Pembroke Town Walls Trust are recruiting a new Trustee Treasurer to be elected by our members are out AGM on 26th April.
PTWT is a small CIO and does not employ any staff, so ideally this is a role for someone with some accounting knowledge and experience. However, training can be given, and someone experienced in Charity accounting will be able to mentor the new Treasurer.

Work has started on the repair of the Town Walls on the Tabernacle Garden site. This is an exciting moment for the Trust and marks a key milestone in our goal to protect the Town Walls for future generations. The work, funded by the National Lottery, will demonstrate sympathetic conservation of the Walls and form part of a public garden and the Journey Through Time exhibition at the Tabernacle.
Nikki was one of the very first active volunteers with Pembroke 21C Community
Association when it was established back in 2001 and was a Trustee of Pembroke Town
Walls Trust from 2012- Nov 2015. Across a broad spectrum of activities, she consistently
devoted hours and hours of her time to help to celebrate and regenerate Pembroke.
Nikki was passionate about so many things:- our wildlife through her work with the Wildlife
Trust with a particular interest in the otters in the Millponds; recording our history and
stories through The Pembroke Story Project, creating a website bursting with facts and
knowledge – this project was housed in the Tabernacle United Reformed Church in Main
Street where she displayed a frequently updated exhibition and held monthly story telling
events; she led a group of litter pickers who one Saturday morning each month collect litter
along the Commons or the Millponds; she led the Town Heritage and Environment Group
who managed, among other things, the derelict spaces along the commons by sowing
them with glorious wild flowers – the same group have started a project to record the
medieval burgage plots within our town walls.
Nikki’s research into the Pembroke Story Project brought her very close to our local
community in conversations about the history of our living town. So many, through her,
could contribute to the ‘story’. She created opportunity to hear the voice of the community
which has evolved into a fellowship that is run by Tabernacle URC. Nikki helped the
church understand how to be ‘church’ in their community.
In the last two years, she worked with artist Lisa Hellier to produce two stunning bilingual
trail maps of Pembroke packed with information – Pembroke Nature Trail which takes you
on a biodiverse celebration around the town and Junior History Detectives for young
people to find out the history, tales and legends of their town.
Most recently she was working with the same artist to prepare interpretation boards for the
Journey Through Time heritage garden behind the Tabernacle. Regrettably she died
before this could be completed but it will be lovingly dedicated to her memory.
We have lost a very dear and remarkable friend who we will not forget and who has left
her wonderful legacy throughout our community.
Rest in Peace Nikki.
