Tenby’s Mayor has praised two local organisations for the work they conduct for the community.

Speaking at the most recent meeting of Tenby Town Council, Mayor, Cllr Dai Morgan told his colleagues that he had recently been a guest of the Tenby and District Lions at their annual hand-over dinner.

“They do not shout about what they do but the amount of people they help is phenomenal,” he said, adding he hoped to engage them in a couple of joint ventures in the future.

The Mayor said he had also met with Ian and Rebecca Rees at The Old Chapel on Lower Frog Street.

Several community based initiatives are now established at the premises, including the WCFD (Wales Community Food Distribution) project, which sits alongside two other fantastic community food initiatives housed in the venue - the Community Fridge and a collection point for the food bank PATCH (Pembrokeshire Action to Combat Hardship).

“The work they do is remarkable,” continued Cllr Morgan, who was pleased to share that The Old Chapel will be this year’s ‘Mayor’s Charity’.

The Mayor also reminded members that his Civic Service is to take place on Sunday, July 30 at 4 pm at St Julian’s Church by the harbour, followed by refreshments at Tenby Sailing Club.
