Sponsor Day on Skokholm a success


In brilliant sunshine and with favourable winds [not all that  easy to organise]  some 40 sponsors and volunteer helpers made it on to Skokholm for the day. The trip  was organised by Steve Sucliffe and the Wildlife  Trust to thank all those who have in the last year given in, materials time and cash  to the renovation project.
Most helpers are involved in the delivery of materials and rarely get the opportunity to set  foot on the Island.




                                                                                       







Our sponsors Valero, South Hook LNG, Zenith Interiors, Towy Works and the Friends of the National Park joined us to see for themselves the use we have made of their donations and materials.



One important sponsor, John Reynolds from Dale Sailing was not able to be with us . The provision of transport of materials and of people for the entire duration of the project has been a most generous and crucially important contribution to the project. Without this level of help and the flexibility offered by John and his team [we can  organise the deliveries at short notice when people and the weather permit]  this  project would be  much more costly and almost impossible to organise.


After a look around the buildings and a guided walk  everyone  gathered for a short tea and cake  break on the lawn before departing again.

I hope lots of people fell in love with sparkling and sunny Skokholm and  will return in the future.
