A CARMARTHEN social centre for adults with learning and physical disabilities has marked a very special anniversary.
Johnstown Centre has just celebrated its 30th birthday, and threw a party to mark the achievement.
The centre, purpose built in 1981, provides a day venue for over 20 adults.
Supported by a team of dedicated staff, service users socialise, interact and learn using the centre’s craft, music, sensory and IT rooms – each of which house specialist equipment.
Director of Social Care, Health and Housing, Bruce McLernon; Head of Mental Health and Learning Disabilities, Gareth John; Executive Board Member for Health and Social Care, Cllr Pat Jones, and Deputy Council Leader Cllr Kevin Madge attended the bash – as did Scarlets players Steven Jones and Ken Owens who made surprise guest appearances.
Cllr Jones said: “We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, and were so pleased to see service users and staff enjoying the facilities and to see their sense of pride in what is such a fantastic facility.”
