Today (30 October) we were privileged to welcome Barry John MBE and members of The VC Gallery to the museum.  Barry brought eight veterans and people from the community on a cultural visit to look at the art work at the museum.

The main aims and objectives of the VC Gallery are to help veterans and the community using art engagement and assist in combating social exclusion through cultural activities and interaction.

The members thoroughly enjoyed their visit and particularly enjoyed the work of Lee John Phillips and Diana Brook. ¬†Barry said, “It is very important to be inspired in our environment of Pembrokeshire and to use the museums in our area because of the historical and artistic references both to our past and our present”.
