This list is subject to change. If any details of event changes, an updated list may not be sent out. Any changes will be posted on the facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/kwtcarms/

If you wish to join an event, it may be a good idea to contact Dan: daniel.snaith@keepwalestidy.cymru or Brian: KBMogford@carmarthenshire.gov.uk beforehand.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MEETING POINTS ON SOME OF THE MAP LINKS ARE WHERE THE ARROW / PIN IS POINTING, NOT POINT A.

You are welcome to stay for the duration of any event or any time you can give will be greatly received. For all day events (those that continue after 12pm), please bring lunch as we don’t provide this, and the work locations are often not near food outlets / shops.

If you arrive after the designated start time, please ring 07824 504805 or 07887 932066 when you arrive in case we have moved on to a different part of the site, or come and look for us.

End times are just a guide and events / work days may end earlier if the job is finished.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. For larger school type groups, we ask that a ratio of 1 staff member per 10 pupils is adhered to for proper supervision. Most events are open to all but where those state they are unsuitable for children, then that applies to anyone 16 and under. If it states unsuitable for young children, that applies to anyone 10 and under.

You are covered under Keep Wales Tidy / community group insurance while at these events.

Please dress sensibly to suit the weather conditions on the day. Suitable footwear should also be worn (not sandals / flip flops, formal shoes); safety boots are ideal, but anything fairly rugged will be acceptable.

For more information, contact Dan: daniel.snaith@keepwalestidy.cymru or phone 07824 504805, or Brian: KBMogford@carmarthenshire.gov.uk or phone 07887 932066.

Please feel free to circulate this list around your contacts.
