An Over 55's Luncheon Club at Dafen Community Hall looks set to come to an end, along with four other clubs in Llanelli Rural areas, unless new caterers can be found.
Hywel Dda’s Bryntirion kitchen, which supplies food to Llanelli Rural Council’s luncheon clubs, is due to close soon; the service to the Rural Council will cease in December.
The Leader of Council, Cllr. Carol Rees, said “the luncheon clubs have been running for 25 years and have provided an excellent community and social facility for ages 55+. It will be a shame for them to close”.
Any catering company who is interested in providing and delivering two course meals in insulated boxes to halls in Felinfoel, Sandy, Trallwm, Saron and Dafen, are welcome to contact Mrs Dawn Jones at the Rural Council on 01554 774103 for further information.
St John Lloyd School has become the first in the county to be formally recognised for their work with young carers.It has achieved the Investors in Carers Bronze level award, presented by Hywel Dda University Health Board, which celebrates the excellent work they have undertaken with pupils who are young carers.
The scheme, launched in autumn 2014, is designed to help health facilities such as GP practices and hospitals focus on and improve their carer awareness and enhance the help and support they give carers. Now the initiative will recognise schools to highlight the role of young carers.
A wide range of information and advice is available for young carers in the school and staff have worked hard to ensure pupils understand how to get support that can make all the difference for them and the person they care for.
The school, who have received the support of Carmarthenshire Young Carers service, have also raised awareness of what a carer is for those pupils who do not have caring responsibilities.
