Marlais Walkover – 27th January We hope to have a great turnout for this day within the local community. We have already identified some fish passage opportunities however more may present themselves along with any other habitat and water quality issues. We would like to host a lunch during this event and make a good day out of it.
Sawdde Walkover – 3rd FebruaryThis will continue on previous walkovers in 2021, continuing along Sawdde and its tributaries. There has been a lot of fly-tipping already identified in our previous walkovers, so we will collect as we walk!
Llangadog Bran – 4th or 5th February (Depending on availability)We were unable to walk Llangadog Bran in 2021, so it will be great to get out on the banks of this tributary in 2022.
Fly-tipping bank side litter pick Llanwrda Dulais – 10th February We have identified some fly-tipping and build-up of trash along a tributary of Dulais. We would like to get a team together to tackle clearing some of this before it works its way downstream. We will supply safety equipment and a plan of action and disposal.
We will have more events and dates in March. TBC Once again, thank you for your continued support as Adoptees. It would be great to hear if there is anything you have noticed on your local rivers & streams over this winter.

All ages are most welcome, be it just to dip in for a ten minute link up, an hour’s chat or simply to say hello over a cuppa. If you know of someone new to the area who might value a chance to meet others living locally, please invite them along.
Thank you for your incredible patience over the past few months whilst we undertook design and planning work for your project area, followed by the subsequent submission to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) for funding approval.
We’re thrilled to announce that after much dialogue with DCMS we have received final funding approval and sign off for Llanwrda & Llandovery. 🎉🎉🎉
What happens now?
We wish we could say immediate connection, but alas what happens now is the actual hard work involved in connecting you with awesome gigabit full fibre ⛏️.
Funding confirmed means we’re now able to ramp up our local mobilisation and so you will begin to see more lovely folk from our sister companies, full fibre network builder ‘Telcom Infrastructure’ and civil engineering company ‘Pioneer Utilities’, over the coming weeks.
As mentioned the whole project is only made possible by accessing grant funding in the shape of Rural Gigabit Vouchers, a scheme run by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport. If you have already signed up by applying for a grant then the time has come to receive your long awaited voucher. In the next few weeks you should receive an email from DCMS asking you to approve your voucher, so please do look out for this and confirm your voucher request as directed in the email.
If you haven’t yet applied for your voucher simply head over towefibre.com/grantsand complete our short form to lock in your grant funding today!
