QT Club launches new bus service in West Wales

On Friday, May 23, the Taf Quality Time Club (the QT Club), which provides a lively meeting point for families coping with dementia-related illnesses, will be launching its free bus service for people who want to attend club meetings.
The bus will collect people from St Clears, Bancyfelin and Whitland at first and later will be extended to include Meidrim, Llangynin and Laugharne.
The service will run at convenient times and deliver (and return) carers and those for whom they care to the club in St Clears.
The funds which have enabled this new service to be offered by the QT Club have come from the National Lottery Awards for All Wales and generous donations from supportive organisations and individuals.
Club chairman, Reg Wyeth from St Clears, said “Having a bus service to bring people to the QT Club is a major goal that I wanted to achieve during the club’s first year and I’m immensely indebted to Awards for All Wales for making it happen. Often, when memory loss strikes, people become more house-bound than ever. This service is designed to help those who don’t drive or are without their own transport or who may have their driving licence revoked.”
The club meets every fortnight and those wishing to take advantage of bus service can contact either
Jeff Gronow on 01267 211872 or club founder, Reg Wyeth on 01994 231828, both of whom will know the pick up locations and the bus arrival times. There will be no charge for the bus journey.
The QT Club is a social club which provides entertainment and activities for those with dementia related illnesses and their carers. Membership is free and the atmosphere is very welcoming. The club meets on alternate Fridays at 2pm in the St Clears Boating Club with the next meetings being May 23, June 6 & 20. Laugharne Travel will be arranging the bus service.
