4 May 2017: Walk around Monk Haven

Event: ‘Ancient and Modern’ – A walk from Monk Haven

Details: This is the first of two events in May to celebrate National Walking Month. A circular walk starting at the church in Monk Haven and taking in the coastal path round to Sandy Haven and a slow meander back to St Ishmael’s. About 6 miles but there is an opportunity to do only three for those who wish. Afternoon tea can be enjoyed in St Ishmael’s Garden Centre on completion. Good sturdy footwear recommended.

Timings and Meeting Point: Meet at 10:30 at Monk Haven Church (Grid Ref: SM8302 0675). Should complete no later than 15:00.

Info Needed From You: None (no need to book), but bring a picnic with you.

Lead Organiser: Margaret Sandland (telephone: 01437 731163)

24 June 2017: Tour of St Davids Lifeboat Station and Whitesands Walk

Event: A morning tour of St Justinian’s Lifeboat Station and an afternoon circular walk from the lifeboat station around to Whitesands Bay.

Details: This promises to be a really interesting day. In the morning, you can hear about the workings of the new and old lifeboat stations and the first-hand experiences of the lifeboat crew. And in the afternoon, we will walk from the lifeboat station round to Whitesands Bay and back to the car park – about 5 miles but with an opportunity to do less for those who wish. The exact route will follow in due course.

Timings and Meeting Point: St Justinian’s Lifeboat Station at 10:00. There is a Pay and Display car park about 400 yards before the lifeboat station and only very limited car parking at the site itself. Postcode: SA62 6PY.

Info from you: You MUST BOOK to attend this event because there is a maximum of 30 for the lifeboat station visit, and places are going fast. Let Steve Drinkwater know as soon as possible. Bring a picnic and we will stop somewhere during the walk. There is also a café at the Whitesands Bay car park.

Lead Organiser: Steve Drinkwater (telephone number: 01437 710009)

20 May 2017: St Davids Walk and Bishop’s Palace

Event: ‘Pembrokeshire in May’ – A walk from St Davids to be led by Ian Bullock, RSPB.

Details: A walk from St Davids out to Pen-dal-Aderyn (Treginnis) and round to the Lifeboat Station at St.Justinians (and probably back to town in the Coastal Shuttle bus).

After a break for lunch, somewhere, we have arranged for a tour of the Bishop’s Palace commencing at 14:30.

Finer details will be sent in early May but expect to start the morning walk at about 10:00. Good sturdy footwear recommended.
