Volunteers visit the Museum of Scrimpinology

On Monday our Volunteers visited Pat and Jeff James' Museum of Scrimpinology in Llangwm. The Museum is a treasure trove of memorabilia, a real trip down memory lane - an amazing collection of household items, tools, games, everyday objects from the past as well as an old signal box and railway items, a mining section from Hook, school classroom and cinema equipment and even a vintage car. Incredible that so much is fitted into such a small space! Jeff opens his museum for just one week per year so we were fortunate in that we were able to book a visit. Thanks Jeff and Pat for a lovely evening!

Winners of our May Quiz Night

Repeating their success in March’s Quiz, the winning team were Alistair and Kate Broughton, Wendy Lee and Gareth Beamish, pictured here with Quiz Master Rose Blackburn. 
The History Society will take a break during the summer months and return in September when the next Quiz Night will take place on Friday, September 21st at Monkton Church Hall, 7.30pm.

We visit Penally History Group

Enjoyed a great afternoon visiting Penally History Group.  David Glennester gave a fascinating talk on the WW1 Training Trenches in the village hall, then gave us a conducted tour. We were lucky as the weather was lovely and we enjoyed the walk and the view! The Trenches were constructed in 1914 and are now a scheduled ancient monument.  The Group has produced a leaflet 'Penally World War 1 village walk' which is freely available for anyone wishing to find out more.
