Welcome to the web site of 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.

I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying our lovely summer.
The news that Mrs Paula Ellis is leaving OYP has come as quite a shock to many of us. Paula has been inspirational in all that she has done in OYP and we all have to admire the tremendous success she has brought to OYP.
At our next meeting and on behalf of all members and officers I will be thanking Paula for her outstanding commitment towards OYP and wishing her every success in her new position. We will miss her, but thankfully she will not be to far away form us.
Best regards to you all.
Jeff Davies, Chairman
