Meeting of February 12th

Ted Goddard's talk on Pembrokeshire Shipwrecks was greeted with enthusiasm - 28 attending. An expert and much sought after speaker, we were fortunate to welcome Ted and hear him speak on “ Pembrokeshire Shipwrecks”. Among the many shipwrecks and daring rescues on the part of the local lifeboat crews, we heard of the infamous wreck of the Lockshiel which ran aground on the rocks of Thorn Island. The Angle lifeboat men effected a hazardous rescue, for which they received medals from the RNLI, but in true “Whiskey Galore” tradition much of the cargo of whisky found its way into the many homes of Angle!

Our next meeting will take place again in the Foundry House Community Centre, Pembroke on Friday March 12th at 7.30 pm. Our speaker will be Frank Harries who will be talking about his fascinating life experiences “Through the Years”.
