Projects Past & Present
Blue Plaque Scheme
Where heritage plaques were placed around the town showing places of historical importance,. In this we were assisted with a grant from CADW
Collected from members of the public over a period of years, available on DVD disc. This has formed the basis of talks, books & as a research tool for local historians. A Heritage Lottery Grant was awarded us for this project. See the menu item ‘Community Archive‘ for more information and to purchase a copy.
A journal produced annually , containing articles written by members of the Society as well as other contributors. We obtained a Heritage Lottery Grant in 2000 to allow us to publish our first copy. Click Here for more information
Daniel Owen Festival
For the past few years we have sponsored an event at this important festival, celebrating the life & works of Daniel Owen, the Welsh novelist. For more information, please go to: http://www.danielowenfestival.com/
This event is part of the European Heritage Days which were run by the Civic Trust in Wales ( now by CADW), offering the opportunity to visit a range of buildings not normally open to the public. We have participated for several years to this. We obtained grant from Cadwyn Clwyd to allow us to run these events & to produce the necessary literature.
2014 Mold Remembers
We hosted an exhibition in the Ex Servicemen’s Club, Mold to commemorate the beginning of the Great War. A lot of the material used had come from our Community Archive with many reminiscences of local people & their memorabilia. Clwyd Theatr Cymru produced a short play for us which was performed at the opening night. Again we were assisted with a grant from Cadwyn Clwyd.
We are in the process of applying for a Heritage Lottery Grant for the conservation & restoration of the tomb of the landscape artist, Richard Wilson who is buried in St Mary’s Church yard in Mold. If successful we will be running several related activities including, art workshops, school painting competitions, other school projects, exhibition etc.
