March 13th saw the first meeting of Carmarthen U3A’s Welsh group held at Yr Atom in King Street. The Manager, Angharad Harding, spoke to us about how we might progress as a mixed ability group saying she would be pleased to help us.
She outlined a programme whereby the group might meet at Yr Atom but go out for coffee, visit the library and the gallery and also go to shops to try out a few Welsh phrases in the real world. She suggested a very informal approach, learning the language that local people actually spoke and doing it in a social situation. It seemed a great idea; so we will meet again at 10am on Tuesday April 10th at Yr Atom. We have plenty of space for members to join the group. You can be an absolute beginner or a fluent Welsh speaker. Join us – I think we will all have fun!
A new Welsh Group is being set up by Carmarthen U3A following recent expressions of interest. The first meeting will be held at Yr Atom in King Street, Carmarthen on Tuesday 13th March starting at 10.30am. Group will be suitable for complete learners and those who have been learning for some time. All are welcome. Croeso i Bawb.

Report of the Carmarthen U3A “Trek” of the Carmarthen section of the Wales Coast Path.
In early 2014 the group decided to walk the Carmarthenshire section of the path as a project. This would be from Amroth to Lougher Bridge, a distance of approximately 70 miles. We agreed to do so on alternative months and try to keep the distance to about 5 miles for each walk. The leaders for this venture were Eric and Jenny Anscombe. With the exception of two sections we were able to use the local bus services.
Section 1 : “Amroth to Marros Church” We started the project on the 27th May 2017 from Amroth to St Lawrence Church, Marros. We visited the church and we were also given information on a “petrified forest’ which was visible at low tide.
