Ammanford Neighbourhood Policing Team hosted a Multi Cultural event at the main Hall in the Amman Valley Comprehensive School on the 4th March 2012. The event drew a very large crowd of over 350 visitors. The event was held to attract people in our Communities from different backgrounds to try and include people from the 7 strands of Diversity.
One quote from a visitor '' This has been a long time coming''. '' I have never attended such an enjoyable successful event in this area and I am looking forward to the next one.''
The event attracted the United Nations volunteer group who visit and carry out community work, agricultural work and environmental work in our areas. The group consisted of students from across the world. Japan, Russia, Germany, Holland, Greece, France and many more. We also had a large congregation from the Thai and Pilipino community, Welsh language groups, elderly, children, the guides, the blind, various associations, various religious groups and also the Chinese and Indian Communities.
There was a range of entertainment and food sampling all donated free of charge available for the guests. The event also gave the public the opportunity to speak and get to know their representatives from the Neighbourhood Policing Team and give us their views on the areas they reside in.
The event was opened by the Lady Mayor of Ammanford Irena Hopkins and the audience was also addressed by MP Jonathan Edwards. Present at the event was Paulo Piano, Senior Development Officer from the Llanelli Multicultural Network Project.
