Festival Exhibition - a big success!

Our summer exhibition was held in Monkton Church Hall on July 2nd to coincide with the Pembroke Festival. The exhibition was based on the memories and photographs of local people and comprised an audio visual presentation with displays depicting changing times in our community – taking in a tour around the Quays, The Green, The Main Street, Commons, Orange Gardens and Monkton.
The exhibition was received enthusiastically by the community who attended in large numbers, reward enough for all our hard work. We are especially grateful to Jacky and her team of tea ladies who were rushed off their feet supplying refreshments and to all who baked the cakes – which were sold out by the end of the day! We thank also Monkton Voice for sponsoring the event, the WCVA Trust Fund for funding our equipment and, of course all the people who contributed their photographs and allowed us to record their memories.
