New Year Snow at National Botanic Gardens
4th January 2010
... Comments

The New Year has started White and Bright!  New Year's day saw us in North Pembrokeshire with 3/4 inches of snow.  Stunningly pretty but the ice and snow are causing a few problems particularly on ungritted side roads and indeed some B roads.  We are unable to get out of our drive as with temperatures dropping to -12 C this morning our drive is rather like an ice rink.

However do spare a thought for the Staff at the National Botanic Garden of Wales as they are battling to open the attraction at 10am today.

Head of facilities Clive Edwards said: “We have a wedding party here today so everyone is pitching in to clear the snow and make the place safe – it is literally going to be a ‘white’ wedding!

“There is a lot of snow about the place – especially in the car park - but, if you are careful, everything is fine.”

Entry to the Garden is free throughout January which is the first month of the Garden’s 10th anniversary – it first opened on May 24 2000.

The licensed restaurant and shop are open as usual.

The Garden is open every day (except Christmas Day). Opening times are 10am-3.30pm.

For more information, call 01558 668768 or go to

By the way the Wedding Couple are from Saron near Ammanford and we wish them a wonderful day and bright future together.
