Llandeilo and District Civic Society’s Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday, July 2 where cash prizes were awarded to the winners of the society’s Pride in Place Photo Competition and framed certificates were presented to winners of its Civic Awards.

The picture shows (from the left) Virginia Scott and Claire Alexander who were awarded prizes for their distinctive photos of places that they particularly love in the society’s area.

Next to them are the Civic Award winners: Lizzie Wilberforce, who accepted the award on behalf of the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales’s volunteers for erecting a new footbridge for public use in Castle Woods; Julia Jones for creating and producing with her husband Gerald Jones the celebrated Llandeilo Fawr Annual Festival of Music now in its nineteenth year; and Meinir Davies of Carreg Law for the notable renovation of 2 King Street, Llandeilo, which has enhanced the appearance of the town.

The presentation was followed by a talk by local historian Roy P Davies about the history of the now unused Llandyfeisant Church, its graveyard and the families buried there which the society hopes will assist in the efforts to conserve both the church and the graveyard.

Further information about the Llandeilo and District Civic Society, which has a programme of events which are free for members, is available on its website.
