Pembrokeshire Lantern Procession Saturday 29 October 2016

Join us to create ‘River of Lights 2016’, a celebration of Pembrokeshire’s County Town and its links with the rural communities that it serves.

Last year, over 600 people gathered on the riverside in Haverfordwest, their lit lanterns bobbing, in the shadows of the castle above, as an 11ft skeleton puppet emerged and made its way across the bridge to meet the crowds.

Annwyl Ddarllenydd

Gorymdaith Llusernau Sir Benfro Dydd Sadwrn 29 Hydref 2016

Ymunwch â ni i greu “Afon o Oleuadau 2016”, sef dathliad o Dref Sirol Sir Benfro a’i chysylltiadau â’r cymunedau gwledig y mae’n eu gwasanaethu.

Y llynedd, daeth dros 600 o bobl at ei gilydd ar lan yr afon yn Hwlffordd, a gwelwyd golau eu llusernau’n nofio ar y dŵr, yng nghysgod y castell uwchlaw, wrth i byped sgerbwd 11 troedfedd ymddangos a theithio ar draws y bont i gwrdd â’r dorf.

Leisure, Cultural and Tourism services proposal

Pembrokeshire County Council is proposing to deliver leisure, cultural and tourism services in a different way.
▪ Leisure services include leisure centres, swimming pools, synthetic sports pitches, athletics track, indoor tennis centres and all the programmes delivered on / within these
▪ Cultural services include libraries, museums, archives, and the support we provide for the arts
▪ Tourism services are the tourism marketing support services we currently provide
Why are we proposing to deliver these services in a different way?
Between now and 2020 we estimate that we will need to reduce our spending by some £52.5 million. This is in addition to the millions that we have already saved in recent years. We are keen to find a way to operate these services more efficiently and to avoid the closure of facilities, wherever possible.
Five options have been identified for Culture and Leisure. Two options have been identified for Tourism.
Before any decision is made, it is very important that we have an understanding of the views of:
▪ Current service users and potential users
▪ Employees within our leisure, cultural and tourism services
▪ Other interested parties
This is YOUR opportunity to tell us what YOU think about each of the options. We'd also like to know if you have ideas about any other options that you would like to put forward.
Further information
1.    Public meetings
Further information will be available at a series of public meetings we are holding across the county over the next few weeks: 
http://www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/content.asp?nav=101,988&parent_directory_id=646&id=33856&Language=
2.    On our website
Further information, and an online response form, can also be found on our website:
http://www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/content.asp?nav=101,988&parent_directory_id=646&id=33853&Language=
The closing date for responses is Friday 16th September 2016. 

Cynnig gwasanaethau hamdden, diwylliannol a thwristiaeth
Mae Cyngor Sir Penfro yn cynnig darparu gwasanaethau hamdden, diwylliannol a thwristiaeth mewn ffordd wahanol.
▪ Mae gwasanaethau hamdden yn cynnwys canolfannau hamdden, pyllau nofio, caeau chwaraeon synthetig, traciau athletau, canolfannau tenis dan do ynghyd a’r rhaglenni a ddarperir gan y rhain.
▪ Mae gwasanaethau diwylliannol yn cynnwys llyfrgelloedd, amgueddfeydd, archifau a’r gefnogaeth a ddarperir gennym ar gyfer y celfyddydau
▪ Gwasanaethau twristiaeth yw’r gwasanaethau i gefnogi marchnata ar gyfer twristiaeth  ar hyn o bryd.
Pam ydym ni’n argymell i ddarparu’r gwasanaethau hyn mewn ffordd wahanol?
Rhwng nawr a 2020, rydym yn amcangyfrif y bydd angen i ni gwtogi ein gwariant o tua £52.5 miliwn. Mae hyn yn ychwanegol at y miliynau rydym eisoes wedi eu harbed yn ystod y blynyddoedd diwethaf. Yr ydym felly’n awyddus i ddod o hyd i ffyrdd o gyflawni’r gwasanaethau hyn yn fwy effeithlon ac osgoi cau cyfleusterau lle bo hynny’n bosib.
Mae pump dewis wedi cael eu hadnabod ar gyfer Diwylliant a Hamdden. Mae dau ddewis wedi cael eu hadnabod ar gyfer Twristiaeth.
Cyn ein bod yn gwneud unrhyw benderfyniad, mae’n bwysig ein bod yn gwybod barn:
▪ Defnyddwyr presennol o’r gwasanaethau a defnyddwyr potensial.
▪ Gweithwyr o fewn ein gwasanaethau hamdden, diwylliant a thwristiaeth.
▪ Cyrff eraill sydd â diddordeb.
Dyma eich cyfle CHI i leisio eich barn CHI ynglŷn â phob un o’r dewisiadau. Fe hoffem wybod hefyd os oes gennych chi unrhyw syniadau am unrhyw ddewisiadau eraill yr hoffech eu cyflwyno.
Rhagor o wybodaeth
1.    Cyfarfodydd cyhoeddus
Bydd mwy o wybodaeth ar gael mewn cyfres o gyfarfodydd cyhoeddus y byddwn yn eu cynnal ledled y sir dros yr wythnosau nesaf:

