Great job Harriet! Harriet Addyman set to work this morning to give Henry VII a spruce up for Easter - those pesky seagulls have been perching on his head and using him as a convenience! Now thanks to the efforts of his maker, Harriet, assisted by Pauline LeBritton and Rhiannon Robson he is all cleaned up and looking lovely! Well done girls!!

Following the success of the Henry VII statue, we campaigned for a Heritage Centre dedicated to Henry Tudor, in celebration of his birth in Pembroke Castle. Now, at last, this is becoming a reality. Pembrokeshire County Council began building works at the end of last year and it is progressing well.
For so long an eyesore, these buildings are now being converted by PCC into a Heritage Centre with community facilities including a Tourist Information Centre, Library and Cafe. The land to the rear will become community gardens with access from the South Quay. This is an exciting project and something really to look forward to!

The Requisition of farms for the tank range was a traumatic period in our local history and it is still felt. We have also collected memories from this time and, following Lynne's film, showed two of the digital stories we made on this subject - one by John Russell (who was brought up on Lyserry Farm) and one by Josie Thomas( who was born on Newton Farm). Newton Farm was one of those taken by the military and Josie's family had to relocate to the North of the county - a poignant story as her parents were never happy. These 2 digital stories or short films form part of our community history 'Through My Eyes' - a collection of 45 stories in a book with an accompanying dvd, which traces the history of Pembroke through the individual stories of local people. We published this in 2014 and still have copies left, now reduced in price to the bargain price of £5.
