Bwcabus service in Carmarthenshire and South Cerdigion goes online



PASSENGERS using the award winning Bwcabus service in Carmarthenshire will soon be able to book their journeys online.

Carmarthenshire County Council has team up with Transport of Wales to launch the new fflecsi Bwcabus online app.

fflecsi Bwcabus will give people the choice to book and track their journeys on their mobile as well as booking over the telephone via a new call centre.

The popular bus service has been operating since 2009 and serves rural communities across North Carmarthenshire and South Ceredigion.

It operates with a mix of prebooked and fixed route journeys.

Single or return journeys can be booked up to 28 days in advance and up to an hour before travelling.

Passengers can also continue to use Bwcabus fixed route services.

Tailored to the needs of its passengers, journeys can be pre-booked allowing people to travel between local towns and villages within the zone or connect to the main line bus services to travel to places such as Aberystwyth, Carmarthen, Cardigan, Haverfordwest and Fishguard.

The fflecsi Bwcabus app can be downloaded for free from play store on Android or Iphone mobile phones.

Alternatively, the new Transport for Wales call centre is open from 6am to 11pm Monday to Saturday and 9am-7pm on a Sunday.

To book a journey call 0300 234 0300 – calls are charged at a local rate and free to call from mobiles or landlines with inclusive minutes/calls.

Carmarthenshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Hazel Evans said: “We’re delighted to be working with Transport for Wales on this new development. As we have seen over the last 12 years with Bwcabus, on demand transport has been extremely popular here and we believe this is a great opportunity to improve the public transport offer across the region and provide our residents with bus services that give more choice and flexibility on their journeys. I’m sure fflecsi Bwcabus will continue to be popular with passengers and we are delighted to be working with our partners to provide public transport services fit for today and the future.”

Bwcabus is a partnership between Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire county councils and has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.

St. Michaels School celebrates excellent A-Level results



St. Michael’s pupils with their A-Level results

ST. MICHAEL’S School, Llanelli, is extremely pleased to announce another year of successful A-Level results, with 80.2% of all grades awarded either an A* or A grade.

The vast majority of pupils have earned a place at their chosen university to study courses such as Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Economics.

This is the first year that traditional exams have resumed since the Covid-19 pandemic began with the majority of lessons in the first part of the A-Level being delivered online rather than in a classroom environment. This makes the results even more of an achievement considering the circumstances.

Headmaster Mr Benson Ferrari said: “We offer our sincere congratulations to our outgoing Year 13 class on the publication of their A-Level results, demonstrating that our pupils have worked so hard despite the challenges of returning to a conventional assessment approach.

“They approached the situation with resilience and dedication, which has resulted in grades that are truly representative of their ability.  I am confident that they will all go onto achieve great things at university and in their working lives.  

“We wish them the best as they move to this new and exciting stage of their education.  The preparation which St. Michael’s has provided will be built upon, along with our values and principles providing a lasting framework to tackle the challenges ahead.”

In 2020, St. Michael’s School was awarded The Sunday Times Welsh Independent School of the Decade and this was in part due to the excellent exam results that the school receives each year. 

St. Michael’s was also ranked 13th in The Times 2019 Co Ed League Table for UK Independent Schools, which was the last time that the results were published. The school hopes that this year’s results will continue to secure their place in the 2022 league table which will be published later this year.

Scheme to enhance the town of Tregaron for the National Eisteddfod



THE REGENERATING Rural Towns scheme run by the Cynnal y Cardi LEADER programme has been supporting Tregaron Town Council with a series of marketing techniques and installations to promote and enhance Tregaron in preparation for the historic and cultural event, the National Eisteddfod of Wales 2022.

This work acted as a legacy to the National Eisteddfod at Tregaron following the influx of thousands of people to the town daily for the duration of the festival and subsequently to the surrounding rural communities and local sites of interest.

A wide range of installations could be seen in Tregaron during the Eisteddfod following town branding design work, which included a giant deckchair, lamp post flags, banners, bunting, tiered flower planters, benches & picnic tables, monument conservation improvements, and a prominent Tregaron sign overlooking the ‘Maes’. Many of these features will remain in place for the summer months and can be utilised by the town in the future. Further town development work is due to commence to maintain and enhance the attractiveness and vibrancy of the town.
