Launched on St David's Day 2004, the society's main aim is to consolidate the work of local historians in preserving historic buildings and structures and to promote the community's rich heritage.
Through its work the society aims to enhance community awareness and identity and encourage civic pride by bringing history to the local communities as well as promoting lifelong learning, recreation, leisure and tourism. Since its inception it has succeeded in setting up many Interpretive Panels and Blue Plaques and commemorating famous buildings and celebrities.
The society supplements this work by producing framed interpretive panel proofs, DVDs, leaflets and booklets for use by schools, local organisations and individuals, holding lectures and social evenings and producing early history models on display at Llanelli's Parc Howard Museum.
This work is by no means complete and Llanelli will have more panels and blue plaques in future.
