Rose extended thanks to all who supported the Quiz Night and especially to the ladies of the Committee for providing the excellent buffet.  £140 was raised for Society funds.

Dyfed Family History Fair September 16th

We attended the Dyfed Family History Fair which was held in St Peter's Hall, Carmarthen.  Good opportunity for networking as so many Societies take part. Nearby is St Peter's Church, where can be seen the tomb of Sir Rhys ap Thomas who played such an important part in Henry Tudor's victory at Bosworth.

July 31st 2017 - Museum volunteers follow the digital Town Trail

We launched the new Town Trail 18 months ago - funded jointly by Pembroke Town Council and Pembrokeshire County Council's Town Centre Support Programme.  The Trail is marked out in 30 bronze plaques accompanied by a booklet with fold out map - now you will find wall mounted plaques bearing QR codes close by.  

Scan these with your mobile device to discover the history of the site complete with heritage photographs.  The QR codes link to our website  and can be accessed in both English and Welsh.  The Digital Town Trail was implemented by Pembroke & Monkton Local History Society working with Modern Print and Design, Pembroke Dock with funding from the HLF.  

Thank you Heritage Lottery Fund!
