positive living news
The Meadow isn’t only a cafe, it’s a multi-purpose space to spend time on yourself and with others. In addition to wholesome food and drink (inclusive of a delicious vegan menu) they offer naturally made products such as coffee soap & turmeric blend, film nights and wellbeing workshops.
Connectivity is something the modern world demands. Accommodation agents however, are seeing small ripples of movement towards guests wanting to disconnect from their regular lives, so they can fully enjoy the property, the local people and their surroundings.

positive lifestyle activities
your stories on physical and mental health
A large section of society experiences some form of physical or mental health challenge during their lifetime and we are keen to show we ALL have the ability to manage and improve our wellbeing, through choices about how we think and the things we do.
Read the first of our real life stories from individuals and business leaders in West Wales, which we hope will provide food for thought and inspiration to initiate positive action in you.
My name is Kitty and I moved to Pembrokeshire from Weston Super Mare 4 years ago. I was very unwell with Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, neither of which I believed in, not for myself, but which ate my old life up anyway, to the point of not actually being able to walk at all for a while.
I’m Thom, originally from Marloes, but now live in Milford Haven with wife Stacey and children, Evie, 6 and Sam, 2 – as well as two scruffy mutts, Murphy & Paddy. I work in the fantastic and famous town of Tenby, a real hub of goings on in West Wales. I work for FBM Holidays, a holiday letting agency and part of the FBM group.

A very warm welcome to the fifth issue of the Life Seeker community newspaper. I’m pleased to see readership continuing to rise as we enroll key organisations to support and share the positive living message to the community of West Wales.
EXCITING NEWS for this month is that Life Seeker is now trading as a community interest company, meaning 100% of our profit is reinvested into the project and long term, will subsidise positive lifestyle activities to help you flourish as a community. We’re delighted to be working in this way and will be sharing ways to get involved moving forward.
In this issue… we share an insight to mental health charity Get The Boys A Lift, details of the charity ball for the 10th anniversary of Thorne Mason Trust and keep you updated on the adventures of Karen Penny on her 20,000 walk around Great Britain and Ireland for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
We look at how visitors to West Wales are taking a mindful approach to holidaying with FBM Holidays, how coastal cafe The Meadow support a holistic approach to wellness and the positive effects of gardening at The Perennial.
We also share how Pembrokeshire Remakery are encouraging us to mend and repair to reduce landfill waste, how a lady on Instagram is tackling 100 things to do in Wales, upcoming events and more.
Our first stories from The Smile Files had the desired effect, providing you with an insight to how others manage their wellbeing to act as a catalyst to manage your own. Many thanks to Kitty Parsons and Thom James for sharing their stories this month.
Until next time… play smart. live well.
