Pencoed residents on heritage journey

Helmets were firmly set and lookouts posted as residents of Pencoed Care Home, Wooden, Saundersfoot, took a trip back in time when enjoying their first visit to Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre.

A party of residents and staff discovered stories of Pembroke Dock’s fine history and the town’s long connections with all three armed services. They found the World War I area, which includes a very realistic trench, particularly evocative, along with displays on D-Day.

Surveying the scene from the replica World War I trench at Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre are Pencoed residents Mair Weston, Gwladys Ely and Elsie Berry with staff members Anne Escott and Denise Hodge.

 “We had a fabulous time,” said Anne Escott, Registered Manager of Pencoed Care Home, “and we will certainly return soon. Our coach driver told us about the Heritage Centre and we are recommending to other homes that they plan a visit. It’s a unique place and we had a great welcome.”
