NCI WOOLTACK POINT HOLDS CONCERT TO RAISE FUNDS

2nd June 2019. The team at NCI Wooltack Point have held a concert to raise much needed funds. 

This summer, NCI Wooltack Point station has been celebrating its 10th anniversary as one of the National Coastwatch Institution’s fifty-four lookout stations. Established in 2009, the NCI station at Wooltack Point, near Marloes, maintains a visual and listening watch across St Brides Bay, Skomer and the entrance to Milford Haven.

NCI Wooltack Point recently held a concert in Dale Coronation Hall which included a fantastic performance by West Wales choral and instrumental group Frenzaloud. The evening raised funds for further renovation to the station, where the windows will soon need to be replaced.

Coinciding with the NCI's 25th anniversary, Wooltack Point's station has just had its exterior carefully renovated so that it can continue to operate in its stunning, but highly exposed location on the Deer Park above Martin's Haven, the departure point for the ferry to Skomer Island.