Well-being Survey

Public service providers across West Wales are working together to assess the state of well-being of local people and communities, now and for the future.

Many factors can influence the well-being of individuals and communities, such as economic, environmental and social factors.

It is really important for us to find out what YOU think affects your well-being, as well as that of those around you.

We would be grateful if you could share your views on well-being by taking some time to complete and return our survey.

Download Survey Here

We will also be working with groups in the local area to make sure we find out about the views of as wide a range of people as possible. If you would like to take part in one of these groups, you are asked to provide your contact details as part of the survey. If you do provide your contact details we will only use them for this purpose.

The information will be used to inform a Pembrokeshire Well-being Assessment, which will be used by local public service providers to put together a Well-being Plan for Pembrokeshire (by April 2018).

THE INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE IN SAUNDERSFOOT BAY DURING THE
1800s and early 1900s

WALK THE WALK


You may have noticed the picture of a boy from a long gone age as you walk
along the Strand in Saundersfoot or by the front in Amroth.
We have called him TOMOS, and he was one of the young boys growing up
in Saundersfoot Bay when it looked quite different from the way it is known
and enjoyed today.

Over the last two and a half years, the Saundersfoot Bay Heritage and
Regeneration Trust, have worked to revive the Bay’s local history and
heritage; initially focussing on the vast industrial wealth and development of
Saundersfoot and its Bay, created by the mining of COAL.
Coal seams can still be seen on the beaches, especially on the stretch
between Amroth and Wiseman’s Bridge. This precious commodity in its day,
was formed millions of years ago from forests which are now submerged by
the sea. The remains of these forests can still be seen at low tide on Amroth
beach.

The story of coal and its impact on Saundersfoot Bay is a fascinating and
interesting story. There are several projects planned in Saundersfoot to
promote and safeguard the area’s industrial past, and one way we have
begun to capture this particular period of history is through an INFORMATIVE
WALK which takes in the key sites (still very evident today). The long circular
Walk - BLACK route (about 9 miles), begins at Saundersfoot Harbour and
takes the walker on an interesting and varied route around the Bay. Our
character TOMOS, shows you the way, and helps to create a picture for you
of the Saundersfoot Bay as it was in his life time, in the late 1800’s. For those
of you preferring a shorter, easier walk, simply follow the GREEN route. (This
one is also accessible for wheelchairs or pushchairs.)

*We are planning a permanent exhibition to be housed at Colby Woodland
Garden (above the Bothy Tea-room), which will promote the history of Colby,
in particular the significant impact of the Coal Industry both at Colby and the
surrounding area. If you have any information /stories from grandparents or
family /artefacts or anything that you feel may be of interest that could be
included in the exhibition, we would love to hear from you.
Please contact:

email: tsbhrt@gmail.com or phone: 07966792752
For further information on the Walk, information and directions to download,
please contact:
