A road closure will be in place for part of Saundersfoot on Saturday afternoon, to allow for a charity and community celebration to take place.

Wogan Terrace from its junction with Frances Lane to its junction with High Street shall be closed to all vehicular traffic including pedal cycles on June 25, between 4 and 9 pm.

The Royal Oak have partnered with the Harbwr Bar & Kitchen, along with Foam to host the ultimate Platinum Jubilee celebration, working with Pembrokeshire County Council and licensing to put the event on and secure total road closure whilst the event takes place.

Other public houses have pledged their support and will be hosting live music before and after the event as well, with the The Captain’s Table starting the day off with a performance from Rockin’ Rod at 1 pm.

A purpose-built stage will be constructed on the road outside of The Royal Oak and live music will commence from 4 pm, with three-piece band from Cardiff The Twist taking to the stage first, followed by a performance from the one and only Daz.

Following fundraising and live music at The Royal Oak, the Chemist Inn will also have live music from 9 pm; whilst the celebrations will continue on Sunday with a performance from Butch at the Royal Oak from 2.30 pm.

Many charities and local organisations will be supported, including - Dementia UK, Saundersfoot branch for Cancer Research UK, Guide Dogs UK Saundersfoot and Tenby branch, Saundersfoot Sailing Club, Wiseman’s Bridge Rowing Club, Saundersfoot in Bloom and more.

Co-owner of The Royal Oak, Anne Alison, commented: “The weekend lineup looks absolutely fantastic and we’re hoping for a great turnout. It’s lovely to see an increase in community activity as the world starts to open back up again.”

Chris Williams, manager of The Royal Oak said: “It’s been a difficult few years, and it’s been especially tough for charities. The lifeblood of a charity is its fundraising and many have missed out due to the pandemic.

“We’re looking forward to hosting a community weekend celebration that everyone can be involved in.”

Under new management since March 2021, the co-owners of The Royal Oak pledged to spend the next few years raising as much money as possible for UK charities following the pandemic.

In August 2021, they hosted a fundraising weekend for Velindre Cancer Centre which raised £11,040, followed by a Macmillan Coffee Morning in October which raised £8,455.

The Jubilee charity event will be the biggest target yet, hoping to raise £20,000 across the weekend.
