History in your Hands? /

Denbigh Museum is asking for your help as they prepare for a walk down memory lane with their ‘Denbigh Schools – Past and Present’ exhibition which will be launched at the Museum in May. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

They are looking for any objects people may have at home that can tell the story of the history of Denbigh schools. Do you still have any of your old school books, uniform, scarves, photographs, school reports or sports equipment – or anything else? If so, the event organisers would love to hear from you! ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Medwyn Williams, chair of the event committee, explained: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“This is the first time an exhibition charting the history of all the town’s schools will be held under one roof and we hope to make this a great success but we need the help of local people to make it happen.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

All eight of the schools currently in Denbigh will be taking part – Denbigh High, Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, St Brigid’s, Myddelton College (formerly Howell’s School), Ysgol Frongoch, Ysgol Y Parc, Ysgol Pendref and Ysgol Twm o’r Nant. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The organisers are asking for memorabilia to be loaned or even donated to the Museum collections for use in the exhibition. Anyone who thinks they can help, please contact Judith Stringfellow at or Medwyn Williams on 01745 817095 in the first instance with a list what you can donate and someone will be in touch. Alternatively, feel free to call into the museum on Monday afternoons (1:30 – 4pm) where members of Denbigh Community Archives will be on hand to speak with you. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
