Project Support from Abergwili Community

The Trust is delighted to announce the continued support by Abergwili Community Council for the restoration of the Bishops Park.

The Community Council have donated a further £2,000 towards the creation of a Community Engagement and Learning Officer post. Starting in September 2020 this post will encourage and develop a network of park users from across Carmarthenshire. The post will work with groups, clubs, societies and interest groups, as well as schools and colleges developing learning opportunities and creating activities to explore what makes the Bishops Park, the Old Bishops Palace and the Museum’s collections special.

Trust Chair, Betsan Caldwell, said “We are delighted that the Community Council is continuing to support our work to conserve and protect what makes the Bishops park special. The project, due to be completed in September 2021, will also create a café and learning space encouraging more people to come and explore the amazing history, ecology and horticulture here at the Bishops Park.

“There are already many members of the Abergwili community actively taking part in the park’s restoration as Trustees and volunteers, all helping to bring back the Bishops Park to its former glory and we hope that more will continue to get involved.”
