LEISURE attractions in Carmarthenshire have managed in the main to stay open though the bad weather.
Llanelli Leisure Centre has had to close at 7pm on Monday night because staff were unable to travel in because of poor road conditions.
Several courses run at leisure centres have also been curtailed because instructors and tutors have been unable to travel. But the centres have otherwise remained open and the message is for users to check before travelling because of different conditions about the county.
Theatres too have managed to beat the weather.
The Lyric, Carmarthen box office has remained open as usual for Tuesday 4.00pm - 8.00pm.
Theatr Elli, films Chronicles of Narnia and Mega Mind showing is showing tonight, Tuesday at 7.30pm
Ammanford Miner's Theatre closed as usual on Tuesdays but will open weather permitting on Wednesday.

Craft Centre, St Clears, open as usual.
The Boat House, Langharne is closed for Christmas.
County executive board member for leisure services Cllr Clive Scourfield praised leisure staff for their “herculean efforts.”
“This Christmas holiday season is a busy time for many of our attractions and parks when people like to get out and about.
“Country park and Millennium Coat Rangers particularly have worked hard to keep parks and trails open so that people can enjoy the winter wonderland experience.
“This year we have problems of ice and snow and those venturing out should exercise great care especially in the car parks which have not been priority for gritting.”
