The House that Disappeared Haverfordwest has been established as a town since the early medieval period and has many buildings to display its heritage. Look on the horizon as you approach Haverfordwest from the A40 and you see the Castle, standing proudly in the distance. If you drive into the town then you will discover a full array of period buildings ranging from the Augustinian Priory sitting on the banks of the Old Quay and the Victorian Workhouse placed on the top of Union Hill. But, there is one building missing from this landscape. A small medieval merchant’s house once stood in Quay Street. An example of a sixteenth century tower stone house, the merchant’s house had a stone-vaulted, fireproof, ground floor store room, complete with living accommodation above accessed by an outside staircase. Overtime the building fell into a state of disrepair and www.haverforwesteye.co.uk Visit was taken down stone by stone in 1983 by four young

apprentices who had recognised the buildings potential as a historical relic and that it was in dire need of rescuing. For the next 30 years, the merchant’s house remained in the hands of the apprentices until they found a new home for it at St Fagans: Welsh National History Museum in Cardiff. In St Fagans, the same apprentices who had taken it down in 1983, resurrected the merchant’s house to restore it to its original glory. Rebuilding the house was a complete labour of love to the apprentices, now accomplished craftsmen, who aimed to use all of the original stones in its reconstruction, and as many traditional methods and building materials as they could use. Although there is no trace left of the old merchant’s house in Haverfordwest, you can visit it in St Fagans, Cardiff. The open air museum is open daily from 10am08443 911618 5 5pm and admission is Telephone: free.

20 MINUTE CONSULTATION

Telephone: 08443 911618


Manor Park In a life-changing move husband and wife team, Anna Ryder Richardson and Colin MacDougall arrived at Manor House Wildlife Park in early 2008. Following a huge amount of work, the park reopened to the public in August 2008, with a real acknowledgment from all inspectors of the enormous changes to the fabric of the park, to the Health and Safety systems instituted and the welfare of its animal collection. And quickly a graduate-only animal keeping department was established. Steve, the solitary siamang gibbon is the icon of the park. With full consultation from renowned animal scientist Dr Jake Veasey (the park’s mentor) the building of a new state-of-the-art gibbon house and island began early on. Steve’s story explains the park to visitors: Here was a maladjusted gibbon, stuck in a small cage with unsanitary and cramped sleeping quarters, alone for many years. Huge efforts were made to improve his quality of life: new house, new garden, new mate, new offspring. Steve is rehabilitated, enjoys the freedom of the trees, and rather than being euthansed, he is now one of only 15 genetically important Siamang gibbons in Europe!

Walkthrough (one of Europe’s largest). 2012 saw the long awaited arrival of the first rhinos in Wales for 40,000 years. The rhino project started almost as soon as Colin and Anna arrived at the park – they knew from the beginning that something needed to be done. They visited Zamba (the first AI rhino baby to be born in the UK), and his mother Cynthia in October 2009 and committed to him then. They set about the development of a state of the art rhino house and now Manor House is home to three young male white rhinos. (Poaching in South Africa has reached an all time high with one rhino being lost to professional gangs of illegal poachers every ten and a half hours) The vision for the future concentrates on breeding programmes for endangered species and genetically important animals whose genes can be returned to the wild. Visitors too have watched the conservation-led changes and have returned to support the championing of animal welfare and species survival. The many TV series filmed in the park over the last several years (including Anna’s Welsh Zoo, Wild Welsh Zoo etc.) have drawn huge audiences from right across the globe.

Visitor facilities have greatly improved with Anna’s team, attention to detail, and the all-inclusive entrance Manor House concentrates on endangered species – ticket gives you free access to all areas with nothing those that need human intervention in order to survive extra to pay. Real food and charming surroundings make and the team wants visitors to understand how they this a true Pembrokeshire jewel – no wonder people can play a vital part in conservation. Visitors love these come again and again! Plus with the park open over 320 zoonique opportunities where they can get up-close days a year, it makes this the best value season ticket in and personal to endangered species, and understand Wales. their needs in the Wallaby Walkthrough, The Valley of the Apes, The African Village and the Lemur 11 Follow us on Facebook www.haverforwesteye.co.uk Visit Follow twitter.com/HWestEye for up to date news on the park.

Garden of Paradise

How to keep your garden a low maintenance one Gardening is one of those things that take a lot of care and attention, and if you are otherwise occupied with taking care of the kids or busy in work, then when you get that hour to yourself, you want to spend it in blissful peace rather than pulling up those weeds. The key to keeping your garden look like a paradise but remain low maintenance is to use plants that need hardly any attention and bloom throughout the year. If you want some easy to care for flowers to brighten up your garden then planting some bulbs will ensure that your garden will be bright and cheerful each spring. Flowers like daffodils, tulips and snowdrops are perfect fuss free flowers as they come into flower at the beginning of February and last up until May, while other flowers like primroses will flower in May and last through the summer months. Herb gardens are easy to maintain too. Herbs like lavender and rosemary flourish throughout the year and will fill your garden with the perfumed scents of the South of France. Lavender and Rosemary also require very little watering as they are both plants that survive well in hot countries. Herbs like mint or parsley will require a bit more tending too as they will need pruning if you have had a lot of wet weather.

and ferns have their own distinctive shape so you can leave them to it. If you want a piece of greenery that flowers a little though, shrubs like Mexican Orange Blossom and Honeysuckle are shrubs that will give your garden seasonal flowering and perfumed scents that you can, especially on a summer evening when you’re having your BBQ. Mowing your lawn once every week is a long and arduous task. Having a lawn is something you do have to keep up if you want your garden to look tidy at all times. Reducing your lawn space is a good idea to keep the mowing to a minimum so think about paving some of your garden with brickwork detailing or stylish paving slabs. Likewise, using garden furniture or structures as a focal point in your garden will also minimise the amount of garden you have to tend to. Any garden will need at least a little bit of maintaining, but hopefully if you invest in some honeysuckle plants and garden furniture, then you will be one step closer to gaining your fuss free garden of paradise.

Withybush Hospital Cancer Day Unit Appeal Charity Shop Opened with the aim of fundraising for the local cancer day unit at Withybush, the Withybush Hospital CDU Appeal Charity Shop located at Riverside in Haverfordwest, has been opened since June 2008. Since then the shop has become well known with many bargain hunters looking for good quality men’s, women’s and children’s clothing. The shop also sells footwear, books, media jewellery bric-a-brac, toys and soft furnishings. The shop is run entirely by volunteers so that all of the profit goes to the charity. Trish (volunteer manager) commented “We are so lucky to have a great team of volunteers of all ages who are so very committed to our aims. We also have the support of so many people in Pembrokeshire who either donate lovely items or patronise the shop by calling in regularly to shop with us. The team of clinicians at Withybush Hospital CDU do such wonderful work with so many Pembrokeshire residents and their families and we believe they deserve out support”.

Get More Out of Your Fuel With the increase in the cost of fuel in the last few years, you would want to do everything you could to save your money on fuel and save the environment while you’re at it. KEEP YOUR TYRES INFLATED Under inflated tyres increases the drag on your car therefore increasing how many times you will have to visit the petrol station. You can check the correct pressure for your tyres in your manufacturers guide. DROP A FEW POUNDS Before you set off, take a look in the back of your car. If it’s cluttered with lots of things then de-cluttering your boot will lighten your car meaning your car won’t have to work as hard. REMOVE ROOF RACKS

down whereas a long distance journey at a fast speed using your air conditioning is far more beneficial. TURN YOUR ENGINE OFF If you come to a junction or another stop and you can see that you’re going to be stopped there for a while, then it may be a good idea to turn your engine off while it’s safe.
