PEMBROKE and Monkton Local History Society will hold two events in April. 

Following the Easter Holiday, they meet next on Saturday morning, April 6 for a talk and coffee morning in Pembroke Town Hall. Doors open at 10am. for coffee and an opportunity to visit the Museum and Council Chamber, which are situated on the first floor of the Town Hall – a lift is available for disabled access. Then, at 11am, all assemble in the George Lewis Room for the talk. Everyone is welcome to attend – you do not have to be a member - and entry is free.

This month’s talk, by popular Pembroke personality Phil Lloyd, is mysteriously called ‘Things you didn’t know about Pembrokeshire!’  Phil served in the police force for some 30 years - first in the Pembrokeshire Police and then in the Dyfed-Powys Police which replaced it. He will be recounting some of the strange and unusual experiences he encountered during of the course of his career.

Secondly, on Friday evening, April 12, there will be another of the society’s popular Quiz Nights in Pembroke Town Hall 7pm. Doors open at 6.30pm and entry is £5 payable at the door.  The ticket price includes a buffet - coffee and tea are provided but you may bring your own bottle if you wish
