County goes potty over Harry Potter

Great to be back
As Harry Potter fevers grips Pembrokeshire, with filming for the final film in the J. K. Rowling series taking place at Freshwater West, among those involved is Natasha Llewelyn, a former pupil of Netherwood School and Greenhill School, Tenby. Natasha (pictured) worked on Harry Potter - The Goblet of Fire, an installment, at Leavesdon Studios in London and was called back to work in the assistant director’s department for the filming of the new film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. After leaving the university of Glamorgan, Natasha worked for HTV on Nuts n Bolts and then BBC Pobol y Cwm, with Welsh rugby hero Ray Gravell. She then left Cardiff for London to work for the BBC on Eastenders for a couple of years where she worked as a third and then second assistant director. ‘Tasha’ also gained experience working on films, including Relative Values, starring Julie Andrews and Colin Firth, and Tomb Raider 2 starring Angelina Jolie. “I have had, good luck and incredible opportunities since I left school,” she said. “I would say to any Greenhill pupil interested in a career in the media, determination, tenacity and endurance are important factors. “It really has been great having the opportunity to work on Harry Potter again and see everyone, all the old crew and actors, but I left the profession to be a mum and now I’m looking forward to just being that again.”

Pic. Gareth Davies Photography A smile for the camera plays as Ron Weasley. Freshwater West has become Pembrokeshire’s answer to Hollywood this week as filming for J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows gets underway. Large crowds have been flocking to the beach to see the Shell Cottage set which has been constructed in the dunes. And this week, they were rewarded with glimpses of the star-studded cast, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Emma from Rupert Grint who Watson (Hermione) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Evanna Lynch (Luna) and Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix). Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Potter mania bolstered hotel bookings in South Wales by up to 150 per cent last weekend on LateRooms.com as thousands of fans made their way to the county. The first of two parts of the film will be released in 2010.

A royal occasion at ‘Bird feeder’ new LNG terminal causing rat problem?
The South Hook Terminal in Milford Haven, was formally inaugurated by His Highness The Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, on Tuesday. Her Highness Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser AlMissned, Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad AlThani, and His Royal Highness The Duke of York, were also in attendance at the historic ceremony with an audience in excess of 300 key figures from the State of Qatar, the UK and the global energy sector. The South Hook Terminal, which is owned by subsidiaries of Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil and Total, is the largest liquefied natural gas terminal in Europe with a capacity of 15.6 million tonnes per annum. The terminal forms one element of the wider Qatargas 2 project, the world’s first fully integrated value chain project, and will be supplied with Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) sourced from the North Field in the State of Qatar. This is a great milestone for the State of Qatar as the South Hook Terminal is Qatar’s first involvement in the downstream gas industry. His Excellency Abdulla bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, Deputy Premier and Minister of Energy and Industry said: “As a part of His Highness The Amir’s Vision, today is a historic day for Qatar as we inaugurate the first project and investments outside of the State of Qatar. “We see this project as a source of energy diversity and security for the United

Kingdom - bringing diversity in type and supplier for the country. “This investment in the creation of energy capacity in the UK is a strategic and long term partnership for both our countries. We take our responsibilities as a supplier of energy to markets around the world seriously and are committed to being a reliable energy partner for the United Kingdom.” Ed Miliband, secretary of state for energy and climate change, said: “This inauguration heralds the first of many shipments from Qatar, which will help to maintain a diverse and secure gas supply for the UK for years to come.” Mr. Rex W. Tillerson, chairman and CEO of Exxon Mobil Corporation, added: “South Hook is a striking example that international teamwork and technology can provide the energy needed to fuel economic growth, improve environmental performance, and build a brighter future for all. “We are proud of our long relationship with the government and people of Qatar. The extent of our friendship is unique and historic, spanning

the entire energy value chain from production to distribution to marketing. Our joint success is a testament to what is possible when national and international energy companies work together."” Mohammed Al-Naimi, director and general manager of South Hook, said he was proud and delighted that His Highness The Amir and Her Majesty The Queen had recognised the tremendous achievement. “South Hook is truly honoured. This has been a ground-breaking project in terms of size, organisation, financing, and technological innovation. “But it would not have been possible without our partners, contractors and our dedicated workforce. “We are also pleased that over our time here we have been able to make a contribution to the local and regional economies and have formed many meaningful partnerships throughout our community. “We are committed to playing our role in the future of the community as a good and trusted neighbour.”

A local resident could be the cause of a rodent problem at one of Tenby’s prominent beauty spots. Sightings of a number of rats have been made during the day at Castle Hill, with Pembrokeshire County Council’s pest control officer unable to deter the rodents with bait boxes placed in the area. Now it seems that one local resident who has been visiting the area with large bags of food to feed the seagulls could be held partly responsible for encouraging the rat infestation. “Several people who have visited Castle Hill recently have voiced their concerns that a great deal of rats seem to be frolicking around the area during the daytime while people are trying to enjoy their lunch,” said clerk to the town council, Mr. Andrew Davies, at their meeting on Tuesday evening. “County council’s pest officer has been trying to tackle the problem, but it seems that the situation has not been helped by this person who has been throwing several bags of scraps down for the seagulls, who are not eating it all and the rats are tapping into it,” he added, stating that photos had been taken of the culprit and that county council could possibly take action. “I guess that throwing food away could be considered as littering, so I suppose they could be charged with that,” commented Clr. Mike Thorne, with Mayor, Clr. Mrs. Sue Lane, reaffirming a request to the public that many signs in the area stated, not to feed the seagulls.

Construction work still on hold
Despite a town councillor’s claims that the redevelopment of Tenby’s former civic centre into luxury apartments has restarted, the Observer has unfortunately discovered otherwise. The £3 million scheme which involves the extensive redevelopment of the Grade II listed sea-front buildings, the Old Guildhall, and the neighbouring Glendower House into a range of luxury apartments, appeared to have come to a standstill in January. At Tuesday night’s meeting of the council, Clr. Mrs. Tish Rossiter was pleased to report that work seemed to be underway again. “I’ve been told that a lot of work is taking place inside the boundary of the Guildhall building, which hopefully will allay fears that the scheme has been left,” she said. However, when we contacted the developers to ask about the work restarting, a spokesperson from Macob Tenby Ltd said: “Scaffolding has recently been erected around the One Tenby development to help protect and preserve the façade and windows of the Grade II listed building. Construction work is still on hold until market conditions pick up.”
