WORK on Neyland's ambitious new community hub started this spring.

Once completed, the £1.5m development will see the town council and the town library rehomed on the site of the Athletic Club.

The Beast from the East swept in, covering most of the county in a thick blanket of snow.

Council gritters kept the main roads clear, but those in more remote areas either had to make the most of the snow and stay at home, or brave the elements.

Among them was local GP Dr Daniel Weaver, who received plenty of praise after he walked six miles from Burton to Milford Haven in order to get to work.

Almost 100 people paid tribute to his efforts, which many said demonstrated the dedication of frontline NHS staff.

Elsewhere in the county, tractor and 4x4 owners pitched in to help get emergency service workers where they were needed.

In Hakin, off-duty policeman Spencer Rourke helped escort nurses to priority patients.

UP NEXT: May and June

A partnership between town and county council, and a local charity, helped ensure Milford Haven paddling pool remains open.

In March, the town council agreed to support a draft agreement to help fund the running of the Rath pool during summer holidays.

Boxing legend Frank Bruno was guest of honour for a red carpet event in Milford Haven in April.

The former WBC heavyweight title winner was joined by ex-Wales international Rupert Moon for Milford Haven Round Table and Ladies’ Circle handover dinner.

Services to remember those who died at Freshwater West beach in 1943 took place at Milford Cemetery and Freshwater West also took place this month.

On April 25, 1943, two landing craft and a rescue boat sank, with the loss of all lives.

The two landing craft, with 73 sailors and Royal Marines, were en route between Harland and Wolff’s shipyard in Belfast and Falmouth.

A fault in their design meant that they got into trouble as a gale blew up off Freshwater West.

Some of the bodies were washed ashore in Freshwater Bay in the coming days, and were buried in various cemeteries, including in Milford Haven.

The Port of Milford Haven submitted a revised version of its multi-million pound master plan to Pembrokeshire County Council.

In 2015, outline planning was granted for a major overhaul of the area – known as Milford Waterfront – with a retail food store at its heart.

But in April the Port revealed a new direction for its £70million project, which it estimates will create around 600 full-time jobs.

The changes include more residential properties, extended office space, and a large indoor leisure facility.

Plans for a care home on site are out, it said, while hotel floorspace would increase five-fold to accommodate a second ‘upmarket hotel’.

Restaurant space would also shrink by 63 per cent.

Changes to the proposed entrance to the development would also see the Grade II-listed Old Docks building saved from demolition.
