August 2010 A ‘first’ for Llanelli and Carmarthenshire!

on Tuesday, 3rd August, 2010

The FAN (Friends and Neighbours) Group held its first meeting in the county on Wednesday 28th July in Lakefield Hall, Llanelli. The new Llanelli FAN Group was set up in collaboration with the Llanelli Multicultural network (LMCN).

The first FAN Group was founded in 2003 in Cardiff and aims to bring together friends and neighbours for an hour a week over a cup of tea or coffee. The FAN Charity has been cited as an example of good practice by Welsh Assembly members with a special interest in social cohesion. The new LMCN Fan Group welcomes people from all ethnic backgrounds and any age. It’s a great way to meet new friends.

Project worker, Paolo Piana said ”We were so proud to host this first meeting in Carmarthenshire, and look forward to welcoming more people to this friendly group.”

For more details of future meetings please call LMCN Project workers Laura Hancock on 01554 785954 or Paolo Piana on 01554 785952
