The works at the park, i.e the installation of the new equipment and improvements to the entrance, will now commence on the 4th March. The contractor has apologised for the delay but due to the wet weather he has been held up on his current contract
*** Due to the very wet weather and that the ground is saturated, the contractor has decided to postpone the start of the works at the park for a few weeks ***
Hopefully starting at the end of January will be this exciting new project to improve the ‘kiddies’ area in Llangunnor Park. The entrance will also get a facelift. The Community Council, who are behind this project have further exciting ideas for the park but a public consultation will take place in April / May, to see what you the community want us to do for you over the next few years.
Councillor John Porter was co-opted on to Llangunnor Community Council at the September meeting and attended his first meeting in October
The annual turning on of the lights on the Christmas tree by Towy Garage took place on Wednesday 21st November. A large crowd enjoyed listening to the school choir singing a medley of carols. The lights on the were turned on by Rhydian Edwards, chair of the school council, and the Christmas message was delivered by the Rev. Ceri Davies. The children and parents then followed Santa Claus over to the Babell to enjoy a cup of tea and a mince pie and of course Santa's Grotto.
A special thanks to Morrisons for providing the refreshments and the presents for the children.

|"Calling all steam train enthusiasts" (10/06/18)
Saturday 7th July will see a steam train return to Carmarthen station
as The Sugar Loaf Mountaineer makes the journey down the Heart of Wales line being pulled by
‘Black Five’ no. 45231 ‘The Sherwood Forester’
The journey celebrates 150 years since the Heart of Wales line was opened to traffic. The engine is expected to arrive at Carmarthen station mid afternoon (around 15.30) and is expected to be at the station for
about an hour so plenty of opportunity for photographs and to take in the atmosphere.
