Make Solva “Sparkle”

Thanks to all of you who are already planning your Advent windows. There is no limit to the number of windows so here is a reminder of the requirements.
○ The window needs to be visible from the road (can be upstairs).
○ The theme can be religious or festive.
○ Ideally the window will be lit from 5pm to 10pm each day.
○ The window will need to have a back light – may be on a timer.
○ Choose a date on which you would like to start to light your window (any between 1st & 24th Dec).
○ Make sure you incorporate that date into the design (as in an advent calendar – see above).
We would like many more houses to take part and as many children to be involved as possible. Please let Lena (07805 717556) or Carol Ann (07970 614233) know your details and date of choice so that we can make a map available to people who would like to do an Advent Trail of “SPARKLING SOLVA”.

Waste & Recycling issues

From County Councillor Mark Carter
As the local member I am keen to know how the new waste and recycling arrangements work in Solva and indeed throughout Pembrokeshire. Can I ask that, if anyone has any concerns with these new arrangements, they contact me on 07976 553912 or markmcarter19@gmail.com. If anyone has a concern that a neighbour or friend is having difficulties, please make contact. I am especially keen to hear from anyone who has not had the correct equipment delivered or indeed any information on properties that have received a blue box that shouldn’t have
done so. I would also welcome any feedback from residents who have had difficulties in contacting the Council for both matters relating to waste and also general matters.
Many thanks for your help, regards Mark Carter

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!

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,

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.

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.
