It is hoped that the success of a recent ‘cawl event’ held in Saundersfoot to mark St David’s Day will reboot what was once a popular fixture on the seaside community’s calendar.

March 1st saw ‘Cawl for a Cause’ held at the Hean Castle Inn, with the occasion that was organised by the local RNLI fundraising branch, well attended by residents who raised money in aid of the 200th anniversary of the lifesaving organisation.

“A fantastic amount of £832.72 was raised and special thanks to the Hean for providing free cawl for this event,” said county councillor for Saundersfoot’s south ward Cllr Chris Williams.

“Hopefully, this will be extended next year and the village can display Welsh flags from its many flagpoles. This was an excellent start to the month,” he added.

The Cawl Trail was a popular fixture on the events calender for the village for many years, before it took a hiatus during the pandemic, and was eventually scrapped last year, in light of organisers Saundersfoot Chamber for Tourism disbanding.

As well as attracting hundreds of people to various venues across the village, the event would also regularly see Welsh rugby stars amongst the invited guests to join in with the fun.
