Welcome to the Pembroke & Monkton Local History Society Website!

THERE BUT NOT THERE - JOIN IN THE CAMPAIGN!

                        

We are now well immersed in our WW1 project.  Society members are investigating the identities of the soldiers’ names on the Cenotaph and war memorials and we are now beginning to assemble a display in St Mary’s Church.  Our artists Pauline and Sharon have been working with pupils in Year 7, Monkton Priory Community Primary School and Year 8, Pembroke Comprehensive School to create art and a film inspired by trips to the ‘Back to the Front’ Experience at Morfa Bay, Pendine. This is a marvellous resource on our doorstep to really engage children into the realities of trench warfare. 

In this we have been funded by Heritage Lottery but I am now putting out an appeal to raise £750 to purchase the 6 foot version of the ‘There but not There Tommy’ logo  which would be installed outside St Mary’s Church in remembrance of the Fallen.  Participating in this national scheme would also raise money for Help for Heroes and other military charities which assist soldiers in need – so appropriate in this Year of Commemoration.  If you feel you would like to give, please press the ‘donate’ button which will take you to our Appeals page.

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.
