A COMMUNITY project has been set up in Llandeilo to help link local residents with groups, clubs and volunteer services.

Llandeilo Community Action Hub began in March this year creating a central point of contact, through Facebook, leafleting and other platforms, with information available to the local community of Llandeilo and the surrounding area.

It will establish a directory that will show how to access groups and organisations, how to join and also how to volunteer.

A spokeswoman said: "There is so much going on in the town including sports clubs, support groups, social groups, food producing associations, art groups and creative projects. People will be able to clearly see what’s going on in Llandeilo and decide if they want to join in or volunteer their time and services."

The Covid-19 pandemic saw people helping out where they could in Llandeilo with over 150 people signing up to volunteer for the Covid-19 Support Group.

The spokeswoman added: "It has been an extraordinary collective of local people showing what a strong sense of community our town of Llandeilo has.

"The Action Hub aims to build on this to create a central point of contact, through Facebook, leafleting and other platforms, with information available to all."

There is already a long list of local groups being compiled including TACLO – a group who keep the town clean and tidy with litter picking events, Tregib Sports facilities, fitness groups, mental health services, dementia support, food networks and town festival committees.

If you are a club or group who would like be included, or a volunteer who wants to be active in the community or an organisation looking for volunteers - you are asked to get in touch.

Volunteer forms are being published where you add your details and what you are interested in volunteering for.

Details of groups and volunteer forms will be posted on The Llandeilo Community Action Hub Facebook page and on the Covid19 Support Group website https://llandeilocovid19.com/

Information and volunteer forms will also be available at the Llandeilo library.

Later in the year look out for information on the new Llandeilo noticeboard which will be incorporated into the community mosaic mural currently being created in the walkway between the main carpark and Rhosmaen Street.
