Coast to Coast grabs gold at national award ceremony

Published

on

PEMBROKESHIRE COAST NATIONAL PARK AUTHORITY’S long-running visitor newspaper Coast to Coast was one of the gold winners at the recent CIPR Cymru Wales PRide Awards.

The free annual visitor newspaper picked up the award for Best Publication at an online ceremony hosted by broadcaster Jason Mohammad, having last won the award in 2014.

National Park Authority Communications and Marketing Manager Marie Edwards said: “We are delighted that Coast to Coast has been recognised once again alongside so many other great entries and winners from the private and public sectors.

“Hundreds of thousands of copies are picked up across Pembrokeshire and beyond each year, helping people to learn more about the National Park and enjoy their visit.

“We would like to thank all the readers, stockists and advertisers for their ongoing support as we prepare to publish the 40th edition in 2022.”

In assessing the Coast to Coast entry, the judges felt there was “a very clear brief for Coast to Coast, with well thought through targets. The entry demonstrated a strong alignment to the organisational goals as well as importantly, giving staff the opportunity to contribute.

“Ultimately this approach led to excellent metrics in the evaluation and fantastic feedback from customers, which the judges were particularly impressed with.”

National Park Authority Chairman Cllr Paul Harries added: “The team should be extremely proud to have won another gold at these prestigious awards, which follows on from an incredibly successful few years despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and emphasises the high calibre of officers we have working for the Authority.

“The team works tirelessly to promote the National Park and the Authority in so many different ways, including the ever popular Coast to Coast, which continues to go from strength to strength.”

It was held in the beautiful lounge at St Brides Spa Hotel who also donated all the coffee for the morning. Cakes were supplied by the community who baked some fabulous, tasty treats!

Saundersfoot Connect hosted a very successful Coffee Morning on Friday October 8th , raising a very impressive £1,070 for the cause.

It was held in the beautiful lounge at St Brides Spa Hotel who also donated all the coffee for the morning. Cakes were supplied by the community who baked some fabulous, tasty treats!

The raffle prizes were many and varied – lots donated by those who came along, and a huge number generously donated by local businesses. Over £500 of the total was raised on the raffle alone.

Organiser, Ladan Harper, said “We were blown away by the number of beautiful cakes that were brought along, and the many lovely prizes donated by guests and local businesses. We were very busy all morning, with over 100 people attending!”.

“It was so lovely to come out and meet people at an event” said one of the guests “it’s the first time I’ve done something this social in 18 months!

“I’ve just moved to the area, so it was great to be able to say ‘hello’ to some new friends and make connections with people I’ve only met online so far!” said another.

Many people commented how lovely it was to meet up and expressed an interest in maybe doing something like this more often. So, watch this space – a monthly Saundersfoot Coffee & Connect is on the cards!

People of Pembrokeshire encouraged to join jobs fair

Published

on

THE PEOPLE of Pembrokeshire are being encouraged to join Working Wales’ latest careers and jobs fair.

The free digital careers and jobs fair, called Your Career, Your Future, will run from 10am to 12pm on Thursday 21 October where people in Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire will be able to listen to live presentations about the main job growth sectors in their area, jobs in demand, live vacancies, future developments and have the opportunities to speak with local and national employers.

The event is brought by Working Wales (delivered by Careers Wales), the Department for Work and Pensions, the South West Regional Skills Partnership and other organisations and employers.

The session will explore:

  • Jobs
  • Apprenticeships
  • Education and training
  • Employment support
  • Volunteering

There will be a focus on certain sectors, including hospitality and tourism, transport and logistics, food and farming, construction, health and social care and more.

Wendy Williams, operational development manager in Haverfordwest, said: “This will be the third time that we’re running a digital careers and jobs fair, which is a vital service for job seekers in Pembrokeshire. Furlough was still available during our last series of events and now that the Job Retention Scheme has ended, even more people could be at risk of redundancy and we know job security remains a high priority for the people of Pembrokeshire.

“Not only is this event an opportunity to see what options are out there at the moment, but also understand the potential opportunities on the horizon and be informed of alternatives that may otherwise have not been considered.”

Speaking on behalf of the Regional Learning and Skills Partnership for South West Wales, manager Jane Lewis, said: “The pandemic has created a difficult landscape for both jobseekers and employers looking to recruit.

“The region is lucky to be home to a wide range of businesses operating across many different industries offering opportunities for all, therefore we would urge all individuals looking to pursue a different career path or those looking for employment to attend.”

Careers Wales centres are now back open for pre-booked face-to-face appointments and some centres are also offering drop-in sessions where appointments are not necessary. All centres operate safely and in compliance with COVID regulations, including social distancing, requirement of facemasks and regular sanitising stations.

Call 0800 028 4844 to book or visit Working Wales’ contact page for more ways to get in touch. A full list of centres can be found here.
