UK Coastguard issues safety plea

23 Community Hybu Cig Cymru Consumers urged to shop locally in new campaign UK COASTGUARD has issued

a safety plea for parents to keep a close eye on their children at the beach, after responding to nine separate missing children reports on Monday (Aug 15) across the UK coast. At least two reports of missing

children were at West Wittering in West Sussex. All the children were found safe

and well, but with so many reports coming in during the day, many UK Coastguards Rescue Teams have increased their regular patrols and stayed near the beaches in case of further emergencies. Dai Jones, Duty Controller for UK

Coastguard, said: “We have had quite a few calls about missing children in the last 12 hours. “It has been a beautiful day today

and it has been very busy, where we have responded to at least nine call outs for missing children. It’s always

a huge worry when children go missing near the beach – not just for the parents but for the UK Coastguard as well. There’s always a possibility that children will stray too close to the sea and without appropriate adult supervision, anything could happen. We are urging parents to a keep a close eye on their children when at the beach – thankfully today’s missing children had just wandered off and were located safe and well by the teams. “We urge parents or guardians to

make sure that their children are well supervised at the coast. If you can, head for a RNLI life guarded beach – there are over 210 across the UK coast – and agree a recognisable meeting point. Show your children the nearest lifeguard station and tell your children to head there and tell a lifeguard if they get lost. Busy beaches can disorientate people, especially children, so take advantage of local wristband schemes for younger children.“

THIS YEAR’S Pork from

Wales campaign will make consumers think about how far their pork is from their fork. As part of the campaign, Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) will be giving consumers throughout Wales the chance to win a hog roast in an innovative new marketing push. The theme of the marketing

campaign is ‘Porximity’, and is designed to highlight how many dedicated, specialist pork producers there are in Wales. The campaign builds on the momentum gathered last year by the Welsh pork industry since the launch of the Porc.Wales website and directory.

Citizens Advice receives recognition for volunteers

We’ve been able to take a fresh look at how we do things and make sure our procedures and the roles we offer are fit for 2016 and beyond. We hope it will give others the confidence to get in touch and find out more about volunteering with us, knowing that we put time and resources into supporting volunteers and that we view this as a genuine investment.” Over 80% of Citizens Advice

Ceredigion’s paid staff have previously been volunteers with the company and it’s clear that they value the progression of their volunteers. Of those that go on to paid work outside the organisation, many say that the training and experience they gained were invaluable in finding a job. Chairman Paul Hinge concluded,

stating: “We are very fortunate to have a large proportion of volunteers that stay with us for many years – with two of our volunteers celebrating 15 years, three 10 years and one even 35 years of involvement with our Citizens Advice this year. Achieving Investors in Volunteers in 2016 is the icing on the cake!”

The online competition entitled

‘Hog It!’ will give pork consumers an exclusive chance to win a full hog roast for an event of their choice – a wedding, a birthday or a community celebration. All consumers need to do is search for their closest pork producer using the Porc.Wales website and sharing it on Twitter. The pork industry in Wales is

dominated by small-scale, artisan producers, who are dedicated to rearing the very best pork. Stephen, Nicky, and Abi Evans

breeds, they currently have a registered Gloucestershire Old Spot sow and boar, traditional Large Whites and Saddlebacks. Their pigs are reared outside where they are free to root about and snuffle up fruit and acorns. This natural lifestyle is truly reflected in the taste. The Awesome Pork range

includes a selection of 60 different flavours over a wide spectrum, including specials such as wild garlic and mushroom and their fiery Welsh dragon.
