FIREFIGHTERS were called to The Lime Crab in New Quay following reports of heavy smoke coming from the building on July 21.

At 8:21am, crew members swiftly put on BA equipment and found an entrance point while establishing hydrants and a water source.

As the firefighters approached the determined entry point, it was apparent that thick smoke had filled the premises from floor to ceiling, rendering the visibility to zero. 

As all occupants had exited the building, the decision was taken to tackle the fire externally, ensuring the safety of the crew. 

They vented the building and tackled the fire through windows using hose reel jets until it was safe for the crew to enter the premises. 

With the arrival of further appliances, additional BA crews could be utilised and the incident was eventually brought under control. 

The firefighters continued to monitor the incident using thermal imaging cameras to locate hotspots. They also used hose reel jets to dampen and remove loose tiles that remained on the damaged roof. 

After roughly 8 hours, the incident was temporarily closed down and the fire crew returned to the station. 

They made a scheduled return to the incident at 18:30 for final safety checks, at which point the incident was closed. 

New Quay Fire Station thanked staff at the Blue Bell Deli & Bistro, The Mariners Cafe and Gingero’s Cafe for supplying sandwiches and coffee for the firefighters. 

The Lime Crab posted to Facebook: “To all our customers…

“Firstly, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has reached out to us today. 

For those of you that haven’t heard, unfortunately a fire broke out this morning in the building. Most importantly nobody was hurt. 

“The Lime Crab will reopen when it is safe to do so. Unfortunately we don’t have a time frame on this yet, but we will keep you updated as things progress. 

“A massive thank you to our emergency services (who are mainly local volunteers) for the most amazing job they did for keeping the building secure and most importantly the people around it safe. We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work 🙏 

“And again, another massive thank you to all our staff, locals and businesses who have offered their help and support, it really means a great deal to us all.”

St. Michaels School celebrates excellent A-Level results



St. Michael’s pupils with their A-Level results

ST. MICHAEL’S School, Llanelli, is extremely pleased to announce another year of successful A-Level results, with 80.2% of all grades awarded either an A* or A grade.

The vast majority of pupils have earned a place at their chosen university to study courses such as Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Economics.

This is the first year that traditional exams have resumed since the Covid-19 pandemic began with the majority of lessons in the first part of the A-Level being delivered online rather than in a classroom environment. This makes the results even more of an achievement considering the circumstances.

Headmaster Mr Benson Ferrari said: “We offer our sincere congratulations to our outgoing Year 13 class on the publication of their A-Level results, demonstrating that our pupils have worked so hard despite the challenges of returning to a conventional assessment approach.

“They approached the situation with resilience and dedication, which has resulted in grades that are truly representative of their ability.  I am confident that they will all go onto achieve great things at university and in their working lives.  

“We wish them the best as they move to this new and exciting stage of their education.  The preparation which St. Michael’s has provided will be built upon, along with our values and principles providing a lasting framework to tackle the challenges ahead.”

In 2020, St. Michael’s School was awarded The Sunday Times Welsh Independent School of the Decade and this was in part due to the excellent exam results that the school receives each year. 

St. Michael’s was also ranked 13th in The Times 2019 Co Ed League Table for UK Independent Schools, which was the last time that the results were published. The school hopes that this year’s results will continue to secure their place in the 2022 league table which will be published later this year.

Scheme to enhance the town of Tregaron for the National Eisteddfod



THE REGENERATING Rural Towns scheme run by the Cynnal y Cardi LEADER programme has been supporting Tregaron Town Council with a series of marketing techniques and installations to promote and enhance Tregaron in preparation for the historic and cultural event, the National Eisteddfod of Wales 2022.

This work acted as a legacy to the National Eisteddfod at Tregaron following the influx of thousands of people to the town daily for the duration of the festival and subsequently to the surrounding rural communities and local sites of interest.

A wide range of installations could be seen in Tregaron during the Eisteddfod following town branding design work, which included a giant deckchair, lamp post flags, banners, bunting, tiered flower planters, benches & picnic tables, monument conservation improvements, and a prominent Tregaron sign overlooking the ‘Maes’. Many of these features will remain in place for the summer months and can be utilised by the town in the future. Further town development work is due to commence to maintain and enhance the attractiveness and vibrancy of the town.
