Neyland has a new play facility that is likely to prove popular, the £50,000 cost of which was part-funded by the Welsh government and Pembrokeshire County Council.

The new Neyland Skatepark was opened at Brunel Quay last week, with the Mayor, councillors in attendance. Work started on March 7 and its opening, just nine days later, attracted a large number of young people eager to try out the new facility.

Mayor of Neyland, Dr. Simon Hancock, said:

“The opening of the Skatepark on Brunel Quay marks an important step forward in providing facilities for young people in Neyland.

“We are grateful for the support from Welsh Government’s Capital Play Fund and Pembrokeshire County Council. Their grants were supplemented by money from Neyland Town Council.

“The deputy mayor Councillor Lawlor and our own staff, Jane and Vanessa, ensured the town council were able to take advantage of the funding opportunities. I am sure the new skatepark will be very popular and well used for years to come.”
