‘Fleets to Flying Boats’ Centre
“Fleets to Flying Boats” is a new visitor centre based in Pembroke Dock – just a short distance from the very successful Flying Boat Centre. Please follow this link for a map.
This new attraction, initially with temporary displays, is an important step forward for the Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust. The emphasis at Fleets to Flying Boats will be a wider story including Pembroke Dock’s social history and links with all three armed forces. The centre will display artefacts from our archive collection.
In a snapshot we have the following at our new visitor centre:
- Displays and artefacts from our Archive Collection
- Coffee Shop
- Gift Shop
- Toilet Facilities
- Disabled Access
- Disabled Parking
- Car, Motorbike and Cycle Parking
This is an all year round attraction, run by volunteers. It is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm (closed for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year). Please phone the Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust on 01646 684220 for further information.
Volunteers: We have recruited more volunteers to our team and again we cannot thank them enough for all they have done and are doing to ensure this new visitor centre is a success. If you are keen to volunteer – follow this link.
Events: Special events will be held throughout the transitional stage, with an important art exhibition planned during August and September (click here for more information). In due course we plan to develop a 200 year timeline on Pembroke Dock’s important history.
Garden Plans: Another element to the project is our ‘Dig For Victory’ garden at the Fleet Surgeons House where excellent progress has been made, with the Pembrokeshire County Council biodiversity officer to protect our wildlife. Pembrokeshire COAST working with GREENLINKS have helped us begin to realise our dreams by starting to clear the garden to create that all important ‘blank canvas’. This will be open to the public in due course.
