As the local town councillor for Market ward and also the current mayor of Pembroke Dock, it is with great sadness that all the rumours we have been dealing with over the last six months about the possible closure/ relocation of the market have been proved to be true, with the likelihood of the traders having to be out after the new year.
My family has lived in Princes Street since 1953 and in the general area since the war. Gran would go down to the market at 7am every Friday to get her shopping for the weekend and arrange for the greengrocer to put aside fruit boxes for me to collect later to make kindling for her lounge fire. The market has always been a communal event every Friday for the residents of Pembroke Dock and some see their weekly journey to the market as their chance to catch up on the local gossip and meet some of their friends. To lose the market will have a devastating effect on these residents and will probably mean they will not have any reason to leave their homes at all.
