‘Celebrating our town, castle and coast’
Off Flint is an exciting new project to record, conserve and celebrate the rich heritage of Flint and in particular the town, castle and coast.
This project, funded through The National Lottery, aims to showcase and celebrate the town, history and people of Flint – or should we say “off Flint”!
Library Manager, Susannah Hill, said on behalf of the Aura team: “We are excited and proud to be taking part in the Off Flint project and for the library to be at the heart of the community archive. Flint has such a rich heritage and so many amazing stories waiting to be told!”
We are gathering stories, photos and artefacts which will form the basis of a new community archive in Flint Library ensuring that the information gathered is widely accessible to everyone.
Free training in interviewing, recording and editing skills will also be available for anyone interested in volunteering with the project.
The project will run until Spring 2024 so there will be plenty of time to share and celebrate Flint’s proud history.
Are you passionate about Flint’s rich heritage? Do you have a story to share about the town, the coast or the castle? If so, we want to hear from you! Pop into Flint Library any Tuesday morning during term time between 10.00am and 12:00pm to meet the Heritage Officer to find out more.
