Thousands of tiny pieces of plastic washed up on Freshwater West beach this week.
Named ‘mermaid’s tears’, the plastic pellets are usually the result of industry and domestic waste, broken down by the waves. As well as littering the sand, these small pieces of plastic can be harmful to sealife.
The National Trust will be running beach cleans at Freshwater West on Sunday, January 14, and Wednesday, February 21, between noon and 2pm.
Red, the Welsh Border Collie, vanished while being walked in heavy snow on the Preseli Mountains on 28 December.
Her owners thought they would never see her again but, after a 10-day search, she was found by a stranger. Despite losing some weight, the 13-year-old dog is enjoying being back at home, her family has said.
“Loads of people came out to help. There were so many people we didn’t even know, and then a woman rang up and said she had found her,” said Caitlin.
The woman who found Red had seen the plea for help online and rang Caitlin. She said Red had been to see a vet and was given the all-clear, and that she had been “feasting like a king”.
THE future of Neyland Library was top of the agenda at a meeting on Monday night.
The public were invited to have their say on whether the library, which currently shares a building with the town’s customer services centre, should be rehomed at the town’s new Athletic Club development.
As part of its transformation programme, Pembrokeshire County Council is looking at whether some of its services could be moved to new locations, in order to free up buildings and save money.
The authority has ranked every town in Pembrokeshire according to its population and geography, and is looking to distribute resources according to this ranking.
Neyland has been declared a ‘tier 3’ town by the council, alongside towns such as Narberth, St Davids and Saundersfoot.
The model proposes that tier 3 towns do not require dedicated contact centres, and libraries should either be closed, substituted with ‘mobile provision’, or replaces with a ‘community-based option’.
Cllr Paul Miller said he supports the proposals, as they would ensure Neyland keeps its library, albeit in a new home.
“By allowing the council to build an extension at the club to house the library, we could tie the county council in to providing a library for the town for the next 25 years,” he said.
A county spokesman said: “The Neyland meeting was held on Monday, and options for rationalising buildings to meet reducing budgets were explored as part of this engagement and consultation approach.
“A follow-up meeting is planned where there will be an opportunity to look at the library and other issues in Neyland in more detail.”
Cabinet is expected to decide the fate of the library in its last meeting of the year, in time for when work is due to start on the Athletic Club in February.
