Haverfordwest Roadshow, September 2008

The Women’s Archive ventured into West Wales and to Haverfordwest at start of Autumn. The Roadshow was hosted by Haverfordwest County Library on 13th September as part of the Local Studies Fair week of events and was opened by Debra Griffiths, from the BBC’s Coal House Programme who gave an interesting and humorous talk about her family’s experience in Stack Square.

The event was very well attended –we accepted three exciting deposits and Culturenet Cymru, our technical whizz-kids, recorded one very interesting oral history of Lilian Evans who was a nurse at the first Tuberculosis hospital.

Once again we saw a good amount of nursing memorabilia including Annual Reports from Solva and District Nursing Association and Minute Books from Johnston and Rosemarket District Nursing Association. Other items included:-

Sue Hamill, WAW, and the Griffiths Family at the opening of the Haverfordwest  Roadshow.
