29 pupils from year 8 in Ysgol Dewi Sant had a tour of the Solar Park at Liddeston Ridge with Tim from the Port of Milford Haven.  The Solar Park has 20,000 photovoltaic panels which generate enough electricity to power around 1,000 homes every year!

The afternoon was spent at the Port of Milford Haven with Sara, Sue, Brian and John who spoke about the responsibilities of the Port and the available careers.  Brian the Water Ranger took the pupils to see Port Control and its staff that control and guide all of the traffic using the Port of Milford Haven which is the UK’s third largest port.
