Llanelli Rotarians hear about prison life

Image
Members of Llanelli Rotary were given a hugely informative talk about the workings of the prison service when they held their weekly meeting at the Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli. The talk was given by two members of Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) service, David Richards and Tarul Clement. Mr Richards gave his address from the perspective of his work at Swansea Prison in Oystermouth Road, Swansea. Mr Clement is deputy controller at Parc Prison in Bridgend, which is run by G4S, so he was able to provide a view from the private prison sector. Mr Richards, left, and Mr Clement, right, are pictured with Llanelli Rotary Club president Ken Abban. Website - http://llanellirotary.com

Councillors visit Capel Iwan hall project

Image
Two of Carmarthenshire’s senior councillors have visited Capel Iwan to see how a rural community hall is about to benefit from a Rural Grant to improve their facilities.
The new executive board member for rural affairs Cllr Jim Jones and the executive board member for regeneration and leisure Cllr Meryl Gravell called at Y Ganolfan, Capel Iwan, called in to see the plans that have been drawn up for the improvements.

Y Ganolfan is run by an active voluntary committee formed in 1987 that oversee the daily running of the hall as well as organising various events throughout the year.
Since the recent closure of the local primary school, Y Ganolfan is now the only community venue available for hosting community activities and events so the need for better facilities that can cater for all types of occasions is even more of a necessity. A number…

Cllr Kevin Madge has offered to be one of the male ambassadors who will speak out against violence towards women as part of the campaign.
Joyce Watson AM, Assembly Member for Mid and West Wales, along with The National Federation of Women’s Institutes-Wales, are urging groups, organisations and associations across the country to pledge their support.
