Community meal a success – with more on the menu

AM Rebecca Evans joined more than 100 people from across Gorseinon at a free community meal at St Catherine’s Church.

Organisers of the meal – who include local residents, representatives from the local council and local supermarkets, as well as members from local churches across Gorseinon – described the event as an overwhelming success.

Curate of St Catherine’s, Rev Dr Adrian Morgan, said: “The event was truly inspiring. It brought a whole community together. People of every age, background and ability shared a meal together. People who might otherwise never have met left the meal as friends. That is something to celebrate.

“None of this would have been possible without the help and support of some amazing people from across our community who have given of their time and talents in order to turn a dream into a reality. So I want to say a big thank you to everybody.”

Gower AM Rebecca Evans said: “Huge congratulations to everyone involved in making the community meal at St Catherine’s such an overwhelming success.”

Plans are already in place for another community meal next month, with most of the food having been donated already.
