Welcome to the Pembroke & Monkton Local History Society Website!

WE HAVE NOW RAISED THE MONEY !

                        

We made an appeal to raise £750 to purchase the 6 foot version of the ‘There but not There Tommy’ logo to be installed outside St Mary’s Church in remembrance of the Fallen.  I am pleased to report that the money has been raised and we have now ordered our Tommy.  Participating in this national scheme raises money for Help for Heroes and other military charities which assist soldiers in need – so appropriate in this Year of Commemoration.  Thank you to everyone who contributed to this most worthy cause.

We will add to this over the following months - If you have any information, photographs which may help us, please get in touch. The photographs and stories we collect will be published in a book 'Pembroke Commemorates' which will be funded by Heritage Lottery. This will be an important resource for the future.

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.
