On Friday 19th August at 8am a Hosepipe Ban came into force across the whole of Pembrokeshire. On the same day, the whole of southwest Wales was moved into drought status.
It is essential that residents ensure they do not use a hosepipe during the ban otherwise they may face prosecution. The ban is in place to try and preserve the water supply which is currently very low. This is evident from the extremely low water levels at Llysyfran and Rosebush reservoirs.
The Annual Hayscastle Pony and Horticultural Show took place on Saturday 13th August at Plaindealings fields. Despite the blue skies the entries were slightly down for some competitions. However, this didn’t stop competitors and spectators enjoying the day. A huge thank you to all the judges, stewards and volunteers who helped on the day. Here are some photos taken on the day.
On Sunday 5th June a BBQ and activities were held at the community centre and woodland to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee. Despite the weather, a large number of residents attended and participated in the activities provided by Hayscastle Community Forum.
There were a number of lovely puddings entered into the Pudding fit for a Queen competition which everyone was able to taste and enjoy. The winner was Helen Roberts with her strawberry cheesecake.
There was a very impressive display of memorabilia from previous jubilee celebrations. Thank you to everyone who brought items to be displayed.
