June 2019

Just like the swallows (and in due course the house martins) the Space Capsule Super Loo has arrived for the second year running and sited adjacent to the public lavatories. While debate continues between ‘official bodies’ in Carmarthenshire County Council, thanks surely to the Community Council are due for facilitating  this.

It is noted that the two speed humps by the Farmers Arms have been removed – no doubt they will return or is this a step in the right direction?

A replacement planter for the Panel Area has been constructed and installed thanks to a kind-hearted local resident to replace the original oak one which some decided was beyond repair. The bench is due for refurbishment over the next few months when the new Welsh oak slats are to hand.

Please come along and support the activities laid on by members of this group during the summer at the Pavilion:

Sunday 23rd June 2019
Fun Day and Strawberry Tea

Further details to be announced.

February 2019

New Year Greetings to all readers of this column.
It is quite surprising, that despite the majority of people who claim to read the newsletter, how many there are who either don ’t read it or absorb what it contains and then say “We didn’t know about that event”. After all the effort to write the item, get it printed and then delivered, surely it is not asking too much for people to actually read it?

The district was alive with Christmas related events this year – Carol Singing, Christmas Tree Lighting, Christmas lights and parties galore – enough for everybody. All the organisers are to be congratulated in such a variety of events, while the Chapels and Churches maintained a solid and traditional grip on the true meaning of Christmas.

Little, if anything, has occurred during the past couple of months in Pencader and District. Although the recent ram raid and a drugs raid did produce some police activity over the holiday period.
