Silver screen for Pembroke Dock?

New research has revealed that a cinema would be just the ticket to revive Pembroke Dock.

A survey of 1,000 residents throughout Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire showed that a cinema and more boutique-style shops are the two things that would draw most people to the town.

"We commissioned the survey after meeting
Pembroke Dock chamber of trade and discussing its concerns about the future of the town," explained Conservative parliamentary candidate Simon Hart.

"Like many other small towns,
Pembroke Dock is going through a tough time and we wanted to find out exactly what would make people most likely to choose to visit or shop there."

The research carried out by ORB amongst a representative sample of 1,000 voters throughout the constituency asked people to choose the top two attractions from a list that would most likely bring them into
Pembroke Dock.

A cinema came out as the biggest draw with 36 per cent saying it would make them visit, followed by more boutique-style shops at 31 per cent.

"The findings are fascinating," said South
Pembrokeshire AM Angela Burns.

"I've reported back to the chamber of trade and while it’s going to be difficult to attract a cinema, the chamber of trade can take heart from the popularity of more boutique-style shops."
