LLANELLI MP Nia Griffith joined residents in Tyisha for a community skip day on Saturday (Dec 15), which was organised by local councillors Suzy Curry and Andre McPherson.
Nia Griffith MP said: “Even in icy rain, people living in the Tyisha ward of Llanelli filled the first skip with lots of bulky household items in less than 45 minutes.
“This is an important option for people without cars, so thanks to Tyisha’s excellent councillors Suzy and Andre for organising the skip for local residents. Tyisha councillor Suzy Curry said:
“We filled two skips in just three hours thanks to the residents of Tyisha who turned out in the most awful of conditions.
“It was great to be joined by our local MP. Brian Mogford from Pride in your Patch and Duncan McKenna, who runs the skip business, were also a huge help on the day.”
Cllr Andre McPherson, who also represents Tyisha on Carmarthenshire County Council, said: “It was a great turn out yesterday on such a cold winters day, and I’d like to thank all those who helped.
“It is only through community cooperation will we will prevent fly tipping taking place. This is one of the initiatives that councillor Curry and I have implemented for local residents.”
The next skip collection for Tyisha residents will take place from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 26th January 2019 in the parking area near the flats in Clos Sant Paul.
