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.”

Coastal, Felt and Driftwood Artist – Designs inspired by the sea

Over six months ago I spent a busy day at the Christmas Fair in Pembroke Castle and met many varied and talented stallholders (this is a great annual event and I would suggest putting it in your diary now!) One particular stall drew me back several times and I was captivated by the work of Sue Powell – she manages to somehow to really capture the natural beauty, colours and wildness of the West Wales coast. After chatting with Sue, we agreed to keep in touch and to arrange an interview in the summer.

We joined Sue at her home, and spent an enjoyable afternoon watching her at work and finding out more about her life as an artist in West Wales. When I had first seen her pictures at the Pembroke Castle event, I had not realised they are from felted wool and also had no idea of the labour-intensive work and skill that goes into each unique felted picture and her driftwood art.

Walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Feature image Freshwater West by Nigel J. Bevans

Featured image – Through the dunes at Freshwater West.

Audio – Coming soon – this blog will be available as Podcast…

It is midwinter in Wales and I’m standing on a deserted beach – and I’m completely naked and letting the warm December sun dry me off. Because I’ve just been swimming in the sea (which on a bright day like this doesn’t feel anywhere near as cold as you might fear) and because I neglected to bring a towel with me.

I should hasten to add that there is no one else on the sands at Porthmynawyd Bay, and in fact no one else probably for a mile or so in either direction along the coast. That’s why I couldn’t resist discarding my clothes for a quick impromptu dip…
