South Wales Guardian Opinion

AMMANFORD’S cricketers want to replace one of Ammanford Park’s four tennis courts with a practice facility.
The South Wales Premier League champions say the development of their juniors is being curtailed by the fact they are the only club in the county without nets. Opponents argue that the loss of such a facility is unacceptable.
Although everyone seems to acknowledge that nets are required there are conflicting views on where they should actually go.
But Ammanford Park is extremely spacious and the envy of other towns.
Surely there is room for a two-lane practice pitch to be accommodated without the loss of a tennis court?
What about the area set aside for boules, which is seldom used?
● THE countdown to Christmas has begun. But if Yuletide is mainly for kids it can cause a lot of angst for cash-strapped adults.
The truth is that Christmas can be a massive headache for poorer families – and this is where Guardian readers can help through supporting the Christmas Toybox scheme.
Toy and gift collections points at our office in Quay Street and at Ammanford Town Hall are among several being set up in the county.
All you have to do is drop the toys off. They will then be collected regularly and distributed to families in need.
The heart-warming generosity of our readers meant theGuardian front office resembled the famous Hamleys toy store last year. We are sure it will be a similar story this time round…
