Welcome to The Tiddly- Located in the heart of Pembrokeshire

Published

on

the tiddlyTHE Tiddly (Travellers Rest) is a quaint country pub located on a well travelled road connecting the surrounding major townships.

Nearby to several villages and being just three miles away from the centre of Haverfordwest, the well-known pub has a large amount of traffic passing on a daily basis, allowing for the potential to attract a great number of people.

Seating 40, The Tiddly serves moderately priced, freshly homemade food. Opening at 11am, both lunch and dinner are served daily. During the week, food that can be prepared and enjoyed in a short amount of time will be offered for lunch to cater to the working man and woman.

Afternoon tea is beautifully presented on a two or three tier stand to those wanting to spend their afternoon catching up with old friends. Local retirement homes will enjoy an afternoon out with custom-made menus for them to enjoy and live entertainment by the landlord and landlady.

The dinner menu features a modest amount of British classics accompanied by daily specials based on the time of year, demographics of the patrons and/or any ideas the chef has. Sunday lunches are a deliciously prepared carvery, with hot and cold buffet. Starters, mains and dessert are offered at a reasonable price.

Landlord and lady, Matthew and Angela Baker, have paid homage to The Tiddly’s country surrounding and historic background with large black and white photos of local landmarks, people and the local farming lifestyle.

The look inside is clean, simple, classic and a notch above the typical pub. It celebrates the beauty of Wales, its people and its countryside, with a modern twist.

Matthew Baker travelled around the world, working as a Cruise Director for both Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean. He has years of food and beverage, hospitality, customer service and entertainment experience.

Angela Baker graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance in 2008. She then worked for three years on the cruise ships where she met her Matt. She too has years of experience in the food industry, customer service and entertainment world. She is currently working as a certified keyboard teacher through the Yamaha School of Music in Haverfordwest at Musician’s World.

Matt and Angela have been performing as a husband and wife duo all around Pembrokeshire, Wales and the UK. Angela on sax and vocals, accompanied by Matt on harmonica and guitar, create a unique sound all their own and have attracted the attention of many.

With the intention of one day running their own establishment, the two started their own entertainment company called Baker’s Entertainment in February of 2013, building a respectable reputation for themselves around the county.

After playing in about 50 different pubs over the last year and a half, Matt and Angela feel it is the right time to use the knowledge they have gained over the years and start a pub of their own.

Matt and Angela would like to take this opportunity to thank all friends and family for their kind support. The Tiddly will offer everyone a very warm friendly welcome and hope they can keep the Tiddly’s name and reputation just as good as it once was.

What’s the plan now for Matt and Angie? Well, they definitely plan to keep things simple. What more do you need than great food, good beer, a cosy & warm welcome and a relaxing atmosphere?

Weekends will have live entertainment, not only by Matt and Angela, but with many of their contacts in the entertainment
industry, so make sure you keep checking their website for the latest news about the upcoming gigs you can look forward to at The Tiddly.

Health volunteers thanked for incredible support

Published

on

THERE’S no more fitting time than National Volunteering Week to say thank you to all of the volunteers within Hywel Dda University Health Board, management have said in a press release.

‘Volunteering for Health’ is the Hywel Dda UHB’s volunteer service and has covered the three counties of Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire for the past 11 years.

During this period, volunteers have carried out 376,000 hours of volunteering and in 2019 carried out 56,000 hours.

At the start of the year prior to COVID, 400 registered volunteers were providing a range of services to support patients and improve their experience whilst in hospitals, these include; library trolley service, shop trolley service, pharmacy runners, meet and greet, patient befrienders, gardeners and many other roles.

Lisa Gostling, Director of Workforce and OD said: “Volunteers are an integral part of our service and it’s hard to think that only seven months ago we celebrated the 10th anniversary of volunteering within Hywel Dda together at Bronwydd Hall.

“It’s important at this moment in time to recognise that some of our long standing volunteers can’t be with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to the organisation soon.

“And also to recognise those volunteers who have changed what they do to support our patients during these particularly difficult times.

“So I want to just say thank you. Thank you for your commitment, your generosity and your kindness. I look forward to seeing you all soon. Take care and stay safe.”

David Fretwell. Volunteering for Health Manager, added his thanks for the overwhelming response from volunteers old and new to an unprecedented situation: “This year has been unprecedented for the volunteer service with the onset of the COVID pandemic and has dramatically affected the way we have involved volunteers.

“We had an amazing response from the community wishing to help us through volunteering with over 600 offers of support.

“To help manage the numbers of people offering to help we set up a ‘Volunteer Pool’ and are extremely mindful where we can place volunteers for their safety.

“We have now deployed volunteers to support the health board’s transport department as drivers; we also have gardeners, virtual volunteers and drivers delivering food parcels from food banks to some of our most vulnerable patients in the community.

“We appreciate the fantastic support you have provided prior to COVID and through the pandemic. Thank you for your incredible support.”

A GROUP of people in an inflatable kayak had to be rescued by the Coastguard on Saturday (May 30) evening.

HM Coastguard Dale said they were “very lucky people”.

They had been exploring to the north of Skomer Island when they got caught in the tidal race of Jack Sound and ended up off Gateholm.

A passing Dale sailing vessel helped them to the Little and Broad Haven Lifeboat team before they were transferred to Angle RNLI to navigate Jack Sound.

The casualties were received by HM Coastguard Dale at Martin’s Haven and given safety advice.

The group had no lifejackets on and were not wearing wetsuits, despite the cold water.

Hart defends a tweet police boss says is incorrect

Published

on

WELSH Secretary Simon Hart has defended a tweet accused of being incorrect by a chief constable.

The MP for South Pembrokeshire and West Carmarthenshire told The Herald that he had simply been quoting Dyfed-Powys Police Chief Constable Mark Collins when he said people in Wales were allowed to travel up to 15 miles to exercise.

Mr Collins later said people should not drive to take exercise.

Hart told MPs he was “quite surprised” to hear Mr Collins’ response.

Welsh Government guidelines on lockdown restrictions say “exercise should be undertaken locally – as close as possible to the home”.

They continue: “In general this should not involve people driving to a location away from home for this purpose.”

Last Friday Mr Hart tweeted: “Fascinating to hear from Wales’ four police chiefs today, and the commissioners too, especially on what’s permissible under lockdown.

“Consensus was that travelling 10-15 miles from home to fish, play golf, surf or exercise is fine – subject to all other distancing requirements”.

However responding to questions from MPs on Thursday, Mr Hart said “the reference to 10 to 15 miles to travel to play golf or fish was actually Chief Constable Mark Collins’ own words – not mine – and not disputed by anybody on that call”.

He told the Welsh Affairs Select Committee that he was “quite surprised” to then hear that the comment he tweeted was “interpreted as being incorrect”.
