Cr­w­bin Sil­ver Band With the lead up to Christmas the band are ex­tremely busy. It is al­ways a hec­tic time of year with de­mand for the band’s ser­vices as high as ever. There have been carol evenings and ser­vices at Tum­ble Hall, Carmel Apos­tolic Church, Tum­ble and at Bancf­fos­fe­len and Cr­w­bin Hall with the pupils of Ys­gol Bancf­fos­fe­len. On De­cem­ber 8 at Pon­ty­berem Me­mo­rial Hall the band per­formed along­side Côr Lland­darog a’r Cylch and a choir from Ys­gol Pon­ty­berem at a grand con­cert or­gan­ised by the hall com­mit­tee in sup­port of the main artist Gruf­fudd Wyn from An­gle­sey, a Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent fi­nal­ist. The band, led by band pres­i­dent Ju­lian Jones, were proud to have been in­vited to this pres­ti­gious event and to re­ceive pos­i­tive feed­back on the per­for­mance. With the tra­di­tion of play­ing car­ols around the vil­lages of Bancf­fos­fe­len, Cr­w­bin, Pon­ty­berem and Llang­y­n­deyrn in full swing, the mem­bers would like to thank the com­mu­ni­ties for their loyal sup­port – it is grate­fully ap­pre­ci­ated. LLANELLI’S MP Nia Grif­fith joined res­i­dents in Ty­isha for a com­mu­nity skip day on Satur­day, which was or­gan­ised by lo­cal coun­cil­lors Suzy Curry and An­dre McPher­son.

Ms Grif­fith said: “Even in icy rain, peo­ple liv­ing in the Ty­isha ward of Llanelli filled the first skip with lots of bulky house­hold items in less than 45 min­utes.

“This is an im­por­tant op­tion for peo­ple with­out cars, so thanks to Ty­isha’s ex­cel­lent coun­cil­lors Suzy and An­dre for or­gan­is­ing the skip for lo­cal res­i­dents.

Ty­isha coun­cil­lor Suzy Curry said: “We filled two skips in just three hours thanks to the res­i­dents of Ty­isha who turned out in the most aw­ful of con­di­tions.

“It was great to be joined by our MP, Brian Mog­ford from Pride in your Patch and Dun­can McKenna, who runs the skip busi­ness, who were also a huge help on the day.”

The next skip col­lec­tion for Ty­isha res­i­dents will take place from 11am to 2pm on Satur­day, Jan­uary 26, in the park­ing area in Clos Sant Paul.
