New Defibrillator at AVOW Offices

The Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW) have installed a new defibrillator at the entrance to Tŷ Avow in memory of John Leece Jones, Former AVOW Chair, who tragically passed away on June 1st, 2021.

John was a tremendous asset to AVOW – his knowledge of Wrexham and the voluntary sector were first-rate and his devotion to public service exemplary.

Coedpoeth and Minera Camera Club

Coedpoeth and Minera Camera Club ran an exhibition on March 10th and 11th at Plas Pentwyn, Coedpoeth. The event was very well attended on both days, and those present were very complimentary about the variety of exhibits on display.

Hotwood Fest 2022

Hotwood Fest is a two-day celebration of music held at the Golden Lion in Coedpoeth. This year’s festival will be on Saturday and Sunday, 30th and 31st July. The organisers will be announcing ticket sales soon.

HotWoodFest 2021 raised £2,500 for Mind and £500 for a smaller local cause and prompted the organisers to make it an annual event. In addition, the team holds the Boogie Bingo nights, which also take place in the Golden Lion.

Trevor Scouts Looking For Volunteers

The First Trevor Scout Group have their headquarters near the famous World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Trevor.

Come along and join in with the fun and adventure; they would love to hear from you. Contact Group Scout Leader Elaine Anderson on 07939 476 208 or at elainescouts@btinternet.com.

Home Is Where The Art Is

Slightly further afield, Dave and Lise Roberts have turned their love of art into an exciting venture by opening a new contemporary art and craft gallery at their fine country house home in North Wales. It opens Easter Saturday at Glasfryn Hall (see main image) in the historic town of Caerwys, North Wales, just off the A55 North Wales Expressway.
