A WEEKEND of anniversary celebrations for a Pembrokeshire Baptist chapel will offer locals and visitors a chance to see a rare collection of photographs celebrating village life.

Moriah Baptist Chapel in Marloes marks its 125th anniversary on July 8, and for a whole weekend pictures stretching back to the 1870s will be on display, following a successful exhibition two years ago.

Pictures of Marloes people and traditions will sit alongside newspaper articles, local poetry and other pieces of memorabilia covering chapel history and village life across the decades on Saturday, July 7, between 11am and 4pm, and Sunday, July 8, between 12.30pm and 4pm.

All members of the community are also welcome to join the chapel’s 125th anniversary service at 10.30am on Sunday, July 8, with guest preacher Rev Ray Lewis.

Visitors are also invited to bring along their own memories, photos and any other mementos of life through the years in Marloes and St Brides and other surrounding villages.

Chapel Secretary Paul James said: “We ran a similar event showing these unique photographs back in 2016, and ever since we have had people asking when we might be putting them on display again.

"As we come together to celebrate 125 years of fellowship at Moriah Chapel we thought this would be a good time to put on another exhibition and we hope to see as many people as possible to join us in celebrating our amazing Marloes heritage.

"We will also be holding a raffle with some wonderful prizes to be won."
