Well done Scott. more pictures and the report

Dr Who and The Daleks
I am a Dr Who fan and have been since it started way back when our children used to hide behind the sofa, I even took our eldest son (when he was small, any excuse) to see one of the first films, but I did not expect to have the Daleks invade Pembroke Dock. Just to prove a point here they are, well it started with just one but true to tradition they soon multiplied, now I have to hope that the Tardis gets here quick before we are EXTERMINATED.

The Royal Visit to Pembroke Dock
On a fine warm July day HRH Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit to our town, there was a good crowd of not only children from our schools but a large crowd of adults, with flags waving and hearty cheering the Royal couple were made to feel very welcome as they visited what used to be The Garrison Chapel in The Royal Dockyard. They also made their customary walk about to the waiting gathering. more pictures

RFA Black Rover Once again we at Pembroke Dock were honoured with a visit from one of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Ships and true to tradition she was open to the public. On board I had the privilege to meet her Commanding Officer Captain Chris McKenzie who only took command of this fine ship on June 6th 2006, he very kindly took time out of his busy schedule to have a chat with me and to let me take his picture for our web site. Thank you very much.

Pride in Our Communities
There I was watching the TV when the phone rang, are you doing anything right now ? came across, no said I, well get yourself down here then, bring your camera and some spare batteries for me, where to I ask? Hobbs Point was the answer ok see you in a little bye.
Well when I did get there, there was all sorts of activity going on people getting kitted out in wet suits and things like that, it turned out to be Neptune's Army of Rubbish Cleaners and friends who were going to move some of the rubbish from under the water off Hobbs Point. What an excellent job they did, when you see what they did bring up it makes one wonder why it all dumped there in the first place.......For more information click here

Pride in Our Communities Your not going in like that There's nothing in this one Any old iron
On shore at last That took some getting out
your still here then, he thought they had all gone home


Midsummer Solstice Festival
Just one more of the many fantastic events organised by our Midsummer Festival Committee.
For more pictures and information of events visit our main web site




Technium Building This was our second visit to this very impressive building the first time we should have worn wet suits, however this time was a totally different experience, why one might ask! well it was dry and we could look around without getting absolutely soaked, but what a building its very environmentally friendly, they seem to have thought about everything, they are even saving the rain water which is going into a purpose built lake and there are plenty of other labour saving devises as well. Well done to all concerned with this project. There will be more about this visit on our main site.   




Activity in the Park  On Saturday 17th June there was a grand event held in the Memorial Park Pembroke Dock staged by Pembroke Dock Midsummer Festival Committee, not only did they organise this great spectacle they also laid on the great weather. What a marvellous event. Well done to everyone concerned. (more of this sort of thing Please) The pictures below are just a few of the activities

Roll-up!! Roll-up!! All the Fun of the Fair
Pembroke Dock's Winter Fair

It's been a long time since I have been to a fun fair so in real journalistic fashion I felt that I should try to regain my long lost youth and retrieve some very happy memories of fairs long ago, the youngsters still seem to be in good sprit and having lots of fun (just like we did) looking at some of the rides
(which made me feel a little squeamish) I felt that caution should prevail, so I decided to watch the others enjoying themselves.

The New Lifeboat Arrives in Tenby

We in Pembrokeshire should feel very proud and honoured to be the First Station in The British Isle to receive this New Tamar Class of lifeboat. This new Class has cost about
6m to develop and will be phased into other lifeboat stations around our coast. This new boat will ensure the safety of all who use the sea be it for work or leisure.
