The Pembrokeshire representatives of a national environmental charity have scooped the 2014 National Park Local Hero Award in recognition of their continued efforts to protect the Pembrokeshire Coast’s oceans and beaches.

Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) were presented with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Award at the Radio Pembrokeshire Local Hero Awards on February 27th, following their tireless work to keep beaches clean and oceans safe, together with their drive to recruit more volunteers to help carry out this important work.

The Mosaic Cymru project is continuing to strengthen links between ethnic minority (BME) communities and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, according to a recent report.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Community Champions arranged a number of trips around the National Park.

At the National Park Authority’s February meeting, Members received an update from Pat Gregory, Mosaic Project Officer for the Campaign for National Parks, who revealed that increased recruitment and participation had made 2013 a successful year.

The Mosaic Cymru Project aims to cement long-term sustainable engagement between BME communities and National Parks in Wales. The project is led by the Campaign for National Parks (CNP), working in partnership with the three Welsh National Park Authorities and the Youth Hostels Association (YHA).

The Organisers of the British Eventing Baileys Horse Feeds Jumping and Style (JAS) series and Championships have announced this year’s winner of the Kenneth Clawson Memorial Cup.

The late Kenneth Clawson had a long-standing involvement in Eventing; the JAS series was his brainchild as he wanted to offer pre-season competition to Eventers. The trophy was introduced in remembrance of him in 2013 and to reward those who may have faced personal challenge or adversity during the JAS qualifying period.

As Climate Week (March 3rd-9th) approaches, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is highlighting its commitment to sustainability by outlining the dramatic fall in CO2 emissions at its headquarters over the last two years.

Recent improvements to the former officer’s mess building have resulted in a Display Energy Certificate rating of Band B, which is an exceptional rating for this type of building and well above the average.

The improvement from the high end of Band C in just two years is the result of significant work undertaken as part of the Authority’s ongoing ‘greening up’ programme.

National Park Authority Building Projects Officer Andrew Muskett said: “The recent Display Energy Certificate rating emphasises how much energy can be saved, even in a building which is more than a century old.

“The Authority will now be rolling out energy improvements to all its other buildings wherever possible in order to increase efficiency savings, decrease costs and work towards meeting Welsh Government targets for carbon emission reductions.”

Recent improvements to the Edwardian building include the installation of a new 100kw biomass pellet boiler in 2012 and the addition of 16 photovaltaic panels in March 2013. To date the panels have generated over 3450kwh of energy and saved almost 2000kg of CO2.
