The Bluestone Blog

We have lots of wonderful people working here at Bluestone – you may already have met them or read about them.

Well, we’re giving them chance to tell you what’s going on here at Bluestone and around us in Pembrokeshire, or what they find interesting at the moment. There’ll be nature updates from Rob Parry from the Wildlife Trusts, who will tell you more about the local birds and beasts, and Martin and Phil might share a few gardening tips, while Terry gives us something to think about with his fascinating insights into local history. Check back when you can and catch up with what’s going on in Bluestone. It’s almost as good as being here.
