The group have recently opened a new premises in Dimond Street in Pembroke Dock which is open to all members of the community who require support.
The group's website can be found at www.pembrokedockencompassgroup.org.uk
Pater Hall Community Trust
A number of years ago the Town Council decided the best way forward for the Pater Hall was that a Community Trust would lease and run the building. This means that the Trust, which is also a Registered Charity, has better access to Grants than the Town Council has and partnership with various groups which use the facilities at the hall ensure good governance for the benefit of the community. To date over £400,000 has been generated in Grants and with the Town Council also providing generous backing, there have been many improvements.
The Trustees are made up of five Town Councillors and five Community Trustees and are charged with providing the best possible use of the Main Hall and the other 3 function rooms.
Bookings for the hall can be made on 01646 622788.

Pembroke Borough Silver Band
The band has always been a big part of Pembroke Dock since it was founded in 1953 and is much loved and respected for it's participation in all the town's big parades. It has been supported financially by the Town Council for many years with regular grants and some of the band's surplus instruments are stored in the council offices.
