Charitable organisation Tenby Round Table have revealed that the chances of the popular Summer Spectacular events taking place this year are slim due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Normally taking place on Sundays from the end of July and throughout August the events - popular on the seaside resort’s holiday season calendar attract thousands of visitors and raise a wealth of funds for charities.

Sharing the hosting duties both Tenby Round Table and Tenby Rotary Club host two of the dates each at the beautiful setting of the harbour, with Tenby and District Lions staging a popular paella festival on the last bank holiday of the summer.

The events feature plenty of fun and entertainment for children, food and drink, and live music throughout, climaxing in a spectacular firework display.

A spokesperson for the Round Table said: “It’s hard for us to think of a summer in Tenby without thinking of our summer spectaculars in Tenby Harbour - but unfortunately as we get closer to the summer holidays, it’s looking less and less likely that we will be able to host an event of this size due to the Covid pandemic.

“While these events are our primary charity fundraising events of the year, public safety must come first. So at present we are working on the principle that we won’t be hosting our normal events on the school holiday Sundays.

“We believe that the same decision has been taken by Tenby Rotary and Tenby Lions for their summer events.

“We still hope to be able to host some sort of event for the community when we are able and are still passionate about supporting those in need through this unprecedented time.

“We will keep you posted with our plans for the summer as time goes on, until then we hope you stay safe and we can’t wait to see you at an event soon!” they added.
