Recruiting Call for Heritage Centre

26 Sep

The Volunteer Team which runs Pembrokeshire’s newest visitor centre – in Pembroke Dock’s elegant Royal Dockyard Chapel – is looking to add recruits to the ranks.

Potential volunteers are invited to a Volunteer Recruitment Open Day on Wednesday 8th October at the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre – which was opened by The Queen in April.

“There are many rewarding volunteer positions on offer,” explained Eleanor Evans of the Sunderland Trust. “Apart from meeting visitors there is conservation work in the flying boat workshop and we run a highly praised coffee shop.

“Volunteers lead our education and oral history teams, offer talks and tours and work on an archive which is of international importance. Some of our team are members of a modellers group and the Trust, uniquely, has its own dive group – all volunteers.”

Anyone interested in learning more is very welcome on Wednesday 8th October.

* Latest mini display at the Heritage Centre features ‘Men Of Many Nations’ – focusing on the international connections with the town’s flying boat station. Service personnel from all over the world served locally and the displays reflect this.

Countries featured include Canada, Australia, USA, together with the story of an airman from Mauritius who later became a well known dentist in the community.

The Open Day coincides with normal opening hours at the Centre – 10 am – 4 pm.
