Mr Craig Young – Mr “Solva” IRONMAN!

Craig competed in the IRONMAN Wales competition on Sunday 15 September, which began on Tenby’s North Beach, providing one of the most spectacular swim locations on the race circuit. Then followed challenging bike and running courses, while the athletes were treated to consistent and motivating inspiration from some of the
most vocal and enthusiastic spectators! Craig’s time was 15:45:24 putting him in 248/280 place and he helped raised £1100 for “Get the Boys A Lift” a not-for-profit organisation that works to raise mental health awareness among people who are “just about managing”, based in Haverfordwest. A fantastic effort from Craig for all those months of training!

Solva Fireworks Display

Friday 1 November (or in case of bad weather on Saturday 2 Nov).
The judging of the Guy competition will take place at 6.30 pm outside the Harbour Inn with the main firework display beginning at 7 pm. The event is free for all to attend and enjoy but its continuation relies on donations,
so if you see one of our volunteers with Hi-Vis jacket and official collecting bucket along the way please give anything you can – every penny matters. In case of bad weather a decision to cancel will be made before 4pm and announced on facebook.
Guy Competition – This year we’ll be holding a Guy Competition along with the main fireworks event with a first prize £30, 2nd prize £20 and 3rd prize £10. This is a free to enter competition aimed at children (limit of 1 entry per child). The guy should be built of clean, dry materials such as paper, straw etc and brought by the child and supervising adult to the front of the Harbour Inn before 6.15pm on the day, with judging starting at 6.30 pm. No specific theme has been set but it might be wise to avoid anything rude or politically charged. Rules & Regs: any guy unsuitable due to design, construction or representation will be disqualified. The decision of the judges is final and all entrants are asked to take their guy with them after the judging has finished.

Solva WI

Ahead of our September meeting, a few members very much enjoyed a visit with lunch and a walk at the Cilgerran Wildlife Centre. Jilly Missen was thanked for such a well-organised outing and the rain certainly didn’t dampen our spirits!
Our meeting was held in the Hall as usual and, amongst items discussed, were various dates for PFWI events including the Annual Council Meeting on Saturday 23 November and a Miscellany Craft Day on Saturday 9th and Friday 15 November. It had been agreed that our monthly raffle would be for the patchwork quilt which was on show, it was made by Pembrokeshire members to raise funds in order to revamp the Pembrokeshire room at Denman College. Mary Haughton, our President, asked members to consider joining the committee to ensure continuation of Solva WI – the election happens at the Annual Meeting in November which starts at 1pm with a soup lunch.
The “Flower of the Month” was won by Vee Hopkins. After tea, we enjoyed a trio of “fun activities” including a quiz with answers starting with the letters WI, a Bug Bingo and a Dragon Drive.
The winner of the Jean Platt Trophy was Jenny Jones. Mary Haughton was thanked for providing such an entertaining “competition”. Our Christmas Dinner is booked for Thursday 5 December at the “Cambrian Inn” in lower Solva.
The next meeting is on Thursday 10 October when Tracy Olin will talk on the work of PATCH.
