The museum was recently fortunate to have support from two community organisations for new displays.  The Port of Milford Haven, through their Community Fund,  and Tenby Historical Society generously provided support for five bilingual interpretive panels for the museum’s anniversary displays, which are renewed annually.

The panels include the unveiling of Welsh Memorial to Prince Albert on Castle Hill (1865); the opening of the lifeboat station on Castle Hill (1905); Kirkland winning the Grand National (1905); the tragedy of the North Shore cliff fall (1955) and the anniversary of the first Boxing Day Swim (1970).

Anna Malloy, PR and Communications Manager at the Port of Milford Haven, said “Tenby Museum and Art Gallery is an asset to Pembrokeshire and we are delighted to help with funding for these new educational panels. The museum is doing a fantastic job in promoting the county’s heritage and bringing history to life for visitors of all ages.”

Douglas Fraser, Chairman of Tenby Historical Society, said, “Tenby is fortunate in having such an excellent little museum which serves to raise the awareness of residents and visitors alike to the fascinating history of our town.  We should all do whatever we can to support and encourage this invaluable resource.”
