The community of Pennar and Bufferland in Pembroke Dock is home to the town's Fire Station and Cricket Club. It has a post office, two pubs, shops a scout hall and two community schools. Overlooking the town, it has lots of open spaces with great views, such as the Barrack Hill where you can see down the Haven.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path passes through Pennar and you can walk alongside the river through fields and farms all the way to Pembroke Quay.
In 2002 a local Action Plan deemed the church hall surplus to requirements and suggested it should be demolished. A public meeting was held at the hall and a small committee was formed with a view to obtaining a lease from the Church of Wales. The lease was acquired in 2004 for 20 years and St Patrick's Community Hall Committee was formed to manage the old church hall. For marketing purposes we call ourselves Pennar Hall so people can place us geographically within the County.
The hall's main hall can hold up to 120 people seated and a second room holds 30. There is a lovely big original curtained stage with lights and a balcony area. There is a kitchen with a microwave, range cooker and fridge freezer which are free of use for any bookings. Toilet facilities are available for men, ladies and disabled users. There is ample parking outside the hall which has full disabled access to the front. The hall is a very popular party venue. The hall has an external noticeboard where community groups and individuals are welcome to place posters and notices.
