Gregory Brothers on road in Carmarthenshire

The all-singing and all-dancing Gregory Brothers are back on the road with Dylan the Dragon and Eco Eli taking their fun-packed show to Welsh language primary schools across Carmarthenshire.
Eco Eli, the council’s eco-friendly elephant, and Dylan the Dragon, the healthy schools meals mascot, have teamed up with childrens’ entertainers Paul and Adrian Gregory to raises awareness of healthy living and the environment.
The show is full of fun and games, as well as singing and dancing and will be performed to hundreds of Welsh-speaking pupils in the county.
Eco Eli is hoping to raise awareness of environmental issues such as recycling, saving energy and litter amongst young people.
Dylan the Dragon will be spreading the word on the importance of healthy eating and regular exercise.
A joint initiative by the council’s street scene and catering services departments, the schools will be given a free CD featuring all the songs from the show to use as an additional educational resource as well as the chance to enter a prize draw to win a food hamper and compost bin.
The council has been successful in securing funding from the Welsh Assembly Government to help fund the roadshow.
Executive board member for the environment Councillor Haydn Jones said: “This show aims to raise awareness of healthy living and environmental issues in a fun and interactive way and will assist in the healthy schools initiative and the eco schools programme.
“The show stars Welsh singing duo the Gregory Brothers and also features our healthy dragon mascot Dylan and eco-friendly elephant Eli.
“I know the show will be a big success and help get these important messages across in a light-hearted way.”
Executive board member for education Gwynne Wooldridge said: “This is the second time the Gregory Brothers have toured the county’s schools and their new show is just as entertaining as well as educational.
“It is important we eat a balanced diet and take regular exercise for a long and healthy life and we all have a part to play in creating a safer and cleaner environment. This show is an excellent way of delivering these messages to children so that they learn and enjoy themselves at the same time.”
