A Winston Churchill Memorial Trust award is a boost for this young luthier from South West Wales.

Creating electric guitars from recycled or salvaged materials, George Parfitt is founder of Dockyard Guitars in Pembroke Dock.  The award will enable him to explore the cultural Cigar Box Guitar Movement in U.S.A.

I first met George Parfitt sitting cross-legged on the grass in front of his tent at the 2016, ‘Unearthed In A Field’ festival. He was surrounded by a range of his cigar box guitars.

I next saw George before he dashed of to Europe for a couple of months in autumn last year. Here, I catch up with him again with some of his backstory from that interview and exciting news of his forthcoming pilgrimmage to take in the Cigar Box Guitar revolution in America.

Pembrokeshire Fashion Designers deliver Christmas Fashion Show, Pembroke Town Hall, 10th December, 2016.

At the recent Christmas Fashion Show, staged in aid of The Paul Sartori Foundation home-care cancer support charity, we were captivated.

So much talent amongst the local Pembrokeshire fashion designers who gave generously of their time and shared that talent, displaying their wares… and ‘wears’, to attract a beautifully turned out, paying audience.

If you weren’t able to attend the evening, we’ll take you there. And, if you enjoy this article, please consider if you’d like to help Paul Sartori Foundation… the need for support is constant to enable them to do the fantastic work they do, so even a small donation is a big boost.

Motorcycling Pembrokeshire

Motorcycling Pembrokeshire video series

Coming soon… Motorcycling Pembrokeshire video series.

Pembrokeshire offers some fabulous roads to ride on. In fact, there’s a total of 1200 miles of riding pleasure in the county and most of it allows traffic free enjoyment of some fast, winding routes with good quality surfaces. If you are a competent rider, there are plenty of challenges to test your skills and provide plenty of thrills. There are straights that demand an open throttle, heading into big open vistas, coast roads that tempt the unwary to take too long a glance out to sea and descents into wooded valleys that will check the smoothness in your gear changes and your brakes.
