At this time of the year we are usually frantically working on new exhibition themes within the Museum for re-opening after the Winter on St David’s Day.  Unfortunately, we are still not in a position to re-open because of Government restrictions due to the Coronavirus Pandemic and it may be some time yet before we feel it is safe for our volunteers and visitors.

This has not stopped us from meeting our aim of telling the public about the stories of Edeyrnion and we have been very busy, with shop window displays before Christmas, bringing the Christmas Story and the Pantomime to Corwen, and an ongoing display in the empty butcher’s shop window about the past history of Bridge Street told in photographs.

We are also working on an Edeyrnion Timeline to be displayed on the side wall of Canolfan Ni.  Eight volunteers have been involved in research, photography, writing, translation and editing to produce an exhibition that will be installed in time for St David’s Day.  So, this year our Museum moves outside!  

We are also still adding to our artefacts and we were delighted to obtain a superb sampler made by a child in Cynwyd school in 1838. 

Our Facebook page, written by Laura Watkins, has new postings every day on all sorts of subjects about the Edeyrnion area.  From this page we are gathering photographs and stories from local people re-telling tales from the past and this will be a wonderful resource for the Museum.  There are now over 1000 people following the page.  Are you one of them?

Our Chairman, Jim Ritchie, has started to produce a monthly newsletter, primarily for our volunteers, but also for anyone with an interest in the Museum.  If you would like a copy emailed to you use the Contact Page to make the request.  We would also like to hear from you if you would be interested in volunteering with us.  Maybe you would like to help with our next project – a series of boards on the side wall of the Museum telling the story of this area of Corwen that can be seen from the flagstaff on Pen-y-Pigyn.   We look forward to hearing from you.
