I’ve no idea why this lovely shop is called Tenby House. Can anyone tell me? It’s been on West Street in Fishguard for as long as I can remember. It looks like the archetypal shop – the sort that children can construct with a ‘Make a Model’ cardboard kit, sharp scissors and nimble fingers. Inside, you’ll find the card, paper, glue and everything else you’d need for the project.
You’ll also find a good selection of DVDs to rent
and greeting cards, stationery items, newspapers, magazines, sweets, crisps, chocolate and ice-creams.
More importantly, you’ll find Ian, Dinas resident and friendly shop-keeper. He’ll help you with your purchases, have a chat if you’ve got time and remind you that shopping can still be a pleasure, with personal service and no pressure.
Ian grew up in Dinas, living in a house right on the main road at a time when there were even fewer cars than there are today. However, the village cats were no better at the green-cross code then than they are now; Ian’s garden had a cats’ cemetery corner for the giddy animals that didn’t realise they had to look right, left and right again before venturing across the A487.
