Swansea Bay City Region ‘very excited’: Cllr Meryl Gravell

PLANS to regenerate Llanelli with a £60m Wellness and Wellbeing Village have been warmly received by Swansea Bay City Region board members.

The local authority, supported by the ARCH Programme, has plans to create a new state-of-the-art leisure centre housed on the Delta Lakes development, aimed at improving the wellness of the area through education, research, innovation and improved primary care services.

ARCH (A Regional Collaboration for Health) is a partnership made up of Hywel Dda and ABMU health boards and Swansea University who are working together to create a healthcare system fit for the 21st Century.

The ARCH ethos of improving the health and wealth of South West Wales has been a starting point for Carmarthenshire Council to build on the Delta Lakes project to create facilities which will include life science research, clinical trials programme expansion, as well as the possibility of occupational therapy, primary care medical services, day centre facilities and a hydrotherapy pool amongst other proposals.

The Llanelli Wellness and Wellbeing Village will become the West Wales hub for the expansion of the work of Swansea University’s Institute of Life Science (ILS). The ILS, a key element of the ARCH project, has already created more than 800 jobs, attracted circa £200m of investment, created over 40 new enterprises and supporting more than 270 others in the region. This pioneering work will now expand into the Hywel Dda area as part of ARCH with the Delta Lakes site providing a base for ILS@Hywel Dda

The Carmarthenshire Councilled Llanelli Wellness and Wellbeing Village project comes under the ARCH umbrella. Councillor Meryl Gravell, who is also the chair of the ARCH Wellness and Wellbeing working group, has said the ambitious Llanelli plans have been welcomed by the Swansea City Bay Region board.

The Swansea Bay City Region encompasses the four local authority areas of Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. It aims to bring together business, local government and a range of other partners, to work to a common goal of creating economic prosperity for the people who live and work the City Region.

Councillor Gravell, who sits on the City Region board, said: “The Llanelli project was warmly received at the latest City Region Board meeting last week. The visionary plans were discussed positively, and further meetings with potential investors will be going ahead over the next few weeks.

“The board is very excited by this new concept for Carmarthenshire. “This wellness village could be a life-changer for many people and will certainly make a difference not only to the whole ARCH region, but especially to Llanelli as it will create well-paid jobs and attract investment opportunities, as well as help keep our communities healthier.”

Hywel Dda University Health Board Executive Director of Commissioning, Therapies & Health Science Kathryn Davies and ARCH lead for the health board (pictured) told board members: “The Delta Lakes project has progressed at pace. Carmarthenshire Council is fully engaged with ARCH and our aims.

“This project is now far more than just a leisure centre in Llanelli.

“The site will provide ARCH with a West Wales base to develop the essential research component of ARCH, under the Institute of Life Science (ILS) work, and also expand our clinical trials programme into the Hywel Dda area.”

New Year – new start – for two seals released back into the wild

Avatar

Published

Two grey seal pups have been returned to the wild for the New Year following months of RSPCA rehabilitation.

They were released at Port Eynon, Gower, Swansea, on 3 January as the sun rose – just days into 2021 – by  RSPCA animal rescue officer Ellie West and RSPCA inspector Keith Hogben – who caught the beautiful event on camera. One seal had been originally rescued from Abereiddy in Pembrokeshire – the other from Trevone in Cornwall. They were both found in distress, underweight and with injuries.

Ellie said: “This was such a lovely release – to see them both enter the sea happily where they belong with the sun rising in the distance was just glorious. It was a lovely way to start the new year.”

The seals had been transferred to the Welsh coast from RSPCA Mallydams Wood Wildlife Centre in Hastings the previous day and had spent the night at the RSPCA Llys Nini Branch seal unit.

“These two pups – nicknamed BB8 and Luke Skywaker – have been in the fantastic care of RSPCA Mallydams Wood Wildlife Centre who have given them the best rehabilitation over the past few months. It’s always fantastic to hear when they have put on the appropriate weight and can be released back into the wild,” added Ellie.

Ellie had been involved in the initial care of the seal rescued from Abereiddy Beach back in October.

“He was a weaned pup that had pretty much moulted out all his baby white lanugo coat, so he was fully weaned, but he was found quite underweight, lethargic and had the snotty face of a sickly pup,” she said. “He also had a lump on the top of his neck.

