"Wales is not for sale" is the message of a group of walkers who start their journey from St Davids to Newport, Pembrokeshire on Thursday.

The walkers are hoping to raise awareness of how they feel second homes and holiday homes are affecting communities right across the county.

This will be followed by a Nid yw Cymru ar Werth (Wales is not For Sale) rally on Parrog Beach on Saturday October 23.

"This rally is a chance for the people of Pembrokeshire to have their say," said one of the rally's organisers.

"So we have decided to walk from the south of the county to make sure the voice of the south is also heard.

"Second and holiday homes affect communities in Tenby and Solva too, these communities are changing too.

"Welsh isn't heard on Haverfordwest's streets as often as on Crymych streets at present, but a new Welsh-medium school is to open in Pembroke.

"More parents want Welsh-medium education for their children since Ysgol Caer Elen opened in Haverfordwest.

"The council is investing in the future of the Welsh language in the county, but if these young people cannot afford to stay or have no housing available to them, what will the purpose of that investment be in the communities of south Wales."

Walkers will start from the Celtic Cross in St Davids at 10am on Thursday, 21 October, and aim to arrive in Trefin by 6pm.

On Friday, they will start from the centre of Trefin at 10am, arriving at Fishguard by 5pm.

Then on Saturday, the walkers start from Fishguard square at 8am, and arrive at the rally on Parrog beach by 1pm.
