A group of youngsters have set out on a special Duke of Edinburgh's Award trail.
The school leavers embarked on a Bronze Award training hike through Canaston Woods recently as part of a wider learning project.
Their hike was organised by the Springboard Project - part of the County Council's adult and community learning service.
The project aims to widen participation in adult learning in some of the most deprived areas of Pembrokeshire.
Councillor David Simpson, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Duke of Edinburgh Awards - and himself a Gold Award Holder - said the project aimed to help youngsters who had left school with few academic qualifications.
"Achieving Duke of Edinburgh awards gives youngsters confidence and skills, which can help them on the road to employment," he said.
The training project is being supported by Valero, which is helping to fund the County Council's Duke of Edinburgh Youth Worker post.
The youngsters are pictured at the start of the Canaston Wood trail along with Councillor David Simpson (back left).
