Posted On : 11/08/2023

A range of free activities and competitions will be on offer at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority stand at the 2023 Pembrokeshire County Show, aiming to encourage people to learn more about the Park, it’s wildlife and how everyone can do their bit to tread lightly and boost biodiversity.

Located on the corner of Central and Main avenues, the Park Authority’s stand will have plenty to entertain and inform people of all ages whatever the weather, from stirring storytelling sessions and inspiring arts and crafts workshops to helpful information about the Pembrokeshire Coast.

National Park Authority Head of Marketing and Communications, Marie Parkin said:

“The Pembrokeshire County Show is one of the highlights of the local events calendar and we hope many members of the agricultural community and wider public will flock to see the very best of what the county has to offer.

“As well as the amazing storytelling and hands-on art activities, the Authority’s stand will feature plenty of opportunities to find out information about the National Park and how people can enjoy what it has to offer safely and sustainably. A warm welcome is extended to all.”
