Welcome to the Pembroke & Monkton Local History Society Website!

LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT NEW YEAR

with the Lauch of Pembroke's new statue project celebrating the life of

William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke and Regent of England: The Greatest Knight.

Join us on Saturday, Februrary 2nd in Pembroke Town Hall to meet the sculptor, Harriet Addyman, who will present her maquette (scale model) of William Marshal - your views are invited.  This will be a community project and we will be working closely with Pembroke Town Council.  All are welcome to participate - we have a lot of money to raise but together we can do it - just as we did for the amazing statue of Henry VII which has been such a great success.

The event will begin at 10.30am but we will be open for coffee and cakes from 10am.  All proceeds of the morning will go the the new statue fund. (Entry is free, donations welcome).

Notice of our AGM on February 15th

Also in February we will be holding our AGM at Monkton Church Hall, 7.30pm..  Following this, we are pleased to welcome Simon Hancock as our guest speaker and who will give us a talk 'A History of Haverfordwest'

 

Pembroke Commemorates the Centenary of the end of WW1

Back row: Pauline Le Britton, David James, Stuart Asman, Linda Asman, Vicki Haggar, Sharron Harris  Front Row: Marcia James, Maggi Haggar and George Palmer.

Our Heritage Lottery project continues.  We had great support for our Commemoration Event at Pembroke Town Hall on Saturday November 10th with over 100 people attending. It was an overview of our Heritage Lottery supported project: Pembroke Commemorates in Words, Pictures, Art and Film - so much has been achieved this year with research into the identities of the Fallen named on the Cenotaph (which will result in a Book of Remembrance), research into the effect of WW1 on Pembroke and district (the results of which will be published), the School's Project presented by Pauline Le Brittain and finally the wonderful films made by Sharron Harries of local people talking about their family memories of WW1.

We are a voluntary group dedicated to raising the awareness of our history and preserving the memory for future generations.  So join us if you like - through popular demand we now have a membership at the nominal fee of £3 and welcome new members.  If you do not wish to join, our events remain free unless otherwise stated as for our fundraising quizzes.

All work carried out by members of this Society is voluntary  and there are plenty of volunteering opportunities.  We organise many events to promote our history and run Pembroke Museum.  We put up exhibitions and displays in support of community events and also support other voluntary organisations' fundraising efforts. We give talks, arrange walks and write articles.  And more.
