Trimsaran Community Project

There is something special happening at Trimsaran Leisure Centre in half-term week, 24– 28 February. Every day there will be the opportunity to participate in a free project to make a 3D map of the village using a wide range of craft materials. This will then be showcased at the National Eisteddfod to be held in Llanelli this summer. Everyone interested is most welcome to join in and put their craft skills to use. These could be knitting, crochet, sewing, cutting out, colouring or gluing, or take the opportunity to learn something new!

The project aims to record the village using the memories of those who have lived there by asking people to bring with them any information they would like to share with the project such as photographs, newspapers or objects that remind them of something about the village.

The event is being run by the Britain from Above project with Communities First. Britain from Above is Heritage Lottery Funded project designed to showcase rare historical aerial photographs of Wales, Scotland and England taken between 1919 and 1953 which show the changing landscapes of the area. The 3D model map, built by people from the area, will be a handmade aerial view of the village complete with comments, memories and stories from those who take part.

The project is entirely free to take part in with people of all ages welcome. It will be taking place at Trimsaran Leisure Centre during the half-term week:

Monday 24 10am-4pm
Tuesday 25 10am-1pm
Wednesday 26 12:30pm-5pm
Thursday 27 1pm-4pm
Friday 28 10am-1pm and 4pm-5pm to finish off.
