The Queen was to visit Pembrokeshire to officially open the £30 million Gulf Oil Refinery at Waterston, near Milford Haven. She would be accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh.

Pembrokeshire delegates to the Fire Brigades Union annual conference at Blackpool put down a motion demanding a better pensions scheme and more holidays for firemen.

Knicker-bockers, bowlers, sombreros, rugby shirts and tri-coloured neckerchiefs, crowned by crazy-patterned parasols... that was the scene confronting drivers on the Tenby-Saundersfoot road when 117 young people - Army Cadets, Sea Scouts, schoolboys and girls, and a dozen members of Llanteg YFC - marched from Tenby Drill Hall to the New Inn, Amroth, in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Research Foundation Trust.

Sea Scout Stephen Blair presented an inscribed silver tray to Lieut. Col. George Witheridge, of Kilgetty, in tribute to his work as chairman of the South-East Pembrokeshire District Scout Council.

Showing at the South Beach: Chris Plummer, Romy Schneider, Trevor Howard, Gert Frobe, Yul Brynner in Triple Cross.
