Beautiful creations: Just in time for Easter

THE TOWN of Milford Haven has been beautifully decorated with knitted spring-themed decorations.
Milford Haven Yarn Club worked hard toward their ‘Something Springy 2019’ project, which came to a head at the Haven this week.

The club went out on Tuesday (Apr 9) to begin attaching their beautiful knitted creations to lamp posts and railings, and by Sunday (Apr 14) their work was complete – and just in time for Easter!

Something Springy 2019: This year’s project is a success

With knitted hens and eggs, and anything related to spring, Milford Haven Yarn Club has brought the town to life for locals and visitors alike.

Speaking on their Facebook page, they said: “Thank you to everyone for another successful yarn bomb. To Milford Haven Town Council, Pembrokeshire County Council, Milford Haven Round Table, Value Independence CIC, The Trafalgar, and everyone who has donated yarn to us. My street ninja team, and ladies & gents of Milford Haven Yarn Club. Thank you.”

Tribute to Lola James, age 2, from Haverfordwest

Published

on

DAN THOMAS, the father of two-year-old Lola James from Haverfordwest, who sadly died in hospital on July 21, has paid tribute to his daughter.

He told the media: “From the very first time I met my beautiful daughter, Lola Patricia James, my heart was filled with such joy, a happiness I’d never felt before, an unconditional love and need to always protect her for the rest of her life.

“Not in a millions years did I think her life would be snatched away from her in such a cruel way.

“All the things she never had chance to learn, see or say, and all the things I will never have chance to teach her – to write her name, ride a bike or drive a car.

“Lola, you have left a hole in the hearts of everyone you met. Your sparkly eyes and beautiful smile will be missed always.

“I would like to thank every doctor, nurse and healthcare assistant that not only helped Lola, but threw everything they had at her to try and save her life.

“To the staff at Noah’s Ark, Cardiff, you truly were amazing.

“Rest in peace has never been so meaningful to me, but rest now Lola, whilst Daddy seeks the justice you deserve.”

Two people have been arrested in connection with the matter, and police are still investigating at Lola’s home address.

Milford Haven: ‘Unnerving droning sound’ coming from LNG tanker

Published

on

RESIDENTS of Milford Haven and Hakin have been complaining on social media about the noise coming from an LNG tanker berthed at the South Hook LNG terminal.

The Bu Samra arrived in Milford Haven at 10am on Tuesday (Aug 4) and there has been a noise, described as sounding like a distant droning helicopter, or low vibrating sound ever since.

The sound is caused by the reliquefication plant compressors on the 163,000-tonne vessel as she is waiting to offload her cargo of liquefied natural gas.

It is not the first time that there have been complaints. Eleven years ago, in 2009, official complaints were made to Pembrokeshire County Council over a similar vessel, the Tembrek.

At the time officials from South Hook LNG said: “South Hook would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the sound residents may have heard coming from the LNG Carrier since its berthing
“This is due only to this particular phase of the initial commissioning as she is keeping her cargo in a liquefied state.
“In the meantime, the Master… will do everything he can to minimise the impact of the sound on local residents.”

Local marine expert Berty Barrett said on Facebook: “All part of living alongside these oil and gas installations.”

Sianie Roberts, a Hakin resident, commented: “It’s really unnerving. Never heard anything like it before for so long a period.”

South Hook has been contacted for a comment.
