A scene from the new promotional film

A NEW film promoting Pembrokeshire has proved a big hit on social media.

Made by Mother Goose Films for Visit Pembrokeshire – the County Councils tourism department – the short video uses real Pembrokeshire people acting as ambassadors to promote the county.

It features horse riders, dog walkers, fishermen, lifeboat crews and families living and working in – and enjoying – Pembrokeshire’s spectacular coastal scenery.

Since it was released across social media outlets last Friday, the two minute film has been viewed by almost 100,000 people and shared over 1,000 times.

“We’re really pleased with the enthusiastic response we’ve had so far,” said Councillor Keith Lewis, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economy and Tourism.

“Social media and the internet play a vital role in spreading the word about Pembrokeshire as a visitor destination. We would encourage people in Pembrokeshire to share it with friends and family wherever they might live.”

    Sadly this film was shot by a company that seems to have been flying without the necessary Civil Aviation Authority permissions. It always saddens me to see elected officials spending public money in commissioning illegal acts – it would be a shame if that’s what happened in this case, especially when there are so many excellent, safe, insured and legal operators available.

    @ Ant:
    How could you possibly know that? Would you have a vested interest , your own drone filming company maybe?

    Stunning video, if I wasn’t already here this would definitely make me want to visit, but what a bitter and twisted reaction from @ Ant A severe case of self interest no doubt.

    3 words spring to mind Ant, GET A LIFE!

    Typical rose tinted video… understandable EXCEPT that countryside is under serious threat from; rising pollution in the Haven (90% caused by agriculture according to a Government study), diminishing river water quality, diminishing biodiversity, the threat of a high C02 emitting biomass power station in the Haven , and the real prospect of Nitrate Vulnerable Zone designation for much of the County by 2017 due to excessive slurry spreading. Then of course there is the small matter of sea level rise and seasonal coastal flooding .

    If the County Council (and the Welsh Government) were committed to tourism as. Key economic ‘driver’ then it would take environmental issues and threats and its duty under the Wellbeing for Future Generations Act 2015 more seriously…. . I fear for the countryside.

    Does the video mention BPJ, Jamie adams, the grants scandals, the illegl salary increases, the Porsches, closing public loos, sacking whistle blowers who report a paedophile working with kids within the council , the court cases, the IPiGs etc etc ?

    Maybe when they do Pembs2 ?

    sea level rise ???? Check the actual figures and if there is a rise it is so small you’d never realise it in a lifetime
    Living by the coast all my life I have never seen a problem with increasing sea levels..

    This film is great and the fact you go on about aviation bla bla bla indicates you have too much time on your hands and you use that time to whinge like a old cynical man .. @ Ant:

Drop-in session plan for Fishguard and Goodwick surgeries

Published

on

A PUBLIC drop-in session is being held in Fishguard next week to gather the views of local residents around plans to amalgamate Goodwick Surgery with Fishguard Surgery towards the end of this year.

The event will be held on Tuesday 27 February at Fishguard Town Hall from 2.30pm-7pm.

Goodwick Surgery has been managed by Hywel Dda University Health Board since April 2015. The Practice has used regular GP locums to cover the Surgery for the past 18 months and despite extensive efforts the Health Board has not been successful in attracting new GPs. Goodwick is one of a number of smaller practices in North Pembrokeshire struggling with the challenges of GP recruitment in order to deliver sustainable services.

In recent months the Health Board has been in detailed discussions with nearby Fishguard Surgery as to how the two practices could collaborate to secure future services for patients in the area. The Health Board is working with local groups and the Community Health Council to communicate all changes to the patients.

Prior to the amalgamation, patients of both Practices should continue to access services as normal. There is no need to move registration – this will be done automatically at the time and more details will be shared with patients over the coming months.

Plans are at an advanced stage with Welsh Government for the extensive refurbishment of the existing Fishguard Health Centre later this year to enable delivery of high quality services to the increased practice population. Community staff, including the District Nurse team and Health Visitors, will be located in the refurbished building, allowing better integration and working with the GP Practice. Fishguard Surgery will remain open during the refurbishment works and disruption will be minimised to enable full services to be maintained for patients.

It is anticipated that the larger, more resilient Practice will be better able to recruit additional clinical staff, including GPs, to reduce the dependence on locums. Staff currently working at Goodwick Surgery will have the option to transfer to Fishguard Health Centre as part of the larger team.

Jill Paterson, Director of Primary Care at Hywel Dda, said: ““As a Health Board we are committed to listening to and engaging with local populations around our proposals to strengthen our Primary Care services in the Goodwick and Fishguard area and we would therefore like to invite residents to come along and get involved in the conversation.”
