A dynamic fair took place last Friday in Haverfordwest, at the old Post Office in Quay Street now known as the Haverhub.

Organised by Grŵp Resilience, the Sir Sero event asked the question: “Are you interested in helping shape Pembrokeshire into a zero carbon county?”

Visitors came to browse, learn, share ideas. They certainly engaged with the various representatives and craftspeople, who are themselves passionate about building a sustainable future.

Among the organisations represented were Cwm Arian Renewable Energy, offering practical advice and support with reducing energy waste and lowering bills, and Celtic Sustainables, whose products include roof insulation made from sheeps wool and from recycled newspaper. Other inspirations included Ty Pren’s roundwood timber construction - an eye-catching centrepiece - and St. Davids Peninsula Sustainability Group, Eco Dewi.

Eco-Move brought a range of their electric bikes, including a cargo bike and a folding bike. There was an opportunity to take them for a spin around the warehouse.

Practical, traditional and truly sustainable crafts were on show, including recycled metal and wooden bowls cut and turned using solar power. For the sweet-toothed environmentalist, Chloe’s plant-based cakes were on offer, while at the front of the hub, the coffee shop provided a perfect venue for some in depth discussion.

Organiser Vicky Moller said: “People came from many backgrounds, some to try out electric bikes and view the Rasa car, others with fantastic insight into how to move forward as a whole community.

“One thing I am sure of is there is plenty of desire to work together to take back our future!”
