Pharmacists thank Swansea City Centre Rangers

A team of Swansea city centre key workers has thanked Swansea's City Centre Rangers for helping them deliver a vital service.


The Rangers, who help make the city centre safe and welcoming to shoppers and businesses, have arranged for Boots pharmacists to park in the Swansea Mobility Hire Car Park on Garden Street next to their Quadrant Shopping Centre store.

This means the key worker staff can continue to work efficiently during this difficult time.

Store assistant manager Helen Bamford said: "These spaces are invaluable to our workers to ensure the running of our store for our community as we continue to deal with prescribed medicines.

"I look forward to the day when this extra support from Swansea's city centre rangers is no longer required."

The nearest car park to Boots - the Quadrant multi-storey - is currently closed until further notice, as is the St David's city centre car park.

Other council car parks in Swansea city centre are currently free. This is in the interests of key workers and those who have to visit the city centre to do their shopping.

Robert Francis-Davies, the council's cabinet member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: "I applaud the Rangers and pharmacy for working together in this way; it's right that, at a time like this, the supply of essential medications should be eased in any way possible.

"Our City Centre Rangers are important to the success for our city centre - like other council staff, they're always here for Swansea."

The Rangers, who are currently on restricted duties as a result of the virus, are supported with funding from the Swansea Business Improvement District (BID).
