Press Release: Celebration of an
Inclusive West Wales—Saturday 17th January 2014—part of the National
‘Disabled Access Day’ Program.
It sometimes feels like access, inclusion and social responsibility are
overlooked in tourism circles, but we believe they shouldn't be! So
many people depend on inclusive providers, and we want to help promote
that and celebrate their work.
There will be a information stands from tourism operators and
access/inclusion related providers and talks from diverse groups
including Pembrokeshire People First, Wales’ Disability Action Group,
Pembrokeshire County Council’s Head of Therapies, experts in Total
Communication, domiciliary care providers and a number of award winning
We have knowledgeable and inspiring speakers with decades worth of
personal experience of making our region more accessible and inclusive,
and even an advisor for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games!
There will also be a barbecue, teas, coffees and cakes available
throughout the day, as well as a farm walk so if people want to make a
day of it.
The Celebration will run from 10.30- 3.30. It is free for the public to
enter, while the cost of a promotional stand is £10 which goes towards
Clynfyw’s Wheelie Good Idea Project, sending refurbished wheelchairs
and mobility aids to Sub-Saharan Africa.
The celebration is hosted by Clynfyw Care Farm with support from
Pembrokeshire Tourism and Pembrokeshire County Council.

to Stakeholders to get involved
We would like to invite you to take part in a Celebration of Inclusive West Wales on Saturday 20th September 2014.
"We were lucky enough to win the Best Access for the Disabled Visitor at the Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards last year," said Jim Bowen, Clynfyw’s Manager, "And we are proud to be sponsoring that award this year. There is so much good practice in West Wales and we believe it should be celebrated and promoted. It sometimes feels like access, inclusion and social responsibility are not worth shouting about in tourism circles, but we believe that they are! So many people depend on inclusive providers, and we want to help promote that."

There will be information stands from tourism operators and access/inclusion related providers and talks from groups including Pembrokeshire People First, demographically-specific tourism support groups, and experts in Total Communication. We will be promoting the event far and wide to local and national press, on social media and other contacts we have made from nearly 30 years in accessible tourism.There will also be a barbecue, teas, coffees and cakes available throughout the day, as well as a farm walk if you want to make a day of it. The cost of having a stand is £10, which goes towards Clynfyw’s Wheelie Good Idea project, sending refurbished wheelchairs and mobility aids to South Africa.The celebration is hosted by Clynfyw Care Farm with support from Pembrokeshire Tourism and Pembrokeshire County Council. Please let us know by the 1st September if you would like to have a stand.
