Supporting the Community

Hello and Welcome to the Port of Milford Haven's community pages.

We take great pride in our role within the community and in supporting so many great local initiatives.

Supporting our communities

The Port of Milford Haven is a Trust Port. We re-invest our profits in the business and develop projects that will create jobs, support economic growth and help deliver a bright outlook for the region. But our commitment to the region is not just economic - we support the community's wider prosperity through a wide range of initiatives, including:

Under the Bridge

Delivered by Milford Youth Matters and the Port of Milford Haven, with thanks to funding from the Police & Crime Commissioner's Community Fund, Under the Bridge will be running again in 2019. Find out what's happening here.

It is one of the highlights of our community events and has even won a Arts & Business Cymru Award in recognition of its contribution to reducing anti-social behaviour, promoting a sense of pride in the area and providing opportunities for young people to try new activities.

DJ workshops, break dancing, street art activities and a skate park are some of the fantastic activities on offer to teenagers at Milford Waterfront on Friday evenings during the summer.

The project has previously been delivered thanks to funding from Arts & Business Wales.

Engaging through art

The Port also used art to engage with the local community over the dangers of tombstoning. 

Many don't realise the dangers. Cold water shock, strong currents and submerged objects can injure and kill. While the Port can and will prosecute anyone caught tombstoning, our aim was to reach out and increase awareness of just how dangerous tombstoning is.

In 2017 we worked with Theatr na nÓg to deliver their award-winning Would you Jump? show to great effect. In 2018, in conjunction with Cardiff Harbour Authority and with funding from Arts & Business Cymru, we went one step further by incorporating a scriptwriting workshops for Year 7 and 8 pupils. Pupils worked with Sara Lewis, freelance writer and director, to create their own storylines that could be used as a Would You Jump? sequel producing fantastic results that were performed by the pupils and the professional actors.
