Waxing Pain is £500 Gain for Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre Volunteer

The pain was worth every penny - all £500 plus - as Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre Volunteer John Mitchell braved a chest waxing in full public view to raise funds for the centre.

John, who recently turned 70, endured the pain and raised well over £500. Family members and friends, including many members of the Volunteer Team, witnessed John’s fortitude as the waxing process was carried out, strip by strip, at the Centre by the expert hands of beautician Ally Doyle.

Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company present "Mother of the Sea Day" at Café Môr for Welsh Year of Legends

In keeping with this year’s theme for Wales, ‘The Year of Legends’ The Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company will be celebrating an inspiring woman who spent time studying seaweed in Wales. On the afternoon of Friday 14th April, it is ‘Mother of the Sea Day’ at Café Môr, Freshwater West.

In the early 1900’s the Japanese, known for their love of seaweed, were facing a crisis. Poor seaweed harvests year after year and little knowledge of what was causing the dwindling growth of their beloved sushi seaweed, ‘nori’, meant that they were facing losing seaweed from their diet.
