THE sun shone down on Pembrokeshire on Sunday, June 10, for the Western Telegraph Preseli Bluestone Run 2018.

This is the eighth time this event has been staged by its founders and organisers Jeff and Sian Edwards of the Pembrokeshire County Motoring Events; and since 2011 many thousands of pounds have been raised for the British Heart Foundation.

Head turning and eye-catching motor vehicles/motorbikes of all ages lined the entire seafront of Gelliswick Bay in Milford Haven from 9.30am ready for the start of the 55 mile motoring tour at 11.30am.

There to greet them with a smile were Jeff and Sian, along with members of the British Heart Foundation.

The vehicles were parked swiftly and safely by the BHF along with Brin Morris, David John and Derek James, dedicated supports to all these events.

The special guests at Gelliswick Bay were the mayor of Milford Haven Cllr Rose Gray, along with her consort and children, and the vice-chairman of Pembrokeshire County Council Cllr Simon Hancock, who lowered the Pembrokeshire, Welsh and Union flags at 11.30am, and, along with Sian, bid a fond farewell to everyone as they crossed the start line, courtesy of Puma Energy, as they made their way along Puma Energy's private road, and at the top gate prior to their ‘drive thru’ Hubberston and Milford Haven.

Jeff was there with a smile to thank them all for their support and wish them all a very enjoyable day.

After their drive along Milford Haven's magnificent Hamilton Terrace, the run made its way to Haverfordwest, before crossing over the beautiful Preseli Hills before arriving at the halfway stop, courtesy of the very popular Dyfed Shire Horse Farm.

After an enjoyable break, the tour then continued around the stunning Bluestone countryside, via Crymych, Mynachlog-ddu and Maenclochog, before arriving at the finish line, courtesy of Pembrokeshire County Council, at the Townsmoor Park in Narberth.

There to greet them was the mayor of Narberth Cllr Elizabeth Rogers.

After a number of vehicle ‘linked up’ en-route, around 120-150 vehicles took part in this very popular motoring event.

Jeff said: “This event was another wonderful success which was enjoyed by so many of our dedicated supporters. Our very grateful thanks to you all, and in particular the Western Telegraph, British Heart Foundation, Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, Pembrokeshire County Council, Puma Energy, and to Brin Morris, David John, Derek James and Pete Sharp for their kindness and dedication.”

Jeff and Sian are already looking forward to seeing all at the Western Telegraph Preseli Bluestone Run 2019 in aid of the British Heart Foundation on Sunday June 9, and also the next Pembrokeshire County Motoring Event: the Western Telegraph Pembrokeshire County Run 2018, its 21st anniversary, on Sunday September 2.
