If every website visitor donated £1.00, we could raise almost double the amount raised by all our fundraising in 2018, and we would safeguard our Heritage for another year.

Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust operates Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre, and is a registered charity in England and Wales, number 1120476. We do not receieve any regular external funding and rely on donations to continue to operate.

Please support our work by considering a small donation through our Local Giving page.

Atlantic flight centenary

Trustees representing the Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust, which runs the Heritage Centre, were among guests invited to a major aviation commemoration held at Swansea Museum.

This marked the 100th anniversary of the first flight across the Atlantic, made by John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown, in June 1919.

Admiring the model of the Vickers Vimy at Swansea Museum are the Air Officer for Wales, Air Commodore Adrian Williams, and Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trustees Andrew Watkin (left) and John Evans.

A model of the converted Vickers Vimy bomber which made the record flight complemented a superb exhibition created by the RAF’s Air Historical Branch. The exhibition, which runs until the autumn, was launched by Air Commodore Adrian Williams, the RAF’s Air Officer Wales.

The Sunderland Trustees were Martin Cavaney, John Evans and Andrew Watkin.
