We begin our Autumn Programme

We began our Autumn programme yesterday, and what a good beginning! Popular local character Reg Williams spoke to a packed Church Hall about his long career as a local postman in a talk entitled “50 Years a Pembroke Postman”. Reg was in good form as he recounted his memories of leaving school at 14 and getting a temporary job as a telegram boy, a job for a fortnight in 1945 but which he actually left in 1995, 50 years later! As you can see from the photographs, we had a pretty full house!!
