Com­muity awards short­list is re­vealed

Llanelli Star - - FRONT PAGE -

THE short­list has been se­lected for the 2019 West Wales Com­mu­nity Awards.

All the win­ners will be an­nounced at our glit­ter­ing awards cer­e­mony on Fri­day, May 24, at Parc y Scar­lets, Llanelli, start­ing at 6.45pm.

The event prom­ises to be a cel­e­bra­tion of peo­ple who are con­sid­ered to have made a real dif­fer­ence to life in our com­mu­ni­ties or who have dis­played out­stand­ing courage, gen­eros­ity or kind­ness.

Judg­ing took place last week and our judges were: Jonathan Roberts, edi­tor of the Car­marthen Jour­nal and Llanelli Star; Jacky Jones, ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor from over­all spon­sor BMI Wern­dale Hospi­tal; and Delme Thomas, for­mer Llanelli, Wales and Li­ons rugby star.

Jacky Jones, from over­all spon­sor BMI Wern­dale, said: “It was a plea­sure to be on the judg­ing panel and in­spir­ing to read the nom­i­na­tions for each cat­e­gory, a truly dif­fi­cult task to choose win­ners from such a wor­thy field.”

And the nom­i­nees are...
