Monkton History Day

So many people responded to our appeal for information, photos and memories of old Monkton. We held a very successful coffee morning and exhibition in the Church Hall and were delighted with your response. The highlight of the morning was a walk through Monkton with Pauline, Vera and Dot who were able to tell us about the old community, who lived there and where the shops and business were. We learnt that Monkton was very much a close community where everyone knew each other and how, because there were so many shops you didn’t even have to go to town to do your shopping. Their memories were recorded along the way.
We are planning to have a follow up event at the end of next month.
Thanks to Monkton Communities First (for printing photos and posters), West Wales Maritime Heritage Society( for loan of display boards) and PAVS (for IT equipment).
Thanks to Gwen Griffiths for the photos.
