A PHOTOGRAPHER is desperately trying to track down a couple he photographed after they had just got engaged on a Ceredigion beach.
The pictures were taken on December 23 when the photographer, Steve Hawkins from Wiltshire, was in Mwnt.
Steve said on his blog, Focal Thingy: “I need to ask a favour. Yesterday, when I was at Mwnt there was a couple with a young lad and a dog enjoying the beach. I noticed him bent down on one knee and smiled to myself but carried on with my shots.
“A few minutes later he approached me and explained that he had just proposed to his girlfriend and would I be able to get some photos of them. The light was fading and all I had was my on camera flash but I was honoured and (fumbling, fuffing and farting about taken into account) They didn’t turn out too bad.”
“Here’s the thing though… They did give me their names and I gave them one of my cards. I can’t remember their names (I’m awful like that) and they haven’t been in touch yet so I’m worried they’ve misplaced my card, so, this is what I’m going to do, I’m going to ask you to share this all you can.
“So, if you know them (highly improbable) or you know someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows them…”

Low unemployment figures for 18 – 24 year olds in Ceredigion
NEWLY released figures show that the number of young people claiming benefits in Ceredigion is the second lowest in Wales.
The figures, which have been released by the Department for Work and Pensions, show that just 1.1% of persons aged 18 – 24 in Ceredigion are claiming job seekers’ allowance.
That figure translates to just 525 people, and is 1% below the whole of Wales.
Since 2010, this figure has seen a 42% reduction in Ceredigion and across Wales 39,000 more people are now in work.
