Household Enquiry Forms

Posted 15th September 2019

Household Enquiry Forms (HEF) have been sent to every household in Pembrokeshire asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the Electoral Register for that address is correct. Householders are being urged to respond as soon as possible.

The Digital Team is co-ordinating a promotional campaign alongside this on behalf of the elections service. The main aim of the campaign is to encourage householders to return their Household enquiry form, in order to increase the response rates in all of our electoral areas.

The highest response rate for an area so far is 76.62% and the lowest is 45.21%. You can check your area by clicking here to open a map.

Reminder forms have recently been sent to households that didn’t respond to the first letter; residents residents are encouraged to return their Household Enquiry Forms as soon as they can.

Residents can also respond to their HEF form online www.hef-response.co.uk.

If anyone has any questions or queries regarding the HEF process they can contact the elections team electoralservices@pembrokeshire.gov.uk 01437 775844 Office hours: 9.00am to 5.00pm - Monday to Friday.

Archiving Project

Posted 16th August 2019

‘Sharing Family History’ - the exciting archiving project in Pembrokeshire is now in its fourth month. The two project officers - Angela Jones and David Llewelyn have devised a cataloguing system for the five history societies’ archives which can be used by other societies across Pembrokeshire. Photographs, documents and artefacts are being digitally uploaded to the People’s Collection Wales website and ultimately onto a new website 'Heritage Pembrokeshire'. The first 10 weeks was spent trawling through the collection held by Pembroke and Monkton History Society, and the second at Llangwm. Penally is next, followed by Coastlands and Hook. This two year project has been funded by the European LEADER fund and the Heritage Lottery and will enable anyone to access these valuable resources on line - students, family historians, researchers.

 

Community Centre

Posted 1st August 2019


The Community Centre Committee received a setback in their wish to build a new Community Centre for the village when a covenant on the land was discovered. Extensive research has taken place to ensure that the ultimate aim of providing an eco-friendly hall to suit the present and future needs of our growing community will happen. But there will be a delay in accessing funding until this issue has been resolved.

 

Twinning Project

Posted 1st August 2019


The president of Beernem Rugby Club visited Llangwm late in July and there are plans for a match between this newly formed club in Flanders and Llangwm Easter 2020. This is the start of developing closer links between the two areas.

Posted 1st August 2019

The Archiving Project - “Sharing Local History” includes 5 local history societies in Pembrokeshire - Coastlands, Hook, Llangwm, Penally, Pembroke & Monkton. David Llewellyn and Angela Jones have been appointed as project officers on a job share basis. They have a wide skills base and valuable professional experience and expertise - Manager of the Tudor House, Tenby, and former Archivist in Pembroke Record Office. Each society has a collection of photographs, documents and artefacts which will be catalogued and digitally archived on a new web-site “Heritage Pembrokeshire” and the People’s Collection, Wales. This two year pilot project ensures that these valuable contributions to local history are accessible to all.
