Tea & Tales Aug 22 Flood Control

Brenda McLeod was raised in Pemberton from the age of 8 years old. Her parents Howard and Marion Ayers moved full time to Pemberton in the early 50's. Brenda is the current chair of the Pemberton Valley Dyking District and has a passion for local history including the history of the PFRA project. Brenda is also the chair of the museum and has supported the museum with her mother Marion for many years.

The PFRA project of 1947-48 made massive physical changes to the Pemberton Valley though it may be hard to imagine the scale of this project at the time. This year is also the 70th anniversary of the Pemberton Valley Dyking District and it was formed as a result of the drainage and dyking of the valley.
