I would like to say a very big thank you to FBM Holidays for supporting Pembrokeshire Fish Week 2011. Your continued support is a great help in raising the profile of the event with FBM Holidays on board. Thank you for your sponsorship for the Coarse Fishing Event, the new format of the competition was a real success, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable day for all those involved.
The public showed their support and came in their thousands on the Opening day and the weather just held off for us all day which always helps an event of this scale.
We have so far received excellent feedback from the attending public for the events programme put on throughout the week. The enthusiasm shown by so many of the participants involved makes all the hard work so worth while.
Pembrokeshire Fish Week is gaining momentum every year and is now fully established on the national festival calendar. We have recorded that there has been a further increase this year in enquiries from visitors out of county who are planning Pembrokeshire Fish Week either as their main or as part of their holiday itineraries. This is of tremendous benefit to the county on the shoulder season weeks. This years footfall counts revealed that just over 12,000 people attended the opening day alone which is an excellent achievement.
