Volunteers have been urged to get their fingers green to help Saundersfoot bloom this year.

The seaside village has been selected as a finalist in the 2024 RHS Britain in Bloom Finals, in the 60th anniversary year of the UK’s biggest gardening competition.

County councillor for Saundersfoot’s south ward Cllr Williams has welcomed any assistance from volunteers to help get the village ready for judging which will take place over the summer, after he attended a meeting held at the Regency Hall to plan for the fact that the village will represent Wales in the ‘small coastal category’ in Britain in Bloom this year.

“One of the main aims of Britain in Bloom is to create long term environmental improvement with involvement from as wide a section of the community as possible,” explanined Cllr Williams.

“The August Flower Festival at St Issell’s is an excellent example of locals working together. I will say more about this in future reports but everyone is invited to become a volunteer to help our village.

“The Community Council has already pledged support and I hope Pembrokeshire County Council will also look favourably on Saundersfoot in Bloom’s application for an Enhancement grant,” he added.
