Training in Hermon

On a wet Wednesday in August I traveled up to Canolfan Hermon in the Preselis to help deliver a training session to community groups on how to make short videos. It was really good to be able to take part in an event in a village hall again, although we had to restrict numbers and…

Saundersfoot Bay Coal Industry Heritage Film

Before the first lockdown I started to work with a group of people in Saundersfoot to help them to create a film to promote the Saundersfoot Bay Hidden Heritage Coal Trail.

But, of course, the event couldn’t go ahead this year, well not in the same format. Stuart Berry, the Echoes of the Past project officer at PLANED and Tomos Jones, Pembrokeshire Coast…

The Priory Saltings Nature Reserve

Another excellent initiative from Haverfordwest Town Council is the renovation of the former town dump to the now, wonderful, Priory Saltings Nature Reserve. I took the drone and various cameras, gimbals and wireless microphones to interview Cllr Jon Collier at the site on a particularly damp and drizzly Friday afternoon. It’s just another example of…

Lower Prendergast Cemetery

It was on a wet Wednesday morning that I met Cllr Chris Evans from Haverfordwest Town Council in Lower Prendergast Cemetery to discuss the development of a community area within his ward. There are a number of exciting projects based around this deconsecrated churchyard that will support biodiversity within the town and, in turn, improve…

The Lantern Parade

Last week Span Arts organised another amazing event in Pembrokeshire. It was Halloween and a mixture of young and not so young people spent the day building lanterns. As soon as it was dark enough the parade began … … as you can see, it was a dark and stormy night. My colleagues braved the…

From the Coal House to Amroth

I have been working with the Saundersfoot Bay Heritage Trail group and I knew that I needed some footage showing the stretch of the trail running from the Coal House in Saundersfoot, through Wiseman’s Bridge and Coppit Hall along to Amroth. Well the weather wasn’t great but at least it wasn’t raining or blowing a…
