Covid – 19 announcements


Welcome Back !!! (updated 10th May 2021)

*Reopening news*

The Regency Hall Trustees and Management team are pleased to announce our doors will reopen on Monday 10th May for low risk classes ONLY. These will include gentle exercise classes, children’s classes, & small meetings. Our Tea Room/foyer and kitchen will remain closed for the time being. Saundersfoot Playgroup will be open in term times, and the onsite Library will be available for the general public to use.


Classes will be reviewed on a monthly basis with the aim to reintroduce our groups slowly whilst adhering to the latest Welsh Government guidelines. This will enable us to safely provide the community with a wider variety of classes.

Tutors have been contacted and will make individual contact with their group members. A list of classes starting back from Monday 10th May will be available on our Facebook page shortly along with information about class enrolment.

Priority at this present time is to safely return our classes. We encourage people to send enquires to our email address: or contact us via telephone on 01834 811700 rather than entering the building in person.

The vaccination clinics currently held on individual Tuesdays, will NOT be effected by our reopening, and a reminder that the hall is open for the Senedd and Police and Crime Commissioner Elections on Thursday 6th May.

We look forward to welcoming you all back as soon as we are permitted, and once again provide the village with the much missed services we have supported over the years.





Cashless payment coming soon to National Park Authority car parks

Motorists visiting car parks run by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority will soon be able to pay for their tickets without the need to carry coins or to queue at pay and display machines.

From Monday 15 March 2021, people who don’t wish to use the existing on-site coin machines will be able to use PayByPhone, which allows people to purchase tickets via an app, text, a phone call or online via

The existing coin machines will remain in all the car parks for use by those who prefer to use cash and for those who are unable to access the online system, with a free 30-minute ticket continuing to be available at all sites.

National Park Authority Director of Countryside, Community & Visitor Services, James Parkin, said: “Introducing cashless payment methods has been a challenge due to the remote location of some of our car parks, but we believe the PayByPhone solution will give motorists greater flexibility and will be particularly useful as we all look to take extra precautions in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

“The coin machines will remain in place for those that need them but PayByPhone provides a whole range of alternative options. It is already used in numerous locations across the UK and by organisations including the National Trust.

“Motorists will need to be aware that using PayByPhone from our car parks will depend on network coverage, which will vary depending on the location and your provider. While you may wish to pay for a ticket before travelling to the car park, this does not guarantee a space will be available.

“We understand most people are not allowed to drive to exercise at this time but our car parks are open to those that are permitted to use them under the current Welsh Government restrictions, such as people with specific health or mobility issues.”

Motorists can download the PayByPhone app from the App Store or Google Play Store to register or register online via to pay for their parking from their mobile phone/computer.

Payments can then also be made by calling 0330 060 6203 or by texting 65565.
