Pembrokeshire County Council invites quotes from businesses, self-employed individuals and social enterprises for proposals to develop and test new pilgrimage related products that will align with a new pilgrim route being created between Ferns in Wexford, Ireland and St Davids in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The route is being managed and developed by The British Pilgrimage Trust and partners and will be launched in early 2023.
Quotes are expected to be in the region of €10,000-15,000 and we are aiming to work with around 4-6 small businesses, self-employed individuals or social enterprises. The scheme aims to support local businesses to recover from the economic impact of COVID and develop new tourism products that would be targeted towards potential national and international pilgrims.
The available monies must be spent on revenue costs (eg staff time, travel costs, materials, small-scale products, and intangibles such as marketing material) and not capital costs (such as structural improvements to buildings or creation of new structures). Small scale technological equipment, temporary structures and materials to improve a venue such as paint are not counted as capital.
In order to apply, you and/or your business must be based in West Wales OR you must be able to demonstrate that the product you develop will have a clear positive impact on the economy of Pembrokeshire. The areas of Goodwick, Fishguard and St Davids in North Pembrokeshire are closest to the pilgrim route, and products that would have impact for these areas are therefore particularly welcomed. These products can be specific to Pembrokeshire or could be cross-border in nature, or may involve collaborators from the Wexford area
