Walkers pass through area on £1m charity mission
A GROUP of veterans and volunteers have been walking through the area as part of an 870-mile journey around the Welsh coastline.
Walk on Wales is aiming to raise £1 million for the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal and Combat Stress.
The mammoth walk began in Chester on August 29 and since then they have been marching along the Welsh coastline, taking in some of the country's finest views.
The journey is poignantly significant for the walkers as they will be carrying a silver baton bearing the names of the 50 Welsh Guardsmen who have died in service since the end of the Second World War.
The walkers were welcomed by cheering children from Aberporth's schools and nursery when they entered the village.
When they arrived in St Dogmaels they were welcomed by Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority Chairman, Councillor Mike James.
Councillor James said: "It's a pleasure to welcome this group of fundraisers to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and to the brilliant Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail, which will provide them with some of the best views they will experience along the Wales Coast Path."
They saw the best of the Pembrokeshire coast before arriving at the Bluestone Resort, near Narberth, which sponsored their walk. Today they begin the next stage of their journey which will see them traverse south Carmarthenshire. They will depart Freshwater West, passing through Laugharne, Llansteffan and Ferryside before resting in Burry Port on Saturday.
