Sea Cadets Garden Party at  Shipwrights House on the Terrace in the Dockyard

Ginko or maiden hair tree

In the garden of the Master Shipwright's House in the old Royal Dockyard, Pembroke Dock a Japanese Ginko (or maiden hair tree ) grows.  Local tradition has it that the tree was given by the Japanese officer who lodged there while his ship was being built , as mark of his gratitude. Could he have been the then  Lt. Togo?.

Last night’s event was organised by Commander Tony Mason who is President of the Pembroke Dock Sea Cadets,The event was a Garden Party to raise funds for the Sea Cadets Building in the Naval Dockyard, the Building that they have is in need of a New Fire Alarm System which costs many Hundreds of pounds, Quite a Few Guests attended the Party and were hosted by the Fantastic service of the Sea Cadets themselves, My Wife Doris & Myself were very proud to be invited to such a worthwhile cause and would not have missed it for the World.I was so Honoured to be able to meet everyone at the Event and be able to give a Speech to Congratulate everyone involved in the Organising.
To see these young Cadets perform is a real eye opener and should be Awarded for their loyalty and service Well Done to you all.
Peter Kraus
Mayor of Pembroke Dock
