The 5x60 Surf Clubs at Greenhill and Pembroke met up at the Tenby school for a joint presentation evening.

Over the last two terms, 120 pupils from the two schools have taken part in a six week after-school junior surf programme run in conjunction with the Outer reef surf school.

Parents and pupils were treated to a short video of their new found skills before Jo Dennison - this year's British Womens'Surf Champion - presented certificates to all those who took part.

Special mention was made of Greenhill's Kirk Lester, who achieved level 4 of the junior surf scheme in just over two years. Next year the youngster plans to undertake a sponsored surf competition to raise money for the Welsh Air Ambulance Service and RNLI.

Organised by Sport Pembrokeshire - the sports development arm of Pembrokeshire County Council - the 5x60 project aims to encourage more secondary school children to take part in extra-curricular activities, while getting fit at the same time.
