After consultation with the mayor of Ammanford, and at the town council's request, it has been agreed that the Act of Remembrance will take place at the Memorial Gates on Sunday, November 8 at 10.45am.

The short service will be restricted to just one representative from each of the invited organisations in order to comply with Welsh Government regulations on the control of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Veterans are most welcome to attend as usual but all participants must wear face-coverings and adhere to social distancing.

Ammanford British Legion branch community officer, Luke Toms, is also urging Ammanford residents to support this year's Poppy Appeal. 

He said: "The coronavirus pandemic has seen a change in collections this year. With the current closure of the High street shops we have turned to the supermarkets to help with the appeal. 

"Lidl, Tesco, Co-op in Ammanford and Llandybie will have unmanned stations where shoppers can pick up a poppy and make a donation in one of the collection tins."
