Our street

Our Street
Our typical street is on a housing estate on the outskirts of a town in Hywel Dda.  It’s a quiet place, a few people have lived there since the mid-seventies but some are very new to the area. It’s a mixed street of single people, couples and families, living in houses and bungalows, most of which are about 50 years old although a couple of homes are relative new-builds.  Some people work in the town, a few commute to other areas.  A few people are looking for work or are in training and education, some others are retired.

It is a fairly quiet place, not on the main roads.  There is a nearby corner shop, a hairdresser and takeaway place.  There is a primary school about a mile away as well as a secondary school within 2 miles.  The nearest GP surgery is 3 miles away whilst dentists, opticians and pharmacies are in the nearest town centre which is just under 4 miles away.  The nearest hospital is 8 miles away and a larger hospital is about 20 miles away.  Most of our families have cars although a few do not drive and rely on the bus stop which is about a quarter of a mile away from the end of the street.

The street has over 30 residents, all impacted in different ways by the pandemic.  We now want to share their stories with you. Some people’s stories may have similarities to you and the way that you live in your street.

Whilst the Community Health Council doesn’t provide hands-on health care, and we don’t organise food deliveries or man the front desks in health care premises, we feel we have made differences to people like this and people like us.
