Youngsters step up to improve boggy path

Haroldston PathNINE young people have helped improve a popular stretch of path through Haroldston Woods, near Broad Haven, with the help of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Ranger Hayley Barrett.
The group known as ‘Team 150’ installed more than 30 stepping logs in the space of two weeks over two sections of the route.
National Park Ranger Hayley Barrett said: “The team has worked fantastically hard to improve the path, which will be of huge benefit to the local community.
“The path is a popular route for dog walkers and links up with the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail to form a pleasant circular walk.”
The first was a boggy part of path near Haroldston West Church and the other towards a middle section of the path in the valley, which flooded when a stream burst its banks during last year’s wet summer.
The youngsters are all from Milford Haven, Haverfordwest and the surrounding area and completed the work as part of a 12-week programme with the Prince’s Trust.
