October half-term week will be packed with exciting - and free - 'discovery days' in a new-style programme of activities organised by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority. These take place at Lydstep Beach Village and will be led by National Park ranger Kiri Howell. Her unique post is funded by the Park Authority and Bourne Leisure which operates caravan sites at Kiln Park, Tenby, and Penally Court, as well as the Lydstep site. Kiri will be holding 'drop-in' sessions and taking guided walks during the week. Themes will be 'Sea creatures and their lives' and 'Woodland wildlife' and there will be special activities each day. The programme at Lydstep runs from Monday, October 23 to Sunday, October 29. In addition, the ever-popular minibus excursion into the Castlemartin Army Range, by kind permission of the Commandant, will take place on Sunday 29th. This will be a minibus tour entitled 'Archaeology of Castlemartin Range' and places have to be booked via 01239 820912. It starts at Pembroke Tourist Information Centre.
