It is an honour to serve the community as your town mayor for 2023 - 2024. Thank you to the outgoing mayor for your service and I hope to build on the successes of your year. Kidwelly has recently been reported as being one of the top 5 places to live in the UK. It’s great that the town has been recognised for the wonderful place that is is.
Our community groups are the life and soul of what Kidwelly and Mynyddygarreg is. My view is that the council should be there to support and encourage these groups so our town can be even better for everyone.
I’m massively proud of the community and town council’s achievements in developing our parks and playgrounds over the past three years, with over £250,000 invested so far - and something that I’m keen to continue.
The cost of living crisis is a huge worry and the forthcoming year will be challenging for many in our community - with the rapidly increasing cost of energy and food prices being of particular concern. With this in mind I will not be holding a Mayor Making event this year, with moneys earmarked for this being redirected to our local food bank to support residents in the coming winter months instead.
We have a number of new councillors joining us this year, and it is wonderful to see so many people volunteering their time to support our community as councillors. I look forward to working with you all in the best interests of Kidwelly and Mynyddygarreg.
Councillor Carl Peters-Bond, Town Mayor
