Saturday March 2nd - St David's Talk and Coffee Morning

Saturday was a busy morning as we met again for our monthly Coffee Morning and Talk. The talk was given by Society Chairman Linda Asman who gave a new presentation on the subject of Gerald of Wales' Journey Around Wales in 1188, a route she and husband Stuart had followed last year, photographing the medieval sites which Gerald described so famously in his journal. Last year marked the 800th anniversary of Gerald's death and we needed to commemorate that as he was a Pembrokeshire man, born in Manorbier. He is celebrated in wonderful stained glass windows in the churches of both Manorbier and St Mary's as well as a statue in St David's Cathedral.
