Public meeting to discuss future of Haverfordwest castle
2:45pm Tuesday 4th September 2012 in News
The future of Haverfordwest castle will come under the spotlight this week at a public meeting held in the historic grounds.
The meeting, organised by the Haverfordwest Civic Society, will be held at the castle at 7pm on Wednesday (September 5th) where local historian Mark Muller, beer festival organiser Richard Blacklaw-Jones, and Town Councillor Sarah Llewellyn will address the public.
Mr Muller said that people will have the opportunity to express their concerns about the sale of the castle grounds, including the former prison and governor's house, to make way for a 'boutique hotel' development.
He said: "People are invited to come and listen to three very brief, informative addresses, which will advise people what this town has lost in terms of heritage, due to the administration.
"The point of the meeting is to create a sense of awareness, to look for support, and to have a pleasant social evening."
Mr Muller said that there will also be an update on the town council's efforts to register the castle grounds as a village green, and questions will be invited from the floor afterwards.
He added that a professional harpist and costumed people will provide entertainment for the evening.
The alternative venue in case of poor weather is St Martin's Church hall, seating is limited.
