For those of you that aren't already aware, the AWS recycling centre in Llangadog closed yesterday - Friday 24th March. This is a week earlier than originally stated.

Alternative arrangements are being made to provide recycling banks at Llandovery Rugby Club. The council is aiming for this new site to be open for April 1.

Black bag waste, garden waste, electricals and wood etc should be taken to the nearest recycling centre at Wernddu near Ammanford whilst the council looks at the longer-term provision for the area.



This scheme is available to all holders of a Concessionary Travel Pass issued by any Welsh Local Authority. Pass holders will be eligible for free travel on all ATW services between Llangadog and Swansea/Shrewsbury. This year's concession runs from 1st October 2016 until 31st March 2017.



Would you be interested in having a regular shopping trip by coach to Abergavenny Farmers Market and Waitrose one month, and to Aldi and Leekes at Crosshands the next month?

If there are enough of you interested the fare would be around £6. If you are interested, please contact Catherine on 01550-777980.
