September 4th Meeting

After a break for the summer we started our Coffee Mornings again on Saturday and will be holding them on the first Saturday of the Month at Monkton Church Hall from now on. We will try to do something new each time. This time,as a special feature, we were able to screen "Pembrokeshire My County", the film made by ESSO in 1959 as a tribute to Pembrokeshire after they plonked their oil refinery on our previously unspoilt shores. Of special interest to us, there is a clip of the Pageant of Pembroke with Roy Haggar magnificent as Henry VII - wouldn't it be wonderful if we could get more footage of this? And also a clip of the Kathleen and May at the North Quay being unloaded by Annie the Mill. Great stuff!! Thanks to Vikki (Haggar)Dyer and Mr Len Mullins of PCC for obtaining it for us to show,

Had a good attendance again raising enough money to carpet our office! Jacky and her coffee team were worked very hard - their efforts are very much appreciated. Our events are free so it is important that we raise money with our coffee sales and raffle: venue hire and preparing exhibitions cost money. We are extremely grateful to WCVA Communities Trust Fund for funding our equipment and PAVS for funding our Display Boards. Now we no longer have to rush around borrowing other people's equipment!
