A quick heads up that the Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cilgerran in Pembrokeshire is closed due to an unforeseen incident
The Welsh Wildlife Centre have confirmed that there is no cause for alarm. During the last week of August 2019 part of a decorative glass panel at the Welsh Wildlife Centre suddenly broke. No-one was hurt but immediately the building was evacuated as a precautionary measure.
The Welsh Wildlife Centre have been in contact with glass engineer experts whose initial advice is that this is a highly unusual incident that is unlikely to affect any other glass at the Centre.
Arrangements are being made for an expert to visit so they can confirm how soon the Visitor Centre can be reopened and with all the clear up nearly done it is hoped that the building will be once again open on Friday the 30th August, however in the meantime the reserve is all full open and you can still visit with your family no problem.
The Welsh Wildlife Centre said “It is most unfortunate that this has happened during the summer holidays. As well as not wanting to disappoint our visitors, all profits from our visitor centres support the conservation work of our charity and we just hope that our work for wildlife is not impacted too greatly.”
After the centre opens there will still be work that will be needed to be done in around 5 to 6 weeks’ time to completely resolve the issue, however its hoped that this will be done out of normal hours so not further closure will be required, but obviously this could all change as plans sometimes do.
The centre wishes to Thank everyone for their ongoing support and for further information about this situation can be found on their website Here
