Police officers are investigating a break-in at the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre, which included damage to the memorial window.

A glass panel on the front door was smashed and a plastic collection box was taken from inside. It was later discovered in a nearby alleyway.

“We are currently closed to the public due to a senseless break-in last night,“ staff posted on the Heritage Centre’s official Facebook page. “We are awaiting instructions from the Police to see if and when we can reopen. We will update our social media and website when we know what we are able to do.”

“Unfortunately our beloved memorial window was also damaged during attack,“ they added. “We are busy trying to get things ready for our big weekend, which will (hopefully) still take place as planned.”
