A FISHERY and campsite on the outskirts of Fishguard has announced today that it will close as the coronavirus crisis deepens.

Yet-y-Gors Campsite and Fishery was initially encouraging encouraging visitors to call in or to stay as a way of getting outdoors during the outbreak.

It was offering half price fishing for visitors, reducing deposits for campers to 25% and offering a free rebooking service for people unable to fulfil previous bookings.

"We want to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air during the coronavirus crisis," said owners Hannah and Darren Bailey last week.

"Fishing and camping are the perfect way to escape the chaos."

Although the couple were taking extra precautions onsite with further cleaning of facilities and asking all guests to act responsibly, reduce contact and to practice good hygiene they announced today that they would close.

The couple said that so far the information they had had from both UK and Welsh governments had been "pretty confusing and poor" and that they had many financial worries as a result of the outbreak.

They urged the local community to shop locally.

Following phonecalls from members of the public concerned that the couple were encouraging travel to Pembrokeshire, they said they would be closing their doors.

“We have had some phone calls from concerned members of the general public wrongly thinking that we were trying to encourage people to travel," said Darren and Hannah.

“We were just offering a quite space for people to go outdoors following government guidance.

“Today we have made the decision to close until further notice."
