Facilities in Tenby for local people and visitors with disabilities continued to be enhanced as part of the Town Council’s ongoing ‘Accessible Tenby’ project.

This week Salty’s beach bar and restaurant situated alongside South Beach have agreed to facilitate a new beach wheelchair adapted for children.

The project has been made possible thanks to generous sponsorship from local organisations such as - Tenby Aces, Tenby Lions, the Rotary Club of Tenby, and Tenby Round Table; along with an Enhancing Pembrokeshire grant.

The town council’s continuing scheme (working alongside Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and Pembrokeshire County Council) has also seen the introduction of new wheelchair accessible picnic tables at the town’s harbour.

“We are delighted that Salty’s are looking after the second children’s beach wheelchair for Tenby,” said the town’s Mayor, Clr. Mrs. Sam Skyrme-Blackhall.

“We now have these for adults and children on both South and North beaches, with thanks also to Matthew Taylor of Joe’s Diner who as well as housing an adult wheelchair is also looking after the second child’s beach wheelchair.

“A further beach wheelchair is also available on Castle Beach from the Dennis Cafe.

“This is all part of our continued effort to increase accessibility in Tenby for our local community and visitors alike.

“Working with PCNPA, PCC’s access officer and local Tenby charities, we hope more adults and children will benefit from this,” she added.

The service is free and can be pre-booked by contacting: [email protected]
