AM Visits West Wales Maritime

AM Angela Burns visit

There is much interest in the aspirations and plans of the WWMHS and last Friday, 28th March members of the Society welcomed a visit from our AM Mrs Angela Burns who came to view the yard and find out more about the work being carried out by the Society.  It turned out that Angela’s husband is a boat enthusiast and she appeared really interested as the Society Officers showed her around the yard and the sheds which house the collection of vintage boats.

 

 David James, Secretary of the society was pleased with the outcome of her visit.  He said

 “Mrs Burns took great interest in our operations and assured us that if we need help she will do all she can to help us. She understood that the society engages with all the other heritage groups in Pembrokeshire and also our proposals for bringing the dry dock back into fully operational condition so that boat owners with boats too large to lift out of the water by crane would be able to enter and carry out work below the waterline on their boats.”

 

He added that “We have also spoken to Mr Simon Hart MP and he too is enthusiastic about the ideas the society has for regeneration, the continued restoration of vintage vessels to sailing condition and proposed projects such as restoring the Tenby Lugger in one of our sheds.”
