Nia’s swift action last summer led to the County Council  agreeing to shelve their plans  to close the town’s  paddling pools, but for one year only.

Then Nia organised public meetings to hear what local people wanted for Crown Park, People’s Park and Parc Howard.

Everyone wanted to keep the facilities and Cllr Carl   Lucas, leader of the Labour Group on Llanelli Town Council took up the challenge, and with the support of fellow Labour Councillors, persuaded the Town Council to fund the three pools – in Crown Park, Parc Howard and People’s Park for the next three years.

Nia said “I am delighted that the Town Councillors have found a way to fund  the pools for the next three years. They have listened to local residents. All we need now is some good weather so that children can enjoy the pools .”
