Saundersfoot Chamber for Tourism

24 years in summary


The Saundersfoot Chamber for Tourism, from day one, expected the popular, successful Village events to move from their hands to others in the Community. The emergence of new groups in the Village demonstrates that this volunteering ethos is alive and well and the Chamber recognises that these groups working along with the existing established organisations are now best placed to run with the baton and continue to move the Village forward, maintaining the high standard that people now expect in Saundersfoot.

The Chamber has worked quietly in the Village collaborating with many organisations to deliver a vast range of events and support infrastructure.

Always working hard, always fun and always enjoyed by residents, visitors and community, delivering amongst other things:-

  • Cawl Cooking Championship of the World and Elsewhere
  • Big Bang weekend
  • Spooky bat trail
  • Pumpkin carving competition
  • Coastal Christmas for the whole of December
  • Saundersfoot Village centre icicle lights
  • New Year’s Eve fireworks
  • Proms in the Park
  • Daft raft race
  • Sealed Knot re-enactments on the beach
  • Fish week
  • Lantern parade
  • Saundersfoot Scene
  • Visitor location plan
  • On line Business Forum offering support through Covid lockdowns
  • Social Media, website developed, populated and maintained
  • Village Map - designed, developed, updated, published and distributed regularly
  • Advertising frames - sourced, erected and populated
  • Regular engagement with Local Press and radio
  • Featured in Wales Coastal Path App
  • Working in collaboration with other groups
    • Village Working Party -  Land train
    • SBHRT - Actively developed the Heritage Booklet
    • Saundersfoot Harbour Advisory group
    • Contributed to the PCC Major Events Strategy


In conclusion, the Chamber wishes all the established and emerging groups well and hope that they will embrace and organise many of the popular, established events.

The Committee members are more than happy to share their gained experiences and lessons learned over the last 24 years.

Saundersfoot “A Village for all seasons” and “A community with spirit”
