The St Dogmaels annual sheepdog trials were held at Penwern Fields, Moylegrove Road on 19th August. This event has been running since 2005 and is affiliated to the South Wales Trials Association – which covers six South Wales Counties plus Gloucester and Gwent. The St Dogmaels sheepdog trials attracts competitors from all parts of Wales, plus many from France, Germany, Sweden, Italy and Australia.

This year the committee decided to donate current funds to local Charity; Paul Sartori Hospice at Home. A cheque presentation was held on 26th July at the Webley Hotel, Poppit Sands which Tim Davies from Paul Sartori attended. The St Dogmaels sheepdog trials donated a fantastic amount of £200.00.

Tim Davies, Head of Retail at Paul Sartori said “We are so grateful to all local events such as these sheepdog trials for supporting the charity. It is through the generosity of the local community that we are able to continue to provide end of life care to Pembrokeshire people.”
