Carmarthen Town


Many of the shops and market stalls in Carmarthen Town display ‘Hapus i Helpu / Happy to Help’ posters in their windows, demonstrating their willingness to help anyone with a disability. A local charity also designed bilingual wallet-sized cards that individuals can use to identify their disability discretely at shop counters. Carmarthen Council has improved the high street aesthetic by allowing fledgling businesses to try out their ideas through pop-up shops in empty stores. Carmarthen Town is planning on taking its high street digital, by training ‘digital champions’ to help local businesses learn the skills needed to succeed in the digital economy.
