Do you have strong views on what Llanelli needs to boost the local economy? We would love to hear from you.
Could you make a contribution to support local independent journalism?
Just over a year ago we launched Llanelli Online because we believed there was a need for a totally independent local news site. Our journalism is free from commercial bias and not influenced by rich owners, politicians or shareholders. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to those less heard, challenge the powerful and hold them to account.
Your support enables us to continue with this work as well as helping young trainee journalists get valuable work experience. With your support we can continue bringing our independent journalism to you.
