Library latest news

The road to Blackpool Mill is closed for work to drainage culverts. Therefore the Library will not be accessible until after the first May Bank Holiday.
After that date, to visit the library, telephone Joe Rielly to arrange a date and time.
You may also request books from either the on-line catalogue or the copy in the workshop. I will bring them to the yard for your collection and you may return them at the yard. This policy change is because the number of visitors using the library on open days averages 2, this does not make it worthwhile for librarians to sit for 4 hour sessions. Watch the blog and website for notice of special open days later in the spring. Joe 01437 731663

Dear Bill,
Proposed ‘No Anchor/Mooring’ zone

Mark has asked that I circulate the attached to you for comment from MHHUA.

The Haven holds a number of habitats, species and environments requiring protection as features of the Pembrokeshire Marine SAC. Two such features which are known to be extremely sensitive to damage by disturbance of the fundus are the Zostera and Red Maerl beds in the lower reaches of the estuary.

In order to safeguard these features, in line with the management of the SAC, it has been proposed that ‘No Anchor/Mooring’ zones should be implemented in areas of particular susceptibility. Attached is a draft chartlet showing the two areas (bordered and shaded red) which have been proposed.

I would be grateful if you would indicate a time scale in which you would be able to gain and forward comment from MHHUA members so I can advise Mark. Any forthcoming comments can then be address either to me or directly to Mark. If you need additional or electronic copies of the chartlet please let me know.

Yours sincerely

John Warneford
Water Ranger
