An exhibition of local artwork is on display at the Old Courthouse Café and Community Heritage Hub in Flint.

The exhibition, which features work by people of all ages as part of a collaborative community initiative, was launched last week and the paintings will be on display in the community room upstairs until the end of May.

The community art initiative is one of a number of activities at the Old Court House Café and Heritage Hub that has been made possible with funding support from the BIG Lottery Heritage Fund and Flintshire County and the collage of local scenes will remain on permanent display at the centre.

The launch of the exhibition was attended by many of the artists involved along with Mrs Eurwen Edwards OBE, Hon. President of the Pennaf Housing Group, which includes Clwyd Alyn Housing Association which managers the Old Court House Café:

“It was wonderful to meet with so many of the talented local artists whose work is included in the display and I was especially impressed by the enthusiasm and the skills of some of the young people who have taken part, they are a real credit to the town,” said Mrs Edwards.

Lyn Patel, Head of Residential Commercial Services for Clwyd Alyn Housing Association added:

“It’s excellent to see the building used by community groups. There’s a real sense of the premises as a hub of local activity, as well as a place where you can enjoy a great cuppa!”

Restoration of the Old Court House Café was made possible through European and Town Heritage Initiative Funding. The building is Grade Two listed and visitors should note that the art exhibition is only accessible via stairs.
