered and were much appreciated.



Llandeilo Town Council have recently funded banners to show support for NHS and an information Banner with important information. The town Council also funded and arranged delivery of 2000 leaflets throughout out the area.

 

Coronavirus Update from Wendy Walters, Chief Executive for Carmarthenshire County Council

 

I’d like to take this early opportunity to reassure you as Town and Community Councils about the steps we are taking to prepare for and respond to the developing situation around coronavirus.

Whilst this is an unprecedented situation for our generation, I know that you will be assured that we have a strong team leading a comprehensive contingency plan and we have every faith in the support of all staff as we pull together to rise to this emerging challenge.

We continue to take advice and direction from Public Health Wales and Welsh Government, and are working with our partners to prepare for what may be a lengthy period of disruption.

I’m sure as local councillors you are receiving enquiries from within your own communities, and we value the unique position you hold in supporting us to inform residents of official information and advice.

Please be assured that you will receive regular updates over the coming weeks so that you are kept up to date and well informed. I ask though that you also check the council’s website and social media feed where we will publish any new information we have to share. Asking your communities to check these official channels will help us share important advice and prevent unhelpful speculation.

At this time, I would also like to ask you to appreciate that our focus and priority at the moment will be on dealing with our preparation and response to this evolving situation. As such, please be mindful that whilst we will try to maintain a level of business as usual, we may be unable to respond as quickly as usual to routine enquiries whilst our teams maintain their focus on issues of priority.

Wendy Walters,

Chief Executive for Carmarthenshire County Council

Llandeilo Train Station and Station Road Redevelopment

These photos show the Llandeilo train station and station road redevelopment. The whole area is being developed in the hope that it will not only improve the appearance of the area but will provide much needed additional parking for the town.

 

The Restoration of the Western / Upper Churchyard

You may have noticed some developments in the town recently...

The Town Council are excited to announce that much needed ground clearance and landscaping works have commenced in the churchyard closest to King Street, Llandeilo. In response to community and parish concerns, Mayor Dawn Wallace made contact with the Probation Community Payback scheme which was a catalyst for a schedule of works to be undertaken.

Every Saturday, the Probation volunteers are clearing the ground, brambles, ivy and litter whilst paying close attention to the gravestones, monuments, benches and beautiful trees. You can now enjoy a walk through the space, following the exposed paths. The volunteers have been supported by cups of tea, biscuits and chocolates kindly donated by grateful neighbours to the area. Over the Christmas period, it was so pleasing to see fresh flowers laid to rest on graves which were otherwise inaccessible. 

Future plans include the establishment of a 'working party' consisting of the Town Council, The Civic Trust, The Church PCC and community volunteers. Their remit will be to continue the work of this initial clearing and consider how to further develop the space with additional walk-ways, natural contours, more seating and a peaceful, reflective garden setting for the town.  If you would like to volunteer, the Probation Service volunteers are on-site typically from 11am on a Saturday morning. If you have any comments regarding the project, please email the Town Clerk on clerk@llandeilo.gov.uk
