Find the Fossils competition winner scoops £50 prize

A visit to the 2019 Pembrokeshire County Show proved lucrative for one eagle-eyed young visitor, who won £50 in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s Find the Fossils competition.

11-year old Laurie-Beth Addison was selected as the winner after finding all the skeletons hidden around the National Park Authority’s stand.

Tying in with the Welsh Government’s Year of Discovery theme, the competition aimed to open a window of discovery on Pembrokeshire’s past, and the rich variety of animal-life it has supported over the millennia.

A cheque of £50 was presented to Laurie-Beth by Cllr Paul Harries, Chair of the Park Authority, in a special ceremony at Castell Henllys Iron Age Village on Wednesday 28 August. After this, Laurie-Beth and her family were given the opportunity to enjoy the Authority-run attraction and experience life in the Iron Age for themselves.

Castell Henllys Visitor Services Manager, Delun Gibby said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Laurie-Beth and her family to Castell Henllys, the only Iron Age village in the UK, which has been reconstructed on the exact site our ancestors lived 2,000 years ago.”
