An exhibition celebrating the Cleddau will show off a wonderful collection of artwork, photographs, poems and stories from children and young people across Pembrokeshire this month.

The exhibition titled ‘My River’ and hosted by The Cleddau Project will be held on Friday, June 28 between 4 and 6pm; and Saturday, June 19, from 10am to 4pm at Haverhub on Haverfordwest’s Quay Street.

Featured will be a collection of personal photographs which have been submitted to the exhibition. Also launched will be Fran Evans’ wonderful new map of the Cleddau.

The event will act as a celebration of the Cleddau expressed by local pupils and students through art which illustrates what the river means to them - with everything from fishing, boating, swimming, kayaking, walking, watching the wildlife, picnicking, sitting in the pub, working etc inspiring the collection.

The exhibition will also help the Cleddau Project campaigners raise awareness of our river and show the diversity of this wonderful estuary, freshwater and marine life, in all its complex glory!

The Cleddau Project was set up with the aim of shining a spotlight on this beautiful, diverse and extensive waterway whose good health is so vitally important for nature and for the people of Pembrokeshire.

Often referred to as Pembrokeshire’s hidden waterway, the estuary snakes some 16miles south, picking up the Carew and Cresswell rivers on its way to meet the sea at St Anne’s Head.

Working with local people, groups and organisations, The Cleddau Project wants to engender a deeper relationship with our river, encourage greater care for its waters and habitats, and build a sense of local ownership by developing and delivering positive, practical action on the ground.

The Cleddau Project aims to provide a coordinated, strategic approach to improving the Cleddau from source to sea, returning the tributaries, brooks, rivers and estuary to good health for the benefit of nature, the community and future generations.

Entry to the exhibition is free.
