Pembroke & Monkton Local History Society meets again on Saturday April 1 with a Coffee Morning and Talk in Pembroke Town Hall, commencing at 10am. 

Speaker this month is Terry John and the subject of his talk is ‘John Taylor; the Water Poet'.  John Taylor was a remarkable writer of poems, epigrams and prose who was born in the reign of Elizabeth I and became famous for a number of journeys he made around Britain. He made an eccentric tour of Wales in 1652, visiting Pembroke, Tenby and St Davids, and described it all in verse and prose. 

Doors will open from 10am for coffee and an opportunity to visit the Museum and Council Chamber, which are situated on the first floor of the Town Hall – a lift is available for disabled access.  Following this, at 11am, assemble in the George Lewis Room for the talk. 

Everyone is welcome to attend - you do not have to be a member - and entry is free.
