Plant Dewi has received funding from The Welsh Government’s Landfill Disposal tax Community Scheme, (LDTCS) to support the Men’s Project in Pembroke Dock.

The funding will support fathers to create a green space that supports the production of food for the local foodbank as well as a number of environmental and refurbishment projects to enhance the Pembroke Dock area.

The project is also supporting the improvement of green spaces and biodiversity in the locality, a project which volunteers are involved in the development and maintenance of.

Theri Bailey, manager of Pembrokeshire Foodbank said: "The Pembroke Dock Centre team of the Pembrokeshire Foodbank have been absolutely delighted to receive fresh veg, grown by members of the Plant Dewi Men's Project, so they can help distribute the produce to those in need.

"The partnership between the Pembrokeshire Foodbank and Plant Dewi has grown from strength to strength over the years with volunteers from both organisations helping one another with hands on initiatives that build community and support individuals with necessary food and life skills."

The Plant Dewi Men’s Project is based at The Hub at 52 Dimond Street in Pembroke Dock and provides a place for men to have some food and meet some new friends.

The men strengthen relationships in the home and the community, learn new skills, and participate in practical activities that support the community.

Fathers can join in the project activities with and without their children and can ring for a chat using the contact details below for more information. Volunteers are always needed to help maintain and develop project activities.

There will also be a celebration/awareness day on November 18 between 10.30am and 1.30pm at the Pater Hall, Pembroke Dock to showcase the achievements of the LDTCS project so far.

Project workers, participants and volunteers will be attending to chat about the project and provide information to those who may want to get involved.
