The new Community Rail Partnership for South West Wales wants to help promote the distinctiveness of local places by co-producing Welcome Banners with communities along the railway line. The intention is to produce the first of these in time for the spring, and to site the banners at train stations, to tell the story of what we love about our local towns, and highlight the hidden gems that exist in local places.
An idea emerging from our Shared Vision Meeting for Llanelli, this project seeks to use ‘words of kindness’ to strengthen the sense of community around Llanelli Train Station. Llanelli has been described as a small town with a big heart, and people want to celebrate these values as part of a shared identity for Llanelli.
Working with Incredible Edible Carmathenshire, we are talking to Network Rail about the disused land around Llanelli Train Station, to create a community garden and growing space that can serve as a hub for lots of lovely activity.
