Children and parents turned out in their droves to a Milford Haven funday on The Rath on Sunday.

The Teddy Bears' Picnic, organised by the Round Table, saw communities come together to enjoy the bank holiday with their families, raising £550 for Prostate Cymru.

Ralph Rees, of Milford haven Round Table, said: “People from Milford Haven and Hakin, and the surrounding areas, turn up and support us year in and out come rain or shine. And we thank them.

“It’s been a good day, with good donations in our buckets for our worthwhile cause Prostate Cymru, which supports research into prostate cancer in Wales.”

He added: "The picnic was built on the success of last year when we organised the Jubilee street party, and we thought a foundation was there to do something again this year, so we came up with a simple idea for a charity fun day. And as with the Jubilee party we wanted to put on an even with free attractions and admission."

As well as a Crazy Bears show, attractions included face painting, bouncy castles, street entertainers, and music from the Samba Doc band.

Milford Haven Mayor Cllr Guy Woodham, who formally opened the teddy bears’ picnic, said: “What a lovely sunny day on The Rath - last time it poured with rain and we all got soaked.

"It’s been a great day and it’s fantastic to see so many families out with their children enjoying the entertainment organised so professionally by the Round Table.

“I would like to congratulate the Round Table on all the effort that they have put into the day.”

Ralph added: “The community spirit was first class. The residents of The Rath have been very obliging and accommodating - because we had to close half of the street for eight hours. It’s been a good fun-filled afternoon.

“We’re now looking forward to the carnival on Saturday, July 6, with a suggestive theme of the 50th anniversary of James Bond films. And the people of Milford Haven would be pleased to know that the Crazy Bears will be back again for the carnival.”
