Free at Last but at What Cost?

As Wales stretches and begins to emerge from covid hibernation, many of us are uncertain how to feel. The loneliness and isolation for some has been unbearable – for others, a chance to recharge, reflect and renew has been a gift. Some of course are grieving for loved ones who are now gone and many are anxious and afraid.

Looking at news reports of England particularly and the folks who have already started to party publicly, it’s difficult not to be shocked by the rubbish, and younger people seem to have been particularly rebellious.

Reports that patrols in Tenby have been increased at weekends, following reports of clashes between groups of youths over the Easter bank holiday, have been difficult to hear for many older people.

Dyfed-Powys Police said that there were a number of reports of underage drinking over Easter, and officers had to break up some groups of young people who were behaving in an antisocial manner. Many, they believed, had arrived by train, and plans were put in place to monitor Tenby station.

A police spokesman said that there was concern from the Tenby community and that police were “keen to avoid a repeat of this behaviour which is distressing for people living and working in the area”.

The police understand how the past few months have been difficult for young people who are keen to meet up with friends but urged everyone to obey the rules in these challenging times. They have asked that all parents ensure their children are safe by making sure that they are up to date with what is allowed and what is not.
