Get Jerky snacks fuel Jason to victory in Mid Wales rally

Published

on

AWARD-WINNING Get Jerky high protein snacks helped energise Mid Wales based driver Jason Pritchard to a fantastic Historic Category win at the hugely successful JDS Machinery Rali Ceredigion.

Builth Wells based Jason and his co-driver Phil Clarke were delighted to take first place in category and 14th place overall in their Ford Escort RS 1800 MKII, after two days of spectacular stages around Aberystwyth and across the Cambrian Mountains.

His sponsors include Get Jerky, a premium brand of Welsh Beef and venison jerky made by Trailhead Fine Food in Welshpool and Chartists 1770 at The Trewythen, a four star, 2 AA rosette restaurant with room in Llanidloes.

A big fan of Get Jerky, Jason said: “It’s the perfect snack for rally crews to have in our cars when we need an energy boost because it tastes good and is much healthier than eating chocolate.”

Gluten free and available in eight flavours – three of which are Great Taste award-winners – Get Jerky is a healthy, high protein snack for all ages, which provide an energy boost when you need it, especially when playing sports.

Success in the JDS Machinery Rali Ceredigion was the perfect build up to the RAC Rally from November 23-27, which will involve five full days of challenging forest rallying covering Wales, Scotland and England.

“We are entering only selective events this year as I want to put some mileage on our brand new car before the RAC Rally in November,” said Jason whose family owns the Toyota dealership, North Road Garage, Builth Wells, another key sponsor.

“We wouldn’t be able to enter these rallies without the support of our sponsors and it’s great to have the support of local businesses. Hopefully, our sponsors will have benefited from our success on the JDS Machinery Rali Ceredigion.”

Get Jerky is available to buy online at www.getjerky.wales or in farm shops and other quality food retailers across the UK.

Trailhead Fine Foods is the headline sponsor of the Get Jerky Rally North Wales based in Welshpool and the Get Jerky Devil’s Staircase ultra trail race, which is being held next Saturday, September 16 and also sponsor junior playing strips for COBRA Rugby Club, based in Meifod.

The company supports sports and events for young people and adults that benefit the Mid Wales tourism economy and encourage a healthy lifestyle, teamwork, leadership, competition and discipline.

10th anniversary of the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre

Published

on

PEMBROKE Dock Heritage Centre is celebrating its tenth anniversary. Since the museum was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 2014, the centre has gone from strength to strength.

Today the museum is a ‘go to’ for information on the military, maritime and social history of Pembroke Dock, an archive of specialist research knowledge on the role of the Sunderland flying boats, and a beacon for Star Wars fans.

The importance of the Heritage Centre will be celebrated on Saturday April 27th with an Open Day.

The museum will be free to enter, from 11am to 3pm.

The Heritage Centre was the culmination of many heritage initiatives and over the years so many volunteers have given their time, skills, energies and enthusiasm to these – from the Gun Tower Museum to the Flying Boat Interpretation Centre, the Fleet Surgeons House and now in the magnificent Royal Dockyard Chapel.

Those at the Heritage centre look forward to welcoming everyone, especial any former volunteers and family members of those involved in past years.
