LLANELLI Assembly Member Lee Waters and Councillor Tina Higgins were pleased to visit and support Llanedi and District Friendship Circle recently.
The group offers older people from across the area the opportunity to meet and socialise in a friendly and welcoming environment. Having been established for around 18 months, they’ve gone from strength to strength and now have over 40 members. They also have a really strong record of fundraising for other good causes, and arranging trips to visit places of interest across Wales.
Lee Waters AM said
“It’s really important that groups like the Friendship Circle exist and are supported. People in rural communities can be particularly vulnerable to loneliness and isolation, so the opportunity to get together and chat is priceless.”
“The work that volunteers do to make sure this group, and others like it, can run deserves to be celebrated. If you’d like to meet a really friendly group of people head along on Friday mornings, and if you can offer any support I’m sure that would be welcomed too.”
Llanedi and District Friendship Circle meet every Friday at 10am in Tafarn-Y-Deri, Llanedi.
