Volunteers wanted

The West Wales Maritime Heritage Society is run entirely by volunteers. The society welcomes new members and if you like mucking about in boats you could turn up at Hancock’s Yard on a Monday when the band of volunteers get together to work on the boats.

Enthusiasm is the most important attribute – if you haven’t any particular skills, they can be acquired on the job. There are no qualifications needed. Volunteers also have the opportunity to sail the boats and participate in the set piece events for which the Society is well known in both Pembroke and Pembroke Dock.

If boatbuilding and sailing doesn't appeal, volunteers are also needed to man the museum and to assist in research and associated clerical tasks.

Come along to Hancock's yard any Monday after 10am and meet the crew. You will find a warm welcome waiting. Alternatively send an email for more details to

Membership costs £40.00 per annum and enables you to take part in Society activities, work on our heritage boats and help with the Maritime Museum. Cadet membership is available for young people for £5.00 per year and temporary membership is available for visitors for £5.00 per month.
