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.

Archiving Project Update

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.
