The building known as the ‘Bus Stop’ at the towns moor lower car park at Narberth is undergoing its final facelift, with valuable disabled access being fitted.

The premises is predominantly used by the Narberth Detachment of The Army Cadets, as well as an embroidery class, a Yoga group and several others that meet at the facility.

Last year members of Narberth & Whitland Rotary Club volunteered to refurbish the interior, and with the help of local businesses a new kitchen was fitted.

The two toilets received a major overhaul with new hygienic wall surfaces fitted, as well as new appliances with hot and cold water fittings supplied free of charge by NMG Heating Ltd.

At the end of the project it was realised that persons of limited mobility had no decent access to the interior.

They were faced with three very high steps and no handrails for supports.

Local architect and Rotarian Ken Morgan decided to ask two well-known local companies if they would be willing to help by providing a new disabled ramp access, and without hesitation they agreed. The result is now taking shape.

Plant Hire and Groundworks Contractor Hywel Griffiths employed his workforce including civil engineer Ed Walker to provide shuttering for the first phase level concrete access path.

His men then, in bitterly cold weather and a snow flurry this month laid ready mix concrete generously provided free of charge by Ian Harries and his two daughters Amy and Charlotte of A&C Aggregates Ltd.

The next phase will be two shape and fit sloping side shutters to retain the next load of concrete. This will then allow wheelchair users and persons of impaired mobility to enter the building easily and safely.

When all the work is completed, Narberth Town Councillor, Sue Rees and trustee of the ‘Bus Stop’ intend to invite all the Rotarians and their helpful suppliers to an open evening to celebrate the achievements and to thank all those who have so generously supplied their time or materials to this very useful asset for the community.
