Carrog to launch new community map

The local community in Carrog will be launching their new community map at an event in the Neuadd at 3.30 pm on Thursday, March 6.  

The map has been created by local artist Ben Davis with a lot of involvement from local residents. The images on the map have been drawn by children during workshops, and these have been painstakingly coloured in using photographs of real textures.  

The result is highly unusual and eye catching, with lots of detail to explore.  Old photographs have also been included to give an insight into how people in the community used to live.

The project has been managed by the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and funded by the Communities and Nature Programme managed by Natural Resources Wales.

The highlight of the event will be a rendition of “Bro Edeirnion” by the local choir Côr Merched Edeyrnion.  The poem was originally written by W.E. Williams, a former headmaster at Glyndyfrdwy school.

Fiona Collins, the Village Hall Secretary and local storyteller is very excited about the launch. She said: "'The village community has been very much involved at every step on the process, and children and adults alike are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the finished map.  

"I have only lived in the village for ten years and have already learnt a lot about my adopted 'milltir sgwar' from the map  - and it's not even here yet!  The fact that members of the choir have agreed to come to sing their signature tune, Bro Edeyrnion, makes the opening event even more special."