“He was reported to myself and Keith and we asked Welsh Marine Life Rescue (WMLR) to attend who very kindly collected him and cared for him for a few days until we were able to transfer him to the wildlife centre.

“Once again we want to thank WMLR for all their assistance, expertise and all their hard work this past season. We could not do what we do without them.”

At RSPCA Mallydams Wood Wildlife Centre the seal had the lump removed under anaesthetic by the vet team.

The second seal from Cornwall came into RSPCA care in November and weighed just 16.3kg. The seal had suffered a few small wounds and was a bit wheezy, with centre staff treating him for lungworm and administering antibiotics. When he left the centre the seal – who was named Luke Skywalker – weighed a healthy 40kg.

Before release, the seals were given identification tags in their hind flippers for ID purposes. The RSPCA often receives good feedback from sightings – and the scientific results received reveal that seals that go on from rehabilitation survive in the wild.

The RSPCA advises that if members of the public spot a seal on a beach that they think might need help, the best thing is to observe them from a distance and do not approach them.

Seals are wild animals and have a nasty bite. Never try to return a seal to water yourself, as you may put yourselves and the seal at risk by doing this. It is also advised they keep dogs away from any seal and keep them on leads on beaches that have seal colonies too.

It’s not unusual for a seal pup to be alone, as seal mums leave their pups very early on in life. So if the seal pup looks fit and healthy and shows no signs of distress, it should firstly be monitored from a safe distance for 24 hours.

If you see a pup whose mother hasn’t returned within 24 hours, is on a busy public beach, or if you think the seal may be sick or injured, please stay at a safe distance and call the RSPCA’s advice and cruelty line on 0300 1234 999. An unhealthy seal pup looks thin (but not bony) with a visible neck, like a dog.

There is more information on the RSPCA website about what to do if you see a seal or pup on the beach alone.

If you have an animal welfare concern or find an animal in distress please call 0300 1234 999.

This winter, the RSPCA expects to rescue thousands of animals from neglect, cruelty and suffering. Already this Christmas we received more than 44,000 calls to our cruelty line but the calls to our rescue line are not stopping so neither will we. To help our rescue teams continue to reach the animals who desperately need us this winter, visit www.rspca.org.uk/xmas and Join the Winter Rescue #JoinTheRescue

Community Midwife home for Christmas after 85 day battle with COVID-19

Avatar

Published

on

SHARON GEGGUS, a community midwife from Llanelli is home for the holidays after a three month battle with coronavirus.
Sharon began to feel unwell in September, experiencing shortness of breath and a high temperature.
As these symptoms persisted and her condition began to worsen, she was admitted to Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli on 16 September, with a temperature of 41°C.During her stay, she credits the support of her family and the staff at Prince Philip Hospital for helping her get through the ordeal. Speaking of her experience in hospital, Sharon says: “I was sedated for about five weeks, but I was told that the staff were playing music for me. They had contacted my family to find out what my favourite songs were, and they would play those.
“It was really hard but the hardest times I didn’t really know about – my family were the people going through it. I can’t stress how well the staff looked after me. I used the iPads provided through the hospital to keep in contact with my family and the staff would also help me phone and communicate with my family.  
“The ITU staff and the staff on Ward 9 where I went for rehabilitation were amazing. I’m a community midwife myself and I would obviously treat someone how I wanted to be treated – but they really went above and beyond.
They would sit and chat with me when I was feeling down and they made sure I was in contact with my family all the time, even letting me hang up pictures of my family on my wall.”
Sharon was clapped out of the hospital on 10 December, 85 days after being admitted. Even though she is home, the road to recovery isn’t over.
She says: “There’s still a long way to go but I’m getting there. I can get around using a walking frame and only need oxygen when I’m really moving about. It’s so nice to be home, I think you just sort of relax a bit and move around more and just feel better for being back with your family.”
Reflecting on her experience, Sharon offered this advice to others with COVID-19: “Keep in touch with your family as much as you possibly can, it’s what got me through. I wouldn’t really know what else to say, just keep positive and keep in touch with your loved ones, that’s what really helps.”
