Flint Library is set to become a hub of nostalgia and community spirit on Saturday, December 9, as it invites residents to share their memories of special celebrations in the town.

This event is a part of the ‘Off Flint’ project, which celebrates the town’s unique heritage, encompassing the castle and coast.

Residents who have experienced memorable events in Flint, be it weddings at Cornist Hall, Christmas parties at Courtaulds, or holding titles such as Rayon or Football Queen, are encouraged to participate.

Jo Danson, the Community Heritage Officer is particularly interested in personal stories from family occasions and significant town events.

The aim is to engage local people in recording and conserving the rich cultural tapestry of Flint.

The library is also calling for contributions of photographs, artefacts, and memorabilia from these events.

These items will be scanned and included in a permanent archive within the library, offering future generations a window into how celebrations in Flint have evolved – or remained constant – over the years.

In addition to sharing stories and memories, the event will feature a free Christmas craft workshop.

Attendees can enjoy making traditional decorations, such as paper chains and snowflakes, adding a hands-on and creative element to the day.

The gathering is not just about sharing memories; it’s also a social occasion.

The library will offer free tea, coffee, and cake to all attendees, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

The event runs from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm, allowing plenty of time for residents to drop in, share their stories, and connect with others.

Jo Danson is the contact point for further information.

She can be reached at 01352 703042 or via email at jo.danson@flintshire.gov.uk.
