Job Role


What is the best thing about working at Milford Waterfront?

It is amazing what there is to watch here - shipping movements, leisure boats going through the lock gates, as well as fantastic views.

Parking here for families is plentiful and there is a safe area for children to play and for families to picnic on the Pier Head Picnic Area.

It’s been great not only to see my business grow, but all the others around Milford Waterfront and to see it becoming a destination for visitors to come to.

What is your favourite ice cream at The Scoop Ice Cream Parlour & Coffee Shop and why?

I am asked this on many occasions but can never give a definite answer. My supplier of ice cream is Subzero which is a Welsh family run business. I am lucky enough to have over 50 different flavours to choose from and the selection continues to grow. Generally everyone likes the Belgian chocolate, vanilla and mint choc chip, however the vibrant blue of the bubblegum attracts the younger market.

What has been your favourite day in work and why?

I have a few favourite days since opening the business 4 years ago, but there are a couple that really stand out. Firstly, the annual Milford Haven Round Table Firework Display which attracts crowds of people to enjoy the entertainment and watch the fantastic display. Secondly, the Welsh Street Food Awards that took place last summer. It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the event and seeing what Milford Waterfront has to offer to visitors and traders.
