Great news for patients on Hywel Dda childrens wards –

Nolan Charity Fund recently presented iPads and DVD players to Bronglais, Glangwili and Withybush hospitals worth over £1,300.

The iPads and DVD players will make a huge difference to patient experience and will go towards making a stay in hospital as relaxing and comfortable as possible while keeping children amused during their illness.

The Nolan Charity Fund is a Welsh charity set up in 2015 by uPVC businessman Nolan Nicholas to work hand in hand for the benefit of worthy causes in Wales. Sarah Cleevely, Fundraising & Events Manager, Nolan Charity Fund, said: , “I was delighted to meet the staff on the new children’s ward at Withybush Hospital and to be able to present them with iPads and DVD players. I am pleased that the Nolan Charity Fund has been able to provide Hywel Dda Health Charities with this support and the children in its care. I hope the equipment we have donated will go some way in providing the children visiting Withybush, Bronglais and Glangwili hospitals with some comfort during their stay.”

Newgale – New Route?

Climate change and the A487

Storm damaged trees Brandybrook valley, Pembrokeshire
Storm damaged trees Brandybrook valley, inland from Newgale.

It’s not often that very strong winds and gales in St Brides Bay penetrate far into the Brandybrook valley, but the storms in late January 2014 were something different and we lost about a dozen trees on our patch at Roch Mill. As all locals know, with any serious storm there’s a fair chance that the A487 road will be closed across Newgale beach. So, with gales forecast, we were expecting a bit of extra traffic on our minor road at Roch Bridge. This C-class road doubles as the emergency “by-pass”, all 7km of it. The narrow twisty lanes are not well suited to heavy A-road traffic but once in a while, it’s liveable with. Mind you, I’m not so sure the hundreds of delayed travellers would agree.

Our first realisation that this had happened in a big way was when a bus started backing onto our driveway, along with a couple of other vehicles!
