Dafydd Llywelyn, Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, was guest speaker at a harvest supper organised by R.A.B.I’s Carmarthenshire committee at the café in the Carmarthen Livestock Centre, by kind permission of BJP Marts. Mr Llywelyn, a former lecturer in criminology at Aberystwyth University, gave an insight into his role which he took up in May 2016 to over 70 guests.
Linda Jones, R.A.B.I regional manager for Wales, said: “Many people from across the farming sector rely on us for help in these challenging times. Farmers don’t want favouritism, but agriculture is more than a job, it’s often a way of life. Anyone can get into difficulties through no fault of their own.”
Gwynne Williams, joint chairman of the Carmarthenshire committee, added: “I would like to thank BJP Marts for allowing us to hold our harvest supper at the Mart Café and to Gegin Fach y Wlad for the splendid buffet. Thank you also to my joint chair, Ivor Davies, for compering the evening and of course everyone who attended and donated generous prizes for the raffle and auction. It was a fabulous community evening, with people coming together to socialise in support of R.A.B.I in Carmarthenshire.”
The sum of £815 was raised on the night to aid farming families in Carmarthenshire.
