Save The Galleon Inn Outside Benches

As everyone is aware The Galleon Inn situated in Broad Haven,Pembrokeshire is now a beautifully refurbished bar and restaurant and the finishing touch to this refurbishment was the placing of beautifully crafted and safe bench seating outside the pub kindly supplied by SABRAIN Brewery.
The Brewery placed them into position,ready for the May bank holiday and the instant attraction of them was amazing. Everyone loved them and they were full of happy people, both local and visitors enjoying the sunshine. Yes it was good for business, not only for us but for fellow busineses around us. Visually it added to the village greatly.
We never doubted the seating would be safe because historically seating has been in place for decades
5 days later they were removed as the council and the local community council objected to them. First stating 'safety ' issues and then other nonsense which was completely unjustified. Social media has been amazing and this issue has gone viral.
The council have never been to see, measure or discuss the seating. Surely a common courtesy meeting with the pub and brewery to discuss all objections and come to some agreement is not too much to ask?
It's not just about The Galleon suffering, but this affects all small business and the village as a whole. Small business in holiday areas need every bit of help and support they can get from the local community council.
This is a community and we encourage community spirit. Sadly we have all been let down by the powers that be and also this has now also affected the other businesses and their seating arrangements.
It's affected locals and visitors who enjoy sitting outside on the sunshine watching their children safely on the beach.
Please support us in reinstating our benches, to keep revenue coming in to help our local environment and locally employed staff. This is for everyone affected by small minded councillors.
We shall fight them every step of the way . If we lose, we lose but we shall not lose quietly.
Small businesses and villages over bureaucracy!
