Flint Castlesmall.jpg‘Off Flint’ – Celebrating our town, castle and coast is an exciting project to involve local people in recording, conserving and celebrating the rich heritage of Flint town, castle and coast. Stories, photos and artefacts gathered during the project will form the basis of a new community archive in Flint Library so that the information gathered is widely accessible to everyone.

Pop into Flint Library on Saturday 11 February 2023 between 10:30am and 12:30pm and find out what ‘Off Flint’ is all about and how you can get involved.

We have some fabulous footage of Flint from the 1920s through to the 1980s featuring special events and everyday life so come along and see if you can recognise any of your family or friends.

If you have any old photos you would like to share or have scanned please bring them along. 

To tempt you, there will be free tea, coffee & cakes available!

Free training sessions in interviewing, recording and editing skills for anyone interested in volunteering with the project will be arranged later in the spring.

The project is led by Flintshire County Council and has received £54,200 funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
