THE new path at Newcastle Emlyn’s King George V Playing Fields is now complete; making it possible to travel all the way around the park without leaving the path.

Children on bikes and scooters, prams, pushchairs and wheelchairs can all use the path, even in wet weather.

A committee spokesperson said the works were funded by Wales and West Housing.

“Community volunteers, including WWH staff, also gave their time and worked for several days free of charge.

“A huge thank you to everybody who helped; thanks also to Barry Evans Metalwork and Melingoed for the donation of materials.

“The committee would also like to thank those local businesses and individual members of the community who have donated money towards ongoing maintenance costs of the park during the pandemic.”

The path was officially opened by Glenda Bowen, of Wales and West Housing.

“The last year has highlighted how important parks and green spaces are for people’s health and well-being,” she said.

“We hope that more families and individuals will now be able to use the park safely for play and exercise or simply to enjoy the outdoors.”

Committee chairman Peter O’Connell said: “It was great to see how members of our community came together to help with this project, without them this would not have been possible.

“If anybody reading this would like to help with future projects please get in touch via the Facebook: Newcastle Emlyn King George V Playing Fields or email

“Finally, I would like to thank Mark Frost, the previous chairman who led the committee when a great deal of additional equipment was added and the preparation for this project completed”.
