AN AMMAN Valley village is united in grief following the death of 41-year-old Bethan Davies in an horrific road crash on the A483 near Tycroes last week.
Readers may remember that an Amman Valley teacher lost his life in a head-on collision on the same stretch of road six years ago.
An inquest subsequently determined that the crash occurred during appalling weather conditions.
MORE gloom followed when it emerged that Dewhirst’s troubled Capel Hendre warehouse faces closure – the firm have begun a 90-day consultation period with its 114- strong workforce.
The one hope is that the Welsh Government and Carmarthenshire county council can unite to promote the facility with the view of attracting potential buyers. This may seem a tall order in these dire economic times, but it is worth a try.
BUT at least there is some good news.
The future of Ammanford’s Miners’ Theatre has seemingly been secured after trustees held crisis talks with Carmarthenshire Theatres.
As a result no fewer than four events have been lined up at the Miners’ over the next two months.
Let us hope this marks a whole new chapter for the theatre. This is a facility that needs to be used.
