Heritage Volunteers' Visits

Each year Heritage Volunteers have met together to have an informative day out.  We have visited the Records Office at Hawarden, the Gladstone Library and St. Deniol's Church

Last year we visited Dorfold Hall in Cheshire and this year- by request of our Volunteers - a special guided tour of Erddig was arranged and we were taken around by our Heritage Volunteer Representative who does this sort of thing! 

The tour was on the Mellor Inheritance and told the inside story of the many beautiful pieces of furniture and mirrors, glass and chinaware that John Mellor bought for the house in the early 1700's. 

It was a brilliantly sunny day and a talk on the Gardens was also arranged and given to us by the Head Gardener.  Everyone enjoyed the day and it was a great way to thank all our Volunteers for their sterling work.
