The Fairytale of Dr Mz
In 1997, the dream became reality. The name that was chosen by the young people Dr Mz. It commemorates the late Dr. Margaret Evans, a local G.P. and Councillor, whose vision, enthusiasm and selfless efforts inspired the project,
In 1997 over 100 people aged 11-25 in Carmarthen came through the doors. They met, they drank coffee, they went ice skating, they took part in the Christmas Carnival, they got support from staff, they cooked a Christmas dinner, they volunteered, they raised money, they became better members of society and they had fun!
Since then Dr. M’z has been a place for thousands of young people to participate in new activities including coasteering, canoeing, abseiling, activity holidaying, residentials, costume making, website designing, street-hockey playing, paintballing, quad-biking, go-karting.
While doing all this they have learned to be better friends, better team players, more skilled in speaking and listening, better members of the community, meeting people in high places and talking to them as equals and helping others.
I have had the privilege to meet these young people as I was there in 1997 too and I have seen many of them grow into responsible and lovely adults who say “Hi” to me in the street and come back from time to time to see us all. Some went to the army, some became parents, some went to university and others got jobs and came back to work for us. I hope that all of you who read this and who were a part of it are happy and enjoyed the Dr. M’z experience. I have. The end.
