Recovery continues with more services re-opening

53 days ago

Last week we re-opened our parks, including Pembrey Country Park, Parc Howard, Llyn Llech Owain and Mynydd Mawr.

This was another big step in our recovery from the pandemic and as we start to find a way back to some kind of normality.

I know that this was a decision many people were waiting for, and we saw lots of visitors over the weekend. I’m pleased to say though that people acted sensibly and we thank everyone for that.

We have also made more appointments available at our recycling centres, and opened up Wernddu in Ammanford for seven days a week. Again, I thank residents for acting responsibly and using our facilities with care. I’ve been so pleased to see the positive feedback we’ve received about the systems we have in place at our recycling centres.

As I mentioned last week, we continue to make great progress in our preparations for the return of pupils and staff to our schools from June 29.

And, as I said in my Leader’s report at our first online annual general meeting last week, our focus also remains on supporting our local economy.

Whilst we await further details and announcements from Welsh Government, we have been working hard to prepare for the return of more businesses and for the re-opening of more shops. A huge amount of support continues to be offered to businesses and town and community councils to ensure that we are ready to go whenever restrictions are lifted. I look forward to sharing more details with you in coming weeks.
