  • Get prepared for Census 2021

    Communities in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire will get extra support as the 2021 Census approaches

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has appointed a Census Engagement Manager to support Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire residents and help make Census 2021 a success.

    Nia Taylor, the area’s Census Engagement Manager, will help organisations, charities, faith groups and community leaders within the County to raise awareness of the census and the value to residents in taking part.

    The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that provides a snapshot of households in England and Wales, helping to plan and fund public services.

    Everyone across England and Wales will be asked to take part and the information people give will decide how services are planned and funded. Ultimately, it ensures funds are invested in emergency services, health care, school places and other vital services.

    Pete Benton, Director of Census and Survey Operations, said: “The census engagement managers and community advisers we have appointed have a critical role in making sure everyone understands why the census is important and making sure all households across England and Wales know why it is important to take part and how to get the help they need.”

    For the first time, the census will be run primarily online, making it easy for most people to complete the questionnaire on any device – whether that be a computer, a mobile phone or a tablet. Local Census support centres will be offering help, while paper questionnaires will be available for those who need them. All census staff will operate in line with the Government’s latest Covid-19 guidance.

    The 2021 Census will include a new question on veterans of the UK Armed Forces, as well as voluntary questions, for those aged 16 and over, on sexual orientation and gender identity.

    The census will be held on 21 March 2021. While results will be available the following year, all personal records will be locked away for 100 years and kept safe for future generations.

    For more information, visit census.gov.uk

  • Thanks to the Staff

    To thank the brave and hard-working staff at Glangwili Hospital for their dedication to caring for Covid-19 patients we have been donating food bags that have been kindly prepared for us by Maryellens 139 over the last few weeks. These were then delivered through the kindness and generosity of Feed The NHS Wales. The photos below show staff from Merlin and Tysul wards enjoying them during a well-earned break:

    We also wanted to thank staff elsewhere in the hospital who have been committed to caring for patients across all wards under very difficult circumstances. We therefore sent along some giant bean bags and deck chairs to help staff in the Physiotherapy Department to help them relax between shifts. We also sent over a supply of scrubs bags because we know how useful these are to help keep things clean. Below is a photo that staff kindly sent to us showing them enjoying our donations:

  • Obituary: Jim Davies

    Manordeilo & Salem Community Council would like to pay our respects to our former County and Community Councillor Jim Davies MBE who sadly passed away towards the end of last year. In so doing we would like to share the following obituary, originally published in Y Lloffwr magazine, which we feel kindly expresses the gratitude of the community for one of its most respected servants.

    Yn dilyn cystudd blin bu farw un o gymwynaswyr yr ardal J J Jim Davies, Manordeilo ar 12 Tachwedd yn 79 mlwydd oed. Yn enedigol o fferm Parcnewydd, Llanwrda bu’n amaethu am ddegawdau ar fferm Glanrhyd, Manordeilo tan ei ymddeoliad. Cofir amdano fel cynghorydd ar Fwrdeistref Dinefwr, yn Gyngor Sir Gaerfyrddin am ddeng mlynedd ar hugain ac yn gynghorydd cymuned ym Manordeilo a Salem. Roedd yn Ynad Heddwch am ugain mlynedd, bu’n Faer Bwrdeistref Dinefwr yn 1994/95 a derbyniodd yr MBE am ei wasanaeth clodwiw yn 2014. Roedd yn gymeriad addfwyn yn llawn hiwmor gyda diddordeb angerddol yn ei fro a’i phobol.

    Bu’r angladd ar 18 Tachwedd yn Amlosgfa Llanelli gyda gwasanaeth o ddiolchgarwch am ei fywyd i ddilyn yn Eglwys Sant Paul, Cwmifor lle talwyd teyrnged iddo gan ei ffrind gydol oes y Parchedig Roger Thomas, ei ferch hynaf Catherine a David Watkins ffrind arall. Cynorthwywyd yn yr oedfa gan y Parchedig Jeffrey Thomas gyda Mair Griffith yn cyfeilio wrth yr organ.

    Cydymdeimlir gyda’i briod Jill, y merched, Catherine, Carys a Rhian, yr wyron a’i frawd Tudor yn eu colled.

    Following a long illness one of the benefactors of the area, J J Jim Davies Manordeilo, died on 12 November at 79 years of age. A native of Parcnewydd Farm, Llanwrda, he was farming for decades on Glanrhyd Farm, Manordeilo until his retirement. He is remembered as a Councillor for Dinefwr Borough, for Carmarthenshire County Council for thirty years and as a community councillor in Manordeilo and Salem. He was a Justice of the Peace for twenty years, he was Mayor of the Dinefwr Borough in 1994/95 and received the MBE in 2014 for his commendable service in the community. He was a gentle, humorous character with a passionate interest in his locality and its people.

    The funeral took place on 18 November at Llanelli Crematorium with a service to give thanks for his life to follow at St Paul's Church, Cwmifor where tributes were paid by his lifelong friend the Reverend Roger Thomas, his eldest daughter Catherine and David Watkins another friend. The Reverend Jeffrey Thomas assisted at the service with Mair Griffith at the organ.

    We sympathised with his wife Jill, the girls, Catherine, Carys and Rhian, the grandsons and his brother Tudor in their sad loss.

  • Community Councillor's voluntary service recognised

    A Manordeilo & Salem Community Councillor was recognised for his outstanding voluntary contribution to the local community on Friday 3rd February when he was invited to attend the annual Carmarthenshire Sports Personality Awards at Theatr Ffwrnes in Llanelli.

    After being nominated for the Sports Volunteer of the Year Award by his fellow councillors, Councillor Alun Davies was shortlisted and invited to attend the awards ceremony, hosted by Radio Carmarthenshire presenter Jay Curtis.

    Although the award was ultimately given to Rebecca Caddell for her efforts in youth rugby coaching, Councillor Alun's own tireless coaching of Llandeilo Rugby Club juniors was honoured, including a fine tribute from County Councillor Joseph Davies.

    We would like to thank Councillor Alun for his continued dedication, service and time to our community, which we believe epitomises the charity and generosity for which our area is well known. Diolch yn fawr i chi.
