The newsletter has run for eight years (89 issues) and is a unique and
innovative approach to community engagement and interaction, not only on
our peninsula but countywide.
Due to increasing financial pressures on the Community Council, with an increase in their remit regarding maintenance, coupled with a conscious
decision to maintain youth provision within our community, SCC will likely have to cease the monthly publication of the newsletter.
Production costs run at around £5,000 per annum. SCC felt as a council that it would not be appropriate or financially prudent for them to increase the precept in order to maintain the newsletter, as they felt the financial burden would not be fair or equitable for local residents. This coupled with the loss of funds from the lower car park, the choice was either to continue youth provision or to maintain the newsletter. However, a number of opportunities are available to maintain it and the process of seeking out funding for such initiatives is under way. One problem is that funds for the current year
are already employed elsewhere. So, at best, if funding is found, it would not start till 2017.
SCC has already had a pledge from Solva Care to provide funding amounting to over £1,000 for the current year and they have no doubt there are many community groups and organisations that also recognise the value of the newsletter. It is hoped amongst the 60+ Businesses, 30+ organisations and 500+ distributions to raise funds to secure the newsletter’s viable future, not only for the coming year but as a sustainable means for the future, with perhaps larger memberships placing an annual donation. Please email Josh Phillips, Chair SCC for pledges and more information at and for donations please send to Bruce Payne, SCC Clerk, Simpson Hill Farm, Old Nolton Road, Simpson Cross, Haverfordwest SA62 6ET or contact him on on 07890 987259 email Thank you Josh Phillips, Chair SCC.
