Story telling is and has always been such an important part of the human condition. Most of us spend our lives trying hard to live our best story and, with the stories we tell ourselves and those we choose to share we endeavour to influence our worlds.

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.
