Grow Fresh 2021…..SUMMERHILL BUS SHELTER

Welcome back to Grow Fresh and hopefully another good year for flowers and home grown fruit and vegetables.

Share seeds, plants and any excess produce throughout the growing season, including home made chutneys and jams.

Clearly label anything you may leave on the shelves.

Check frequently to see what might be available.

It’s all free! No money involved.

Tell your friends and neighbours and encourage our children to take part.

We have permission to do this on the proviso that it is only garden seeds, plants and produce that is left in the shelter.

ENJOY!

Pembrokeshire County Council Leader, Councillor David Simpson, has provided a further coronavirus update for Friday, 26th March, as follows:

‘Hello everyone and welcome to my weekly update.

‘On Tuesday we marked the one year anniversary of the first UK lockdown.

‘It was a poignant moment and I’d like to once again extend my sympathies to everyone who has lost a loved one as a result of the pandemic.

‘It occurred to me this week that the total UK death toll has now reached over 126,000 – more than the total population of Pembrokeshire.

‘That really brings home the impact that coronavirus has had.

‘It has been a long road but thanks to everybody’s collective efforts the situation today is far, far improved.

‘That has been further evident today with the Welsh Government able to detail further changes to the Covid-19 measures.

‘Our officers are currently reviewing the details and what they mean for our services and in particular the tourism industry locally ahead of the Easter break, and we will provide further details over the coming week.

‘In the meantime the message remains to continue to do all those things that have become second nature by now – maintain social distancing, wash hands regularly and wear a mask when required, unless exempt.

Please ask yourselves some simple questions:

·         Am I doing the right things?·         Am I helping to fight this virus?

·         Can I do more to stop the virus spreading?

Remember:         Stay at home.        Work from home if you can.

·         Wash Your Hands regularly.        Wear a mask when required.·
