A COMMUNITY group in north Pembrokeshire which supports carers and former carers in the locality is the September winner of the Pride in Pembrokeshire Award.

The Llanrhian Camomile Club, formerly known as the Llanrhian Carers and Ex-Carers Group, were also presented with £200.

The award is sponsored by the Pembrokeshire Public Services Board (PSB) in partnership with the Western Telegraph.

Chairman of the board, Tegryn Jones, said they were impressed with the club's volunteer-led approach to meeting local need and their focus on addressing issues associated with rural isolation.

"It is clear that the group makes a substantial contribution to improving individual and community well-being in the area," he said.

Chairman, Gill Leese, said the Llanrhian Camomile Club aimed to support and improve the wellbeing of their members.

"We provide carers with the opportunity to unwind and relax, with therapists available for treatments, guest speakers, activities, outings, and useful information relating to all sorts of topics.

"It's about community spirit; getting to know new people in the area who are doing the same great job and sharing a relaxing time together," she said.

The Llanrhian Camomile Club welcomes new members. The group meets on the second Wednesday of each month at Llanrhian Hall from 1.30pm to 3pm.
