Sport Sessions Mark Torch's Arrival
Pembrokeshire County Council is marking the arrival of the Olympic Torch Relay on Sunday, 27th May with a number of sport sessions aimed at the younger generation
Sport Pembrokeshire - the Council's sports development team - and the Authority's leisure directorate - Pembrokeshire Leisure - have joined forces with local clubs to provide sports taster sessions for children and young people aged between seven and 16.
The free 'come and try' sessions are being held at Fishguard leisure centre and Sir Thomas Picton School in Haverfordwest on Sunday - the day that the Olympic Torch travels through Pembrokeshire.
The activities in Fishguard take place between 11 am to 1.30 pm and include archery, swimming, hockey, table tennis, gymnastics and athletics.
From 1.30 pm to 4 pm the focus is on Sir Thomas Picton School for wheelchair basketball, tennis, boccia, judo, hockey and athletics.
As the school is being used for a private refreshment stop for the Olympic Torch team, parking will be severely restricted.
Those attending are advised to use the nearby car parks at Scotchwell or outside County Hall.
Primary school-aged children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

Also, preceding the arrival of the Olympic Torch in Haverfordwest shortly after 12.30 pm is a 'Go-Tri' triathlon with the town's leisure centre as a base.
Aimed at those who do not attempt full scale triathlons, the event comprises a 400 metre swim in the centre's pool, a 12.5 mile cycle ride and a three mile run.
Contact Haverfordwest leisure centre on 01437 776676 for more details.
The Olympic Torch is being carried by runners through the three towns of Haverfordwest, Fishguard and Newport as part of its 8,000 mile journey around the nation before its arrival in London on 27th July prior to the start of the Olympic Games
