Pentredwr wins funding for new community project

* People gather for the celebration at Pentredwr.

* An alternative use for wool by Sian Hughes.

* Harpist Tom Parry entertains.

Pentredwr and District Community Association has celebrated the completion of its National Lottery-funded project Hwb Pentredŵr which has been running for just over two years.

The funding of this project is nearly at an end but the National lottery Community Fund has seen the good work that has happened over the duration of the project and granted fresh funding for a new project, Calon Pentredŵr.  

A spokesperson for the association said: "We are absolutely thrilled with this news as the current project has been gaining momentum. 

"Our thanks go to the Lottery for the grant and to everyone who buys Lottery tickets as we would not have been able to provide the services we do without it. Look out for more information soon.

"The celebration event was extremely well attended by residents, friends of Pentredŵr, workshop providers, Eirian Pierce Jones from the National Lottery Community Fund, South Denbighshire Community Partnership Representative Jen from Hwb Pengwern, Citizens Advice Bureau representative Robert Butterton, David Sheil from the Area of Outstanding National Beauty, local county councillor Karen Edwards and many more.  

"We had an impressive display of the ongoing Hanes Pentredwr project by David Crane of Llangollen Museum and a display of Alternative Uses for Wool by Gill Britten of Gwlângollen.

"Sian Hughes gave a vote of thanks and showed the recently completed short film made at Hwb Pentredwr showing the hard work which goes into producing wool. 

"Howe’s That 3D felting company provided a felting demonstration and Jane, Jan and Terry who attend Gill’s weekly Maker Day sessions were demonstrating their spinning, weaving and knitting skills. 

"Tom Parry entertained on his harp and Marian Morris of Ceiriog Catering provided a wonderful buffet for all to enjoy. 

"The name Hwb Pentredŵr will not be disappearing, however, as Pentredwr and District Community Association have renamed the Community Centre building, Hwb Pentredŵr, so the name lives on."
