IT’S been a time of celebration for Pembrokeshire made all the brighter thanks to the appearance of the sun, but whatever the weather may bring, there is plenty to enjoy in the county.
Inside this edition of Pembrokeshire County Living magazine we meet a young shoe designer whose creations were most definitely made for cat-walking. We enjoy the opening day celebrations at Fishguard Folk Festival in the company of one of the town’s most famous names. The festival remains one of the most intimate and friendly music festivals around, with the added bonus that most of the concerts and events are free.
Reporter Amy Jones spends a day at the beach – foraging for food, and we catch up with some of the winners from this year’s Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards after a sparkling night of celebrations.
Roddy Milne, head gardener at Picton Castle, reveals some of the secrets of the beautiful gardens there and we also take a trip to the Really Wild Festival in its new home at the Bishop’s Palace, St Davids.
One of the biggest youth festivals in Europe came to Pembrokeshire this year with the arrival of the Urdd national eisteddfod. We joined 70,000 people on the Maes to discover young talent from across Wales.
We also shine a spotlight on Pembrokeshire’s busy amateur dramatic scene with news from the county’s one act play festival and national success. Plus there are some great picnic ideas to try and details of What’s On in the county this summer.
Here comes the sun!
