Gwefan Canolfan Llwynihirion

I’ve been working with Sophie and Mark from Canolfan Llwynihirion in Brynberian to help them to set up their new website. The new hall in Brynberian is based in the old village school. It’s only recently been renovated and it is looking very nice indeed. The website itself has been set up in such a…

Pembrokeshire Wellbeing Podcasts

At the start of the year we started some discussions with Pembrokeshire Leisure to explore the possibility of the DATRIS Project hosting a series of podcasts on the subject of wellbeing. Well that has now started and the podcast episodes can be heard here, or you can subscribe to the show through iTunes or Spotify…

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. We even had a group of young people from Stepaside School to reenact the walk that their counterparts would have done in traveling to…

What a job I have! I’m helping a local history group to develop a short film about the River Cleddau … focusing in particular on the people who have lived in and around Llangwm. I am going to be working with the group to provide drone footage for the film. The film itself will involve…

A New IT System for HaverHub

It’s been a long process but the Old Post Office in the centre of Haverfordwest is nearing the end of its renovation and transformation into HaverHub. You can hear more about HaverHub’s story in my very first podcast almost a year ago to the day (it seems like much longer than that). Working with another project,…

Archaeology Day 2020

Every year Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority supported by PLANED host an Archaeology Day in early November at the Merlin Theatre in Pembrokeshire College. 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…

It’s Been a Secret …

… and it still is, to a certain extent. I’ve been working, through the DATRIS Project, with Amgueddfa Cymru – the National Museum of Wales for nearly two years now on the excavation and conservation of an Iron Age chariot found somewhere in Pembrokeshire. The museum initially contacted me because they wanted someone to coordinate…

Chromebooks in Communities

During lockdown I’m sure we have all experienced feelings of isolation, anxiety and low wellbeing. One thing that helps many people is to keep in touch with family and friends using technology … from mobile phones to social media and on to face-to-face sessions using zoom, houseparty or one of the other systems. However, lockdown can…

Even More Podcasts

I realise that the last post on here was in March … but there’s been a little change in the office since then and I have found myself to be spending the majority of my time recording and publishing podcasts. It’s something that I never thought I’d be doing but I’m really quite enjoying it. During…

Remote Podcasting

A few months ago I bought a portable sound recorder that I could take to groups and communities that weren’t able to get to the studio in the PLANED offices. On a recommendation I went for the Zoom H6 and, I must say, I don’t regret it at all. I can connect up to four…
