News: Llanelli MP Officially Opens Office for News Services
Llanelli-based news services Llanelli Online and Wales News Online, run and edited by Alan Evans, have opened a town-centre office at 1A John Street. Llanelli MP Nia Griffith, also the Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, performed the official opening on Monday October 7th.
The new office is opposite the closed premises of the Llanelli Star.
Gwynoro Jones, Labour MP for Carmarthen between 1970 and 1974, is working with Alan Evans to expand Welsh-language content on the news services.
Nia and Gwynoro both have professional backgrounds in education, and both worked as school inspectors for Estyn — in Nia’s case before she became an MP in 2005, and in Gwynoro’s, after serving as an MP.
Staff include Ron Cant, formerly of Carmarthenshire County Council, as associate editor, senior reporter Jo Elizabeth, and reporter Lucy Thomas. Delyth on 07935 454406 handles advertising, and Angharad Evans is in charge of administration.

Llanelli news is at llanellionline.news, and all-Wales news on walesnewsonline.com. Both are also on Facebook and Twitter.
West Wales News Review wishes every success to Llanelli Online and Wales News Online.
