My Great Grandfather, Edward Young, sold tickets for the ferry. In 1871 his address on the census was the Crown and Anchor, 17 Front St. Do you know when it closed and are there any photo's?

Just wondering if i could advertise an event on your web site. I am Chairperson for the Jumping Beans Voluntary Parents Association, Pembroke Dock and we are holding a Summer Spectacular, Saturday, September 8, 11-1pm at Jumping Beans Day Nursery.
The event will include face painting, Hook-a-Duck, Cake Stall, Bring and buy toy stalls and a snack stall, etc. All are welcome and any proceeds raised by the event will go towards items such as sports equipment for our children to use as jumping beans encourages a healthy lifestyle for our children.
We are a voluntary group set up by parents of children that attend the nursery and make no monies from these fundraising events.
Any advertising would be beneficial as i know that a large number of the parents view this website and advertising early makes a huge difference to turn out on the day.

Many thanks

Vintage gravy With Thanks to Old Grumpy

I think I might be getting the hang of this politics business, at last.
The trick, I think, is to cultivate the ability to tell lies while speaking the truth.
For instance, on a recent visit to the doctor, I was asked how much I drank.
"My wife and I share a bottle of red wine most evenings." I replied, hoping he would be too polite to enquire too closely into the meaning of "share".
He was, and probably calculated: six glasses of wine in a bottle, divide by two, multiply by seven = 21 units per week, before writing: "drinks only in moderation" on my records.
Last Saturday, to celebrate our dominance over the Aussies, I splashed out on a rather more expensive bottle than usual.
It actually cost £4.49, but that was with £3.50 off, so, as the mathematicians among you will have worked out, its original cost was a penny short of eight quid.
This I can tell you is way, way outside my normal price range.
When I came in from the garden to have dinner, I found the bottle already open on the table and thought to myself "how thoughtful of Old Grumpette".
However, when I came to pour myself a glass, I noticed that the bottle was almost horizontal before anything came out.
On making enquiries, I discovered that we were having braised beef and the recipe called for two glasses of red wine and a couple of dozen shallots (from the garden, of course).
When we sat down to eat, Old Grumpette shoved her glass over to me and said: "Pour me a glass of wine."
"Help yourself to some more gravy", I replied.
