29th March 2017 – Today has been a proud one for us here at Brymbo Heritage because we’ve been awarded nearly £2m by the BIG Lottery for our landscapes project ‘Roots to Shoots’ – a project that will help take our community forward by reusing large parts of our ex-industrial landscape.

The news (and accompanying enomous cheque!) was delivered whilst our Liz Mann was leading our volunteers in their work with Mr Allman’s class from St Mary’s Primary School – they’ve been putting together our next exhibition at Brymbo Enterprise Centre celebrating change and hope…the same topic that our Gary Brown was talking about at the UK Heritage Finance conference in Glasgow, inspiring others to get stuck in and make change happen.

We have a thing about dates. 27th September 1990 sticks in our minds for all the wrong reasons. Perhaps we could allow ourselves, at least for a week or two, to let the date of 29th March 2017 signify a new chapter for our community.
