Volunteers from Carmarthenshire have been helping to transform a young girl's garden to make it wheelchair accessible for her.
11-year-old Frances Watkins from Cwmgwili has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy and used to sit indoors, watching her family enjoy their garden as it was not suitable for her wheelchair.
Last week, a team of local volunteers from the Department of Work and Pensions and the charity WellChild helped to give the garden a special makeover so that Frances can now join her brothers and sisters in her garden.
A woman from Carmarthenshire is campaigning to raise awareness of 'Slapped Cheek Syndrome', a virus that usually affects young children.
Dwynwen Davies, from Llanybydder, lost one of her babies to the condition, and now wants to warn other pregnant mums of the dangers it can pose.
She wants local health boards to provide more information about the virus and offer a specific blood test which could possibly have saved her baby's life.
Children with the illness, which presents itself as a red rash on the face, usually recover from the cold-like symptoms in a few days, but it can be deadly to unborn babies.
Dwynwen has set up a petition online, where you can find more information on her campaign.
A police investigation into the handling of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire county councils' handling of tax payers money has found "no evidence of criminal offences."
Gloucestershire Constabulary launched an investigation into the two councils in February after the publication of three Wales Audit Office reports that found that the two councils had acted unlawfully.
Gloucestershire Constabulary have now completed their enquiries and have confirmed that following an objective and independent analysis of the evidence, they did not find any evidence to suggest that any criminal offences had taken place. On the basis of this, the police will be taking no further action in relation to these mattes. Both local authorities have been advised of this decision.
The matter was referred to Gloucestershire Constabulary due to the close working relationship between Dyfed-Powys Police and both local authorities involved.

Five new cases of salmonella have been reported to Public Health Wales, following an outbreak last month.
Public Health Wales says there are now 17 cases, with nine confirmed as being linked to the outbreak, in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire, Rhondda Cynon Taf and the Vale of Glamorgan.
A study has confirmed a strong association with laverbread probably produced between 5th and 8th March.
Public Health Wales says samples taken from Penclawdd's factory in Swansea have not shown any evidence of salmonella.
Public Health Wales says it is working with the Food Standards Agency and environmental health officers from Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire to investigate the outbreak.
We know that the majority of cases have eaten laverbread produced by Penclawdd. The company has cooperated fully with our investigations and has chosen to voluntarily withdraw the product from sale as a precaution.
Laverbread is generally a safe product to eat, and it remains unclear whether it is indeed the source of this outbreak.
However, given that we cannot rule out laverbread at present, it is very important that, to avoid the risk of illness, anyone with this product at home does not eat it.
Anyone who is concerned about their health should contact their GP or call NHS Direct 0845 4647.
Public Health Wales is investigating an outbreak of salmonella in the Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire areas.
A total of 12 adults have been effected by the outbreak, 10 of whom had reported eating laverbread in the days before they became unwell. Three people were hospitalised, but have since been discharged.
Local company Penclawdd Shellfish Processing Ltd has voluntarily withdrawn its laverbread from sale.
Public Health Wales is recommending that anyone who has any laverbread at home that may have been produced by Penclawdd throws it away and does not eat it.
Police in Mid and West Wales have warned the public not to approach a massive golden eagle that has been spotted in the hills of Carmarthenshire.
