A new luncheon club got underway in Garnant last week with 17 new members turning up for its first day.
The club is run by volunteers, and is held every Thursday at the Garnant Club, Cwmamman Road.
It is one of the latest to be launched by the independent sector since Carmarthenshire County Council handed over responsibility for such clubs in order to allow them to become more flexible.
The club provides an opportunity for older members of the community to meet and socialise over a freshly cooked hot meal.
Entertainment, including bingo, is also provided.
Local member, Cllr Kevin Madge, has worked closely with the community to get the new club up and running.
He said: “We were thrilled to welcome 17 new members on the first day of the club, and hope that this will grow over time. This new club provides a great sociable activity for older members of the community, and the volunteers that have taken it on deserve all the support and praise they can get. Well done to everyone involved.”
