Wrexham Area Civic Society – Thursday 17th September Meeting
The first meeting of the new season of the Wrexham Area Civic Society programme of events will take place on Thursday 17th September, 2015.
A talk is to be given by Amanda Pearson, of the National Trust. This will be entitled “Celebrating 50 years of the Neptune Coastline Campaign”.
Over the past 50 years, the National Trust has purchased 574 miles of coastline, by way of its Neptune Coastline Campaign, including most recently the Great Orme site in Llandudno including the 140-acre Parc Farm. Today the Trust looks after 775 miles of coastline around England, Wales and Northern Ireland. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Neptune campaign, the Trust has launched the next phase of its coastal vision and its 2015 coast and foreshore campaigns, about which we will undoubtedly hear more.
The meeting will take place at Ty AVOW, 21 Egerton Street, Wrexham at 7.15 pm.
All are welcome, admission is FREE. The Society will be pleased to welcome you.
The Civic Society holds a number of talks throughout the winter season. These are open to non-members. Highlights of forthcoming talks include “Medieval Wrexham” by Ray Jones, (22 October), “Corwen – We’ve Arrived!” by George Jones, of Llangollen Railway (18 February 2016), “Chirk – 1000 Years of History” by Graham Greasley (17 March), and “Recent Research into Holt Castle” by Steve Grenter, Heritage Services Manager WCBC, (following our AGM, on 21 April). All these meetings take place at AVOW. The Society will also hold it’s Annual Awards Evening in November, an opportunity to show appreciation of the better (and very occasionally the worst) developments in Wrexham.
