Lock up your gates!

From Heddlu Dyfed-Powys / Dyfed-Powys Police

We are seeing a significant increase in thefts of new farm gates in the last week. Can you check that your gates are secure and marked so they can’t be sold on.

Diolch / Thank you.

Amazon Gift Card scam.

An email scam is currently in circulation asking the email recipient to help a friend by buying an Amazon Gift Card for them. The email will appear to come from someone you know and say that they need to buy a Gift Card for someone and have failed so are asking for your help.

If you respond they will ask you to purchase a gift card locally then email them the code numbers so that they can spend the card.

This is an attempt to take your money so delete the email, do not reply to it.

Eglwys Mihangel Sant – St Michael’s Church, Cilycwm

 12th October 2020


To comply with Covid-19 restrictions we have had to keep St Michael’s Church locked except for the 10:30 ‘Service of Prayer and Praise’ held every Sunday.

To ensure Cilycwm residents and visitors had access to the grave-yard we left the Lychgate open, but now have had to lock it due to the unacceptable amount of dog fouling taking place.

We regret having to take this action but have no alternative as irresponsible dog owners have ignored our ‘Clean it up’ signs.

On behalf of:

Members of St Michael’s Church, Cilycwm

First Impressions employment project.

The First Impressions project is an exciting project which operates throughout the county of Carmarthenshire and aims to increase the employment prospects of NEET, economically inactive or long term unemployed individuals who are 16+ years old living in the area. 

There are two main elements to the project; firstly employability training and secondly paid work placements.  The employability training can include: –

·         First Aid Level 3 training

·         Employability training

·         Food Hygiene level 2 certificate

·         Various sector specific certificates

This training can be delivered either in person or electronically and adapted to the individual needs of each participant. 

Progression onto a paid work placement Is dependent on successful completion of employability training, commitment and attitude towards the programme and it’s staff.  These paid work placements will be tailored to the individuals career goals and are for a fixed period of 16 weeks which will be paid at minimum wage for a maximum 16hrs per week.

As a project we understand that the Covid-19 virus has had a major impact throughout the county and country as a whole.  As a result, we are particular keen to help those who are 25+ years old and find themselves struggling to secure employment due to the increase in job seekers and limited vacancies in the labour market.

Restoration of St Michael’s Church Lychgate and outer walls

In view of public health and safety concerns it has been necessary to completely board the sides and roof of the Lychgate in plywood and it requires an approved specialist contractor to restore it appropriately to meet its original Grade 1 status.

Thelma Stenning is organising a letter in support of a grant application and is inviting local people to add their names to it. If you would like Thelma to add your name please message us through the web site contact form and your name will be passed on to her.

The full text of the letter will be :

In view of public health and safety concerns it has been necessary to completely board the sides and roof of the Lychgate in plywood and it requires an approved specialist contractor to restore it appropriately to meet its original Grade 1 status.

A financial grant application to-match fund monies already held by St. Michael’s Church has been submitted to Carmarthenshire Welsh Church Fund in order to fund this specialist restoration work.

St Michael’s Church is located at a central point in the village of Cilycwm and with the only entrance via the Lychgate, its’ appearance currently detracts from the visual impact of the beauty of the Grade 1 listed Church.

As residents of Cilycwm and the surrounding district, we have indicated below our wish to confirm our support for this grant application to restore the Lychgate to its original structure.

Many thanks in anticipation of your support.

On behalf of members of St Michael’s Church, Cilycwm
