Who we are, and people to thank
In the year 2000 the newly-formed Pembroke 21C Community Association carried out a Town consultation delivering a comprehensive questionnaire to three and a half thousand homes. Almost sixty per cent of leafleted households returned completed documents and out of all these responses the Plan for Pembroke into the 21st Century was formed.
The Pembroke Story was born, and began life in the old Eastgate School with an old Main Street 'Dollymixture' display. The Community Association then raised the money to buy the Old Foundry on Pembroke Commons and with the assistance of Heritage Lottery funding the project developed here.
For the last several years the project has been entirely volunteer-led. Nikki Anderson co-ordinates the project and a huge step forward came when The Tabernacle chapel in Main Street offered a home to the project. Nikki's book entitled Pembroke & Around Through Time can be purchased from here.
