Sharing Local History

The project is being delivered by the Five Communities Group and it will commence with the establishment of a steering group with a minimum of one person from each of the five history groups. These societies encompass 8 villages and 1 town in Pembrokeshire. All the societies involved are on a continuum of progress in cataloguing and archiving their resources. Full membership of these groups is in excess of 200, with others from the locality attending events or lectures. A suitably qualified person will be employed on a two-year basis under the management structure of PLANED and each area will have an equal designated timeframe.

Each society will have an individual strand in the newly created website ‘Heritage Pembrokeshire’ and will complement other local websites e.g. Explore Pembrokeshire. This process will develop and strengthen heritage links between the five communities creating a deeper awareness of a sense of place. This supportive network will benefit all groups in researching and delivering future projects and can act as a prototype for linking other history societies in the future.
