THE public is being offered the chance give its opinion on developments to Oriel Myrddin Gallery, Carmarthen.

Carmarthenshire County Council is currently working with Oriel Myrddin Gallery on an application to Arts Council Wales for a Capital Lottery Funding which, if successful, will be used to refurbish and remodel the gallery.

This would include an extension into King Street, an upgraded gallery and increased gallery space.

The remodel will include an expanded multi-use education and creative activity space, community and artist studio spaces, a café and a shop.

To support the funding application a public consultation is being held at Oriel Myrddin Gallery from May 22-27 between 10am and 5pm.

An online feedback form is also available on the council’s website www.carmarthenshire.gov.wales or copies of the survey will be available at the gallery during the consultation.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
