Welcome to the website for residents of Carmarthenshire who are 50 and over.

Please Note

The Carmarthenshire 50+ forum annual event is nearly upon us, if you are trying to register online or phoning up for a registration pack, I’m afraid that the last member packs were distributed on Monday 10th to ensure that they arrived in time. Anyone that registered after Monday and would like to attend the event on Friday 14th September 2018 can join up on the registration desk at the front entrance to the gardens from 9.45am.

Apologies for this and hope to see you on the day.

Make sure that you sign up to the 50+ forum to join us on the day. Or you can sign up on the day to gain free access. See note above.
