development of a Young People’s Action Group, play initiatives in a local park and holiday playschemes
establishment of the Friends of Llandeilo Talybont Old Churchyard – Ancient Monument site
production of a local newsletter
establishment of the flourishing monthly Pontarddulais Local Produce Market
involvement in the Keep Wales Tidy Campaign through organising local litter picks
Its future plans include helping to develop a young people’s drop in centre, identifying support to help with the revitalisation of the high street and take up of underused properties, and developing the cultural strength of the town – particularly in terms of its Welsh language tradition and building on its rich heritage.
The Partnership also aims to encourage people to become involved as volunteers, with the potential of using volunteering as a way back into training and skills development.
Our community office now acts as a focal point for organising and as a resource for information, with increasing numbers of people dropping in to chat about ideas, find out information and volunteer to get involved. [visit website]
