FFOWRM Llanelli Forum is a new community-based group comprising about 40 founder members. Its main objectives are to initiate, support and participate in grass-roots activities that benefit Llanelli and our community, either independently or in collaboration with other local associations. The Forum does not have any political party affiliation.
Mary Roll, chairman, outlined the future plans for this forum; she said: “Among our objectives, we plan to hold monthly events which will include debates on matters of current concern and presentations by invited speakers on topics of local interest. We will put community engagement at the heart of everything we do.”
A free, public event to present and launch the Forum will take place on Tuesday 17 July 2018 at Parc Y Scarlets, Phil Bennett Lounge.
The provisional programme is as follows:
2.30 p.m: Opening, including an address by a representative of Llanelli Rural Council
2.30 p.m – 5.30 p.m: Llanelli-based community groups and relevant associations will have promotion stalls and may make short presentations of their work, offering an opportunity for Forum members and visitors to become familiar with other groups with relevant specific objectives.
5.30 p.m. – 6.30 p.m: Press hour
6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m: Official presentation and launch
Speakers during the afternoon and evening will include: Neil McEvoy, AM Independent; John Jenkins, Llanelli Town Councillor Independent; Sean Rees, Llanelli Town Councillor Independent. Non party aligned representatives have been invited to speak.
