ggA PEMBROKE computer shop was raided by a gang of hooded youths in the early hours of Monday morning, The Herald can reveal.

Gadget Geeks at 134 Main Street was attacked by five suspects, wearing masks, hoodies, and trainers at approximately 12:36am in a smash and grab raid which lasted for less than a minute.

Dramatic CCTV images, which were posted on Facebook by business owner James O’Connor showed the burglary unfolding on three separate cameras – one on the exterior of the building and two from inside.

Simon Hart MP told The Herald: “This crime is especially unpleasant and uncharacteristic of our county. Someone somewhere will know who these people are so I hope they do the right thing and tell the police who was responsible”

Marc Tierney, Labour Assembly Candidate for South Pembrokeshire said: “This is a shocking act of theft and criminal damage against a local business.

“It highlights the importance of CCTV in recording crime and how it should be used as a deterrent to others who may risk engaging in this activity.

“I hope members of the public will assist Police in identifying those responsible.”

The police are currently investigating. If you have any information please call 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi’s model train club appeals for donations

Published

on

THE YSGOL Penrhyn Dewi Model Train Club, is reaching out to the community for donations of old Hornby 00 gauge rail tracks and accessories. The club, which has been a staple of the school’s extracurricular activities, aims to enrich its collection and create more intricate and engaging layouts for its members.

In an appeal reminiscent of a bygone era, the school has issued a traditional wanted poster, urging those with unused or forgotten model railway items to consider contributing to the club. The poster, which features a vintage steam locomotive and a railway crossing sign, reads: “Wanted: Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi VA Model Train Club is looking for donations of any old Hornby 00 2 rail track or accessories no longer used or needed.”

The initiative, spearheaded by enthusiastic students, seeks to foster creativity and technical skills through the hobby of model railroading. The club members, dressed in their school blazers, are pictured eagerly overseeing their current collection, which, while cherished, is in need of expansion to accommodate their growing ambitions.

Donations can be left at the Dewi Campus reception or, if necessary, arrangements can be made for items to be collected. The poster concludes with a heartfelt “Diolch!”, expressing the club’s gratitude in advance.

This appeal not only highlights the club’s dedication to preserving a traditional pastime but also underscores the educational value such activities offer. Engaging in model railroading allows students to learn about engineering, history, and geography in a hands-on and enjoyable manner.

As the Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi VA Model Train Club looks to the community for support, it stands as a testament to the enduring charm and educational potential of model trains. The school hopes that with the generosity of the public, they can continue to inspire and educate the next generation of railway enthusiasts.

For those interested in contributing, further details can be found on the school’s website or by contacting the Dewi Campus directly.
