A PEMBROKE institution celebrated its 90th birthday on Saturday, with old faces, cake and a raffle.

Brown's was first opened in 1928 by husband and wife team, Connie and Sidney Brown.

Connie became famous for her hard work and dedication to the family business and was awarded an MBE in 2006.

The restaurant is now separated into a cafe and chip shop - which opened for the first time in a year to mark the occasion.

Sandra Bryant, Connie and Sidney’s granddaughter said she did not know how many people turned up to the celebration, but the day was a big success.

“It was really good, we were really busy, and it was really nice to see all our old customers again,” she said.

“I have no idea how many people turned up, but there was a constant flow of people throughout the time we were open.”

Sandra said they decided to do a raffle to help raise money for charity.

“Last minute we decided to do a raffle and we raised £110, which is going to be divided between the Angle lifeboat and Parkinson’s research,” she said.

“We gave customers cake and asked if they wanted to buy a raffle ticket, which we drew when the shop was closed.

“Nat Bell from Sugar Belle did the cake and she did a fantastic job.”

Sandra added that everyone at Brown’s wanted to thank the people of Pembroke for coming out and supporting them in their 90th year.
