Wartime London brought to Llanelli's Antioch Centre courtesy of Ty Golau


With air raid sirens wailing, mixed up with sound effects of bombs dropping, wartime London was brought to Llanelli's Antioch Centre courtesy of Ty Golau.
The realism was brought into sharp focus with a fabulous effort by more than 60 schoolchildren from Penygaer CP School who dressed as evacuees, complete with their suitcases and luggage label name tags.
They mingled at the war year’s re-enactment of the really professional Ty Golau team dressed as munition workers and Land Girls with even Winston Churchill putting in an appearance.
The voluntary group of Janet Lewis and her friends organise different themes for the weekly Ty Golau health and wellbeing sessions for people aged 50+ in homes all over Llanelli, Pembrey, Burry Port and Kidwelly.
Carmarthenshire County Council's executive board member for social care and health, Cllr Jane Tremlett, said: “The Ty Golau team excelled themselves. It was really moving to see the children interacting with the dementia clients as air raid siren sounds mingled with exploding bomb sounds before the ‘all clear’ was sounded.”
