TWO champions of cancer care at Withybush Hospital were recognised for their fundraising work in 2018's New Year’s honours list.

Bernie and Trish, custodians of the Withybush Hospital Cancer Day Unit Appeal charity shop in Haverfordwest, were given a British Empire Medal (BEM).

Through their fundraising efforts - and the generosity of members of the public - their appeal has raised more than £400,000 since it was set up in 2008.

Life was breathed back into a Milford Haven community centre that had lain empty for more than six years.

In January the Mount Community Centre opened its doors to the public, thanks to a new group led by local vicar Father Harri Williams.

The centre was closed in 2011, but thanks to a team effort the group was able to purchase the lease from the county council.

In the last 12 months it has hosted bingo, family sessions, play days, and Halloween and Christmas events for the community.

UP NEXT: March and April

A public footpath, closed for 60 years, was reopened at Herbrandston, thanks to work undertaken by South Hook LNG as part of an agreement with Pembrokeshire

Coast National Park Authority.

In February, Penelope John and Barry Rogers were found guilty of the murder of Johnston pensioner Betty Guy.

Rogers, a former soldier, and his mother John killed the 84-year-old at her home in November 2011.

The crime only came to light after Rogers' ex-girlfriend became suspicious and went to police.

At a pre-inquest hearing in Milford Haven, the parents of 14-year-old Megan Evans were told social media giant Snapchat was unlikely to ever release messages that could demonstrate the extent to which she was being bullied before her death.

Tributes were paid to Pembroke Dock man Mark Waite, after his death following a collision in Haverfordwest.
