Happy New Year

The New Year got off to a good start with a well attended first meeting of the year.  Good to meet up with friends and make some new ones as well.  Some of the Committee of the newly formed Llangwm History Society also joined us - it is good to make links with other heritage groups and we will be attending their meeting on February 11th , the subject being the Haggar films. 
Saturday's Coffee Morning featured an exhibition I had been working on with Terry John for over a year now - the Story of Pembroke.  The idea was to present our history in a series of interpretation panels which hopefully ,one day, can be used in a permanent museum display.  Altogether, 14 boards trace the story of Pembroke from 10.000 BC to modern times - quite an undertaking really.  Very difficult too to distil it into 14 boards - we had originally intended 10.  Pembroke has an amazing history, so many of the great and famous are associated with it - it may be just a small town in the south west corner of Wales but it has certainly played a big part in our nation's history. It really is a crime that we have no museum!
