South Hook LNG links with Local Schools in Celebration of the Milford Haven Waterway
Pembrokeshire Schoolchildren are being encouraged to learn about the history of the Milford Haven Waterway, by taking part in South Hook LNG’s annual Calendar Competition for 2016.
Linking with Milford Haven Museum and The Port of Milford Haven, South Hook LNG has invited Schools across the County to explore the varied history of the Waterway, contributing artwork that celebrates the importance of the area throughout the years. From whale oil and fishing to royal yachts and the role of the Waterway during times of war, the calendar will depict the changing face of the area through the ages.
“We are very proud to be a part of the Milford Haven Waterway’s varied history, and keen to link with Pembrokeshire schools so that local children have the opportunity to learn more about the important role that the Waterway has played over the years” commented Mariam Dalziel, South Hook LNG’s PR Manager.
As part of the competition, South Hook LNG has invited participating schools to visit Milford Haven Museum, allowing children the opportunity to research the Waterway’s history through an interactive journey, before submitting their entries.
The South Hook LNG Calendar 2016 will feature the artwork from local children, submitted via school participation and selected by colleagues at South Hook LNG, Milford Museum and The Port of Milford Haven. A prize giving will take place early in the New Year, when the calendar will be presented to the winning children and schools.
