The Society’s origins were in the Friends of Tenby organisation which was set up back in 1955 to stimulate public interest in Tenby for both residents and visitors alike. The aim was to protect the elements and features that make Tenby so special by promoting high standards of planning, preservation, development and architecture.
Those aims to develop and maintain the best in Tenby continue today.
The Society is also lucky to have been bequeathed an area of land known as Allen’s View, a viewpoint and garden on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path at the top of Northcliffe, between Tenby and Waterwynch Bay. The Society seeks to manage the gardens ethically and sustainably whilst continuing to provide a public place from which the views are truly breath-taking.
We currently have around 100 members including local residents, businesses and visitors, all seeking to contribute to Tenby’s future. Members do this through subscriptions and donations and via quarterly Newsletters, publication of comments in local press and through volunteering opportunities.
We always welcome guests to our regular meetings held every two months so why not come along and see us in action?
The meetings are usually held at the Fourcroft Hotel at 2pm but you can find out more detailed information from the PUBLICATIONS & DOWNLOADS area of this website.
