Happy Christmas

Christmas 2010 is one for the record books - a white Christmas is a rarity here. But with weeks of freezing weather behind us (the coldest December since records began) the novelty has worn off somewhat! Christmas Day however was so lovely with brilliant sunshine - a real winter wonderland.

Next Event - January 8th

Our 2011 Programme

We have now prepared our 2011 programme in the form of an A4 double sided leaflet. August apart, we have events running every month. We continue to run our Saturday coffee mornings on the first Saturday of the month at Monkton Church Hall, each having a different theme with accompanying exhibition. Our first however will be on the 8th of Jan as the 1st Saturday is New Year's Day. The topic is family history which features a short introductory talk at 11 am. by Roslie Lilwall of the Dyfed Family histoy Society. To those wishing to get started , help will be given. Then we have a programme of talks and also fundraising Quiz Nights with Pauline Waters. Our Summer Exhibition this year will take place in July and the theme is Pembroke's Maritime Past. Any contributions of material towards this and any of the other displays will be greatly appreciated.

Pembroke Winter Festival

The enterprising traders in Pembroke organised a Winter Festival this year on December 4th to 5th and invited us to take part. We had already arranged our usual coffee morning in Monkton Church Hall but decided that we could actually manage to stage an exhibition in Pembroke as well. A big thank you to Mr and Mrs St John Stimpson for loaning us some of their collection of old toys which made a lovely exhibition. The second exhibition in town took place in Paddles, formerly Haggers cinema and pictured here is Vikki (Hagger) back in her old haunt. Part of the exhibition was an audio visual presentation of old photos and memories which went down well in the old cinema!
