05/08/2019 - Temporary Road Closure in Penybanc on Tuesday 27th August 2019
A request has been received for the temporary road closure of the C2118 near Dolwar, Penybanc, from a point 60 metres East of its junction with the Unclassified Road U4038 for a distance of 142 meters in an Easterly direction. The closure is necessary to ensure public safety whilst Welsh Water carry out works on a water main in the area from Tuesday 27th of August for a period of 2 days.
The alternative route for Eastbound traffic will be to proceed in a Westerly direction along the C2118 to its junction with the unclassified road. At the junction turn left onto the unclassified road and proceed in a South Easterly direction along the unclassified road to its junction with the C2177 near the property "Pontbren". At the junction turn left onto the C2177 and proceed in a Northerly direction to return to a point East of the closure. Vice Versa for Westbound traffic.

08/07/2019 - Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust Carers Survey
Please find below a message from the Welsh Ambulance Service Trust:
Over the course of the last year the Patient Experience & Community Involvement Team within the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust have been engaging with and collating feedback from carers (especially older carers) that has demonstrated the importance for us to better understand their needs. Carers have told us that they are reluctant to seek help for themselves due to carer responsibilities and their expectations when it is the person they care for needing help. We have developed a survey that is being carried out to capture more in-depth information to help develop our approach to improving experiences and outcomes for carers.
The Carers Survey is now live and can be completed bilingually via the same link. Please feel free to share with colleagues and anyone else you feel is appropriate.

Is your home cold and draughty? Or, are you worried about the cost of heating your home? If yes, you may be eligible for a Free Home Energy Check!

2) Our volunteer will also give you some key tips and advice providing you with guides on how to keep warm and save energy.
3) Provide information on other support services provided by the charity, such as information on welfare benefits you might be entitled to and how to check what benefits these might be.

03/01/2019 - Quad Bike Thefts
Dyfed-Powys Police is warning people to make sure security measures are in place to protect quad bikes, in response to a number of thefts.
There have been 4 reports of stolen quad bikes in the Carmarthenshire area over the week.
Farmers and other owners of quad bikes are reminded to be vigilant of suspicious vehicles and people in their community and to report any concerns to police.
Top tips to prevent a quad bike from being stolen:
Immobilise - Make sure you secure or immobilise your quads when not in use. Remember to remove keys when leaving them unattended.
Location - Try to avoid leaving quads unattended in fields especially near to roads. If you have to leave them, then try and park behind other machinery, equipment and out of sight.
Security - When you’re finished for the day, lock quads away in your most secure outbuilding or garage. If this isn’t possible, ensure it’s behind a locked gate to make things more difficult for thieves.
Track and Trace - Keep a record of any chassis or serial numbers. If the worst happens the more information you can provide, the better the chance of recovery. Consider using security marking kits to mark your property, and think about fitting a tracker or immobiliser.
Register Online - Websites such as www.immobilise.com and www.ter-europe.org are useful international online databases to record serial numbers for a wide range of vehicles and property.
For further information or advice, contact police 101 and ask to speak with a member of the Rural Crime Team. If you see anything suspicious report it to the police.
