SOLVA'S open water swimmers, the Bluetits, have raised £800, for the village's Pwll Melyn steps project with a full moon swim in Solva Harbour.

Thirteen swimmers took the plunge in 9.7 degree water, in the dark, under the hidden full moon, warming up afterwards in a hot tub provided by Castle Hot Tubs.

Santa arrived by boat, complete with jingle bells, and there was a tombola and barbeque on Solva Quay, with meat kindly donated by Jon James butchers as well as mulled wine and mince pies at Solva's Café on the Quay.

The event was to raise money for the handrails for The Great Solva Mosaic Project.

This community venture aims to decorate the steps by the Pwll Melyn lay-by with handmade mosaics created by members of the local community.

Weekly masterclasses are being run by artists Penny Dafforn – one of the Bluetits (in the white furry cape, below) – and Maddie Janes.

The workshops are open to all ages and have been organised by Solva Care, funded by The Allen Lane Foundation.

Over 25 people are learning about colour, shape and design, as well as developing the intricate skills involved in producing mosaics to create decorative panels for the rises of the steps to the Pwll Melyn lay-by in Upper Solva

Their overall design is inspired by the beautiful colours and shapes of the land, sea and sky of Pembrokeshire.

The individual, completed panels will be displayed this evening,Wednesday, December 13, at Solva Memorial Hall in Upper Solva. Everyone is welcome
