Christmas is in full swing. Here in Pembroke it began on November 29th when the Christmas lights were switched on and Father Christmas abseiled down the Keep of Pembroke Castle to mark the opening of the Christmas Market. Thousands made their way to Pembroke for the Market which looks set to becoming an annual event, supported by the whole community, with numbers topping last years’. Monkton too joined in the festivities with a repeat of last year's very successful 'Recycled Christmas Tree' Festival.
We as a Society are always happy to support our churches. We are very much involved with
as we rent office space in
the Church Hall and hold most of our events there. The Monkton Priory
Church is a beautiful Church, the
oldest in Pembroke founded as it was 5 years following the establishment of Priory
Church itself. It certainly
provided a lovely setting for this colourful festival. Pembroke
The idea was to make Christmas trees and decorations with recycled materials, a novelty perhaps for youngster nowadays, but something we all had to do in the ‘old days’! It certainly gave food for thought and prizes went to the most inventive.
