Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), north Wales has today received International Dark Sky Sanctuary certification by the International Dark Skies Association (IDA). International Dark Sky Sanctuaries are typically situated in a very remote location with few nearby threats to the quality of its dark night skies. Sian Stacey, Chair of the Bardsey Island Trust said: “We are delighted to announce the news of Ynys Enlli’s new status as International Dark Sky Sanctuary (IDSS) today. Mari Huws is one of the Wardens on Ynys Enlli and has been part of the certification process. She said: “Living here I am always in awe of the island’s beauty – and the night sky is very much a part of that.
The reminder comes as the company confirms it is lifting the Temporary Use Ban (more commonly known as a ‘hosepipe ban’) that has been in place since 19 August for its customers served by Llys-y-Frân Reservoir near Haverfordwest. Customers across Pembrokeshire and some adjoining parts of Carmarthenshire haven’t been able to use a hosepipe after the reservoir fell into drought. This is particularly true of reservoirs in the south east of Wales where levels at some reservoirs are continuing to drop. With no significant rain in the forecast, reservoirs need a bit of extra help to make sure they refill ready for next summer. This is particularly important with the effects of climate change being reported as being linked to increasing the likelihood of droughts in future.5 months ago Wales 247

Despite its religious origins with Christian countries, for many, it’s known as Pancake Day – for reasons we’ll explain.

Digital vaccination records and simplified booking systems are among some of the changes set out in a new plan to increase the take up of vaccinations across Wales. The National Immunisation Framework for Wales sets out a series of actions which will make it easier for people to know what vaccinations they are eligible for and how to receive them. This will be more convenient for people and help to increase take-up of these two seasonal vaccines in the future. People’s response to the Covid-19 vaccination programme has been phenomenal, showing a real collective effort to keep Wales safe. The Covid-19 vaccine has transformed our response to the pandemic, helping reduce serious illnesses and deaths.5 months ago Wales 247
