Welcome to the Friends of Oriel y Parc, an organisation set up by local residents to support and promote this wonderful facility and it’s aims. We work with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority to encourage the development and use of the facilities afforded by Oriel y Parc. Event publicity and promotion is one of our critical roles; providing and distributing educational and advertising material supporting Oriel y Parc. We are committed to furthering the interest and involvement of the local community in Oriel y Parc, the facilities, events and exhibitions on offer.
We support the continuing work of Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, in providing collections to be viewed at Oriel y Parc on a rotational basis.This includes original works from the Graham Sutherland Collection previously on show at Picton Castle.
The Friends will appoint representatives and delegates to other bodies with whom they may be concerned.
