A BISHOP, a firefighter and the mother of St David have been chosen in a Top 5 list of inspirational Pembrokeshire women.

Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire, a family-run business offering quality self-catering accommodation joined in with the 2019 International Women’s Day festivities by putting together a list of their most inspirational Pembrokeshire women.

Highlighting five women who Coastal Cottages believe should be celebrated for their remarkable achievements, this list is composed of women from both past and present.

With a diverse collection, the list praises the actions of current figures and historical individuals such as Jemima Nicholas, who led an army of women to help assist in the capture of French soldiers during the Last Invasion of Britain.

Also included in the Top 5 compilation is Rt Revd Joanna Penberthy, the current Bishop of St Davids Cathedral who was elected the first female Bishop in Wales in 2015; Lottie Chant, a female firefighter stationed at Pembroke Dock; Tania Rees, co-founder of Happy Planet Green Store in Narberth, and Saint Non, mother of the Patron Saint of Wales, Dewi Sant.

Concierge and Corporate Manager at Coastal Cottages, Lucy Hancock, says “We’re delighted to join in with International Women’s Day to help draw attention to gender equality whilst also recognizing the strength and significance of the Pembrokeshire women who have and are helping to shape and protect our county.”

Featured articles on each of the five women have been shared daily throughout the week leading up to International Women’s Day, all of which can be accessed via the Coastal Cottages blog and via links on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
