Guidance and support for the re-opening of parks and open spaces

Carmarthenshire County Council’s parks re-open from this Friday (June 12.) Below is a copy of the press statement we have released with information on the re-opening of Parc Howard, Llyn Llech Owain, Mynydd Mawr and Pembrey Country Park.

As many town and community councils are looking ahead and working towards the re-opening of facilities we are sharing our social distancing toolkit which may be of use to those looking at the re-opening parks, open spaces or public conveniences.

If you require any further support or guidance on signage please email us on marketingandmedia@carmarthenshire.gov.uk

Work underway to re-open schools

Preparations are underway to re-open schools across Carmarthenshire for children to ‘check in and catch up’ before the summer holidays.

Education Minister Kirsty Williams announced that schools could re-open from June 29 and that the summer term would be extended by a week.

The council has already been working hard to put plans in place for increasing the operation of county schools to enable more children to attend when the time is right to do so.
