Promoting our heritage and attractions in partnership, through innovative community led projects
The Ein Cymdogaeth Werin – Preseli Heartlands Communities project, led by PLANED has been exploring how connecting with heritage creatively can contribute to health and wellbeing and provide opportunities for young people through ‘hands-on’ heritage experience.
Launched on Saturday 13th October 2018 at Maenclochog Community Hall, the project will be running workshops to bring communities together to explore and identify the local stories, heritage and culture. There will be training opportunities, community heritage exhibitions, walks and talks, as well as community based discussions about Preseli area’s heritage and culture. All of this will help the project to explore and agree a collective approach to how heritage is used and valued and will help to strengthen the profile of the Preseli area as a destination for heritage tourism.
The Ein Cymdogaeth Werin – Preseli Heartlands Communities project is part of the Great Place Scheme, a pilot initiative across Wales, with the aim of putting heritage and culture at the heart of local communities.

We work with Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority (PCNPA) to deliver the annual Archaeology Day.
In 2018 it attracted over 200 people to Pembrokeshire College. With a great line up of speakers the day included presentations on Neolithic Pembrokeshire, the archaeology of the First World War, to the most recent aerial discoveries in Pembrokeshire.
Attendees also heard about the most recent research and discoveries at Nevern castle and Bluestone quarries.
